Ten years on, and Pierce The Veil and Kellin Quinn’s classic is still making serious waves.
Ten years after its release, ‘King For A Day’ still has an incredible effect on all who listen to it.
That’s Pierce The Veil and Kellin Quinn’s scene classic if you didn’t already know.
And it has hit a whole new level of achievement this week, with an appearance on the Billboard Hard Rock Steaming Songs Chart.
Oh yeah, it’s at No.01.
It’s the highest ever position that the song has achieved on this chart, which is pretty incredible, isn’t it? It’s also the band’s second No.01 on a Billboard chart, joining ‘The Divine Zero’ which hit the top on the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales Chart.
‘King For A Day’ is also sitting at No.07 on the Rock Streaming Songs Chart, No.06 on Alternative Streaming Songs and No.21 on Alternative Digital Song Sales.
The power of TikTok, eh?
The song is the band’s most streamed song of all time over on Spotify, sitting pretty at just over 206 million.
And the video has 146 million views, and is still as iconic now as when it first dropped:
