Blink-182’s Travis Barker Lands at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Songwriters Chart
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has mounted an impressive feat this week. The musician hit the No. 1. spot on Billboard's Rock Songwriters chart thanks to a wealth of composition credits carrying his name.
In fact, 15 total songs featuring Barker's songwriting prowess appear on Billboard's current Hot Rock Songs tabulation. That number is what propels the drummer to No. 1 on the associated Rock Songwriters roundup. Not to mention, it's the first time the musician has achieved such an accolade.
As reported by Billboard, Barker's current bandmates in Blink, Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba, tie for No. 2 on the Rock Songwriters chart. That's due to their 14 songwriting credits apiece on Hot Rock Songs.
The influx of Blink-related tunes on the current Hot Rock Songs survey is tied to last month's release of the band's latest album, Nine. On Hot Rock Songs' listing for the week ending Oct. 5, Blink-182 claim 14 total spots among the 50 entries. However, it's Barker's collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Yungblud that garners his highest placed Hot Rock Songs number. The team-up "I Think I'm Okay" slots in at No. 3.
