More Killers news

A few weeks ago, we learned that  Linkin Park and the Killers topped the list in the the early 2000s of the most-streamed songs. 

In the year 2000, Linkin Park’s “In The End” dominated streaming charts with over 16.8 million plays. Additionally, to nobody’s surprise, the Killers’ banger “Mr. Brightside” was the most-streamed song in 2003 with over 14.6 million streams.

To put things into perspective, “Mr. Brightside” doubled in streams in comparison to other No. 1 songs visible on the chart in the early 2000s.

Additionally, by the looks of the chart, the popularity of streaming only recently started picking up speed. Prior to Keala Settle and the rest of The Greatest Showman cast’s song “This Is Me” in 2017, no song reached a billion streams.

As of 2018, the most-streamed song within a given year was in 2018 with Drake’s “God’s Plan.”
