Rise Against’s ‘Nowhere Generation’ Is Band’s First Airplay No. 1

The song rules Mainstream Rock Airplay.

For the first time, Rise Against is No. 1 on a Billboard radio airplay chart.

“Nowhere Generation,” the title track from the Chicago band’s ninth studio album, lifts 2-1 on the Mainstream Rock Airplay tally dated Aug. 7.

Rise Against’s first ruler follows a career on the radio charts that began with “Give It All,” a No. 37 hit on Alternative Airplay in January 2005. The group first reached Mainstream Rock Airplay in October 2008, with “Re-Education (Through Labor),” which rose to No. 22 the following January. Prior to “Generation,” Rise Against’s best on Mainstream Rock Airplay was a No. 2 peak for “The Violence” in August 2017.
