32 times the scene rocked the ‘TRL’ countdown

LIMP BIZKIT

Limp Bizkit charted 10 videos starting with “Faith” in 1998. Of those 10, five were retired: “Faith,” “Nookie,” “N 2 Gether Now,” “Rollin” and “My Way.” While many tracks charted well, “Nookie” and “Break Stuff” were the only two to reach a No. 1 spot.

LINKIN PARK

Linkin Park first entered TRL’s chart with “In The End,” which only lasted one day at No. 9 in October 2001. In 2003, “Somewhere I Belong” charted highest at No. 3. Following that, “Faint” and “Numb” both remained on deck, while “Breaking The Habit” was included as No. 15 in a rare Top 20 countdown but never cracked the Top 10. The band finally got their No. 1 spot with “What I’ve Done” in April 2007.

MARILYN MANSON

Marilyn Manson was the inaugural guest on the first episode of TRL in September 1998. He entered the first countdown with “The Dope Show,” peaking at No. 3. Manson had several long runs and seven tracks total make the cut, but none ever reached No. 1.

METRO STATION

Metro Station solidified a peak No. 5 slot with “Shake It” in June 2008, which lasted 14 days on the chart.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE

MCR charted six times, but their first track, “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” only lasted one day at No. 10 in January 2005. The following track, “Helena,” did much better, becoming their first No. 1 and hitting that goal 15 times. They achieved that top spot again with “Ghost Of You,” “Famous Last Words” and “Teenagers.” “Welcome To The Black Parade” was the only other track not to hit No. 1, having peaked at No. 3.

NEW FOUND GLORY

Between 2002 and 2004, New Found Glory charted four times: “My Friends Over You,” “Head On Collision,” “All Downhill From Here” and “Failure’s Not Flattering.” The band obtained a No. 1 slot and their only retired video at 50 days via “All Downhill From Here.”

NO DOUBT

No Doubt charted 10 times in five years beginning with “Oi To The World” in December 1998. Their best were via several No. 5 peaks for “Hey Baby,” “Hella Good” and “Underneath It All.”

PANIC! AT THE DISCO

“I Write Sins Not Tragedies” had the most surprising run for Panic! At The Disco as it sat at No. 10 for one day in January 2006. “But It’s Better If You Do” peaked at No. 7 in July, but “Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off” never left the deck in October. The band achieved their highest slot with “Nine In The Afternoon” hitting No. 2 in February 2008.
