After six consecutive weeks in the runner-up position, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ (RHCP) “Dark Necessities” finally overtakes Volbeat’sThe Devils Bleeding Crown” at Active Rock radio.  In doing so, the RHCP ends Volbeat’s seven-week run at number one.

Dark Necessities’” audience total pushes past 7.5 million impressions this week on Active Rock radio which is exceptionally rare.  Dating back to August 2012 (how far Active Rock Airplay Charts date back on Kworb), the RCHP have earned the third-highest weekly audience total among all Active Rock songs.

Only four other songs have surpassed 7.5 million weekly impressions in the last four years 

Only Disturbed’sThe Light” and “The Sound of Silence,” the latter of which is the only song to breach the 8 million impressions mark, have received more than 7.6 million impressions in a single week.  According to Kworb’s website, the only other two songs to pass 7.5 million weekly impressions since August 2012 are Volbeat's "The Devil's Bleeding Crown" and Three Days Grace’sChalk Outline.”
