Beartooth Earns Second Mainstream Rock Airplay No. 1 With ‘I Was Alive’

After notching its first No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart last November, Beartooth scores its second on the May 11-dated survey with “I Was Alive.”

The song follows the group’s one-week rule with “Might Love Myself.”

The two No. 1s mark new heights for the band from Columbus, Ohio, on Mainstream Rock Airplay, which the act first hit with the No. 33-peaking “Beaten In Lips” in 2015. It logged two initial top 10s with “Hated” (No. 6, April 2017) and “Disease” (No. 9, December 2018). Beartooth boasts 12 total career entries on the chart, all on Red Bull Records.

Concurrently, “I Was Alive” ranks at No. 15, after reaching No. 13, on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart, up 5% to a new weekly-best 2.6 million audience impressions April 26-May 2, according to Luminate. The track is Beartooth’s second-highest-ranking hit on the list, after “Might Love Myself” rose to No. 11 in November.

On the most recent multimetric Hot Hard Rock Songs chart (dated May 4, reflecting data April 19-25), “I Was Alive” placed at No. 19, after reaching No. 10 in April. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 306,000 official U.S. streams in that span.

“I Was Alive” is the second single, after “Might Love Myself,” from The Surface, Beartooth’s fifth studio LP. It debuted at No. 1 on the Top Hard Rock Albums chart in October 2023 and has earned 91,000 equivalent album units since its release.

All Billboard charts dated May 11 will update on Tuesday, May 7.
