Record Breaking Fast Riser To #1 Rock: Royals by Lorde

Royals by Lorde is the new number one rock song this week.  This is the first rock hit by Lorde, and it rushed to the number one spot in just five weeks on the Rock Top 30. Here is this week’s chart.


Here is the video for Royals. Last week Royals was #11. That means it skipped over the entire top 10. This is extremely rare.

In fact, this is the first time ever that a first Rock Top 30 hit — or even a first Rock Top 20 hit — bypassed the top 10 to hit number one.  Newcomer Lorde joins the likes of such super groups as Queen, Aerosmith, Van Halen and Pearl Jam to rocket to number one rock.

Here is the video for Dani California by Red Hot Chili Peppers.  This was the second time Red Hot Chili Peppers hit number one rock without first stopping in the top 10, with Otherside being the first. No other band did this twice.
