Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has achieved the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Rock Songwriters chart due to his various collaborations. 

In addition to the No. 1 spot, he has 15 songs that include his songwriting credits on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart. Those tracks include songs from blink’s latest album NINE and his collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and YUNGBLUD “I Think I’m Okay”.

Those 15 accolades are what pushed Barker to the No. 1 spot on the songwriting chart. This is the first time someone has achieved such an honor with so many tracks.

The No. 2 spot on the songwriting chart is tied by the other two blink-182 members, Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus, for their work on the 14 charting songs from NINE. All but one of the tracks, “Happy Days” from the new blink-182 album are charting. 

While 14 tracks from that album helped in Barker’s charting placement, it was the collab with MGK and YUNGBLUD, which is his highest-charting song on Rock Songs at No. 3, that helped take him to the leading position.
