The '90s were a great period for Mainstream Rock music and that's reflected in Billboard's newly published chart revealing the Greatest of All-Time Mainstream Rock Songs. But you might not immediately recall the band who currently sits atop the list.
Days of the New hold the honor as having the No. 1 overall mainstream rock song of all-time with their 1997 single "Touch, Peel and Stand." The track enjoyed most of its success in 1998 as the song was a late December 1997 release. It climbed to No. 1 where it remained for 16 straight weeks in 1998, which was a record for the longest time spent at the top at the time. 3 Doors Down would eclipse that mark a few years later with 21 weeks at No. 1 for their song "Loser."
