skillet-2016According to The Pulse Of Radio, Skillet has landed the first No. 1 track of its career on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart with ‘Feel Invincible’. The track is taken from the band’s latest album, “Unleashed”, and jumped from No. 4 to the top spot this week. Rock tracks reaching the top of the Christian chart are rare, especially after spending 31 weeks on the survey — as ‘Feel Invincible’ did — before hitting the top.

‘Feel Invincible’ is the 25th Skillet song to hit the Christian chart in the survey’s 13-year history. The band previously peaked at No. 9 in 2007 with ‘Rebirthing’. Frontman John Cooper said about reaching the top: “We are thrilled to have our first No. 1 on Hot Christian Songs. It’s so cool to see the dedication of the fans and awesome to see a Christian rock song cross some huge boundaries.”

‘Feel Invincible’ also reached the top of the mainstream rock radio airplay chart. Continue reading »
