As Mammoth WVH continues to create new career milestones for Wolfgang Van Halen, another achievement is reached as the latest single “Don’t Back Down” reaches #1 on the Active Rock charts. The song has been gaining momentum since it impacted radio in April and the week of September 6th sees it grab the top spot on both the Mediabase and BDS Active Rock charts. “Don’t Back Down” was released five months ago and has over 6 million combined streaming impressions.
