January 15th, 2024
Shinedown added to their record for the most No. 1 singles since the launch of Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart with “A Symptom of Being Human.” 
The band hit No. 1 for the first time back in 2005 with “Save Me” and most recently with “Daylight” in August 2022. “A Symptom of Being Human” is their 19th No. 1.

Congratulations to the band, their label, and their team, including Gwyther Bultman and In De Goot Entertainment / McGathy Promotions, who manage the band.
