Mammoth WVH earns second-straight 'Billboard' number-one hit with "Don't Back Down"

Wolfgang Van Halen isn't backing down from the top of the Billboard charts.

The son of the late Eddie Van Halen -- and one-time Van Halen bassist -- has earned his second number-one hit the Mainstream Rock Airplay ranking with "Don't Back Down," the latest single from his Mammoth WVH solo project.

Mammoth previously reached the Mainstream Rock Airplay peak earlier this year with "Distance," Wolfgang's tribute to his iconic father, who passed away in October 2020.

With "Distance" and "Don't Back Down," both of Mammoth WVH's first two singles to appear on Mainstream Rock Airplay eventually grabbed the top spot on the chart. The last artist to accomplish that feat was The Glorious Sons, who hit number one with their first Mainstream Rock Airplay entry "S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)" in 2019, and then again with "Panic Attack" later that year.

You'll find both "Distance" and "Don't Back Down" on the self-titled debut Mammoth WVH album, which dropped in June. Wolfgang is currently on tour in support of the record playing headlining shows and opening for Guns N' Roses.
