Foo Fighters have had the No. 1 song on the Billboard Rock Songs chart for 20 weeks. Could they make it 21 weeks in a row? No, but yes. Confused? We'll explain down below.

Early in July, Sublime With Rome entered our chart at No. 10 with their debut single, "Panic." Then, they quickly scurried out of the Top 10. This week, though, they return to No. 10, hoping to hang around a little longer this time around.

Incubus continue their slide. This week "Adolescents," which was once as high as No. 3, falls another place to No. 9.

If slow and steady wins the race, then Avenged Sevenfold are going to be champions soon. "So Far Away" debuted in the Top 10 two weeks ago at No. 10. Last week, they were at No. 9. This week, it's No. 8. See ya at No. 7 next week, fellas.

Is this as high as Sixx:A.M. will go with "Lies of the Beautiful People"? For a third straight week, the song sits at No. 7.

Death Cab for Cutie have been hanging around the center of our Top 10 for a few weeks now. This week, "You Are a Tourist" off Codes and Keys falls one spot to No. 6.

Like Death Cab for Cutie, Coldplay have been bouncing around between No. 5 and No. 6. This week, "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" moves up one place to No. 5.

Foster the People will be playing this year's Lollapalooza, and while they didn't make my list of the 10 must-see bands at the festival, there's a good bet they'll be a popular draw. On our chart, "Pumped Up Kicks" stays at No. 4 for a second week in a row.

It had to end sometime. After nine weeks at No. 2, Seether's "Country Song" drops one notch, probably effectively ending its hopes of ever reaching the top spot.

No, you're not seeing things. For the first time since it arrived on our chart, "Rope" is not at No. 1. After a 20-week run, the Foo Fighters single off Wasting Light falls to No. 2.

For the first time ever on our chart, the same band is at No. 1 and No. 2. "Walk," the second single off Wasting Light, has replaced "Rope" at the top. In other words, Foo Fighters have now had the biggest rock song in our countdown for 21 straight weeks.
