Bring Me The Horizon's Top 10 biggest songs on the Official Chart
29 January 2019 | By Helen Ainsley

Taking a look back at the Sheffield band's most popular UK tracks.

15 years after releasing their first EP, Bring Me The Horizon are set to reach new heights this week - their new album amo is on course to debut at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.

If they can do it, they'll replace the seemingly unstoppable Greatest Showman album, which is currently sitting on a total of 28 weeks at the top (!).

Each of the Steel City band's albums have performed increasingly well on the Official Chart. Their previous collection, 2015’s That’s The Spirit - their bestselling album to date - reached Number 2, pipped to the post by Stereophonics' Keep The Village Alive.

In 2013, Sempiternal debuted at Number 3, and prior to that, There Is A Hell Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is A Heaven Let's Keep It A Secret was a Top 20 hit.

To celebrate this huge potential milestone for the group, we've taken a look back at BMTH's Top 10 biggest singles in the UK.

At Number 1, Bring Me's biggest ever UK single is Throne with 290,400 total units. The song didn’t quite crack the Top 40, peaking at Number 51 in 2015, but it has clocked up the most streams of any of their tracks: a not-too-shabby 34.5 million.

The second biggest song from the band - and the bestselling overall at 73,700 physical and digital copies - is Drown, totalling 240,000 combined sales when streams are added in. It’s their highest charting single, reaching Number 17 in December 2014.

The lead single from That’s The Spirit, Happy Song, is at 3 (175,000k). Follow You is at Number 4 (175k), and Can You Feel My Heart from the Sempiternal album rounds out the band’s Top 5 (163,300).

Just missing out on the Top 10, Mantra - the first promotional single from amo - lands at 13 after earning almost 8 million streams since August 2018.

Surprised that 'Throne' has more streams than 'Drown'. I assume the latter is still comfortably ahead on actual sales?

'Shadow Moses' in the top 10 *.*

Massive recency bias - really shows how different the audience must be more that nothing from before Sempiternal can make it in there even though their older fans would view them as 'classics'. I thought It Never Ends might sneak into the top 10.

I love pretty much every song in this top ten! Impressed that Sempiternal still has a few entries other than Can You Feel My Heart in here! Sempiternal and That’s The Spirit were my two favourite albums of theirs, I don’t think amo will ever come close for me, though I can see a few of those songs making it into their top ten in a few months.

Of course there's going to be a recency bias, they didn't really become as big as they are until Sempiternal and they are at their biggest now.

Their older music won't appeal to the fans of their newer albums, myself included.

It is, 73,700 copies sold according to the report.

I was expecting a couple of pre-Sempiternal songs too. I know that album was when they started breaking into the mainstream but, like you say, their earlier stuff are very popular with the older fans. I suspect that those songs still have decent sale totals despite not appearing in the Top 10 best sellers and despite not charting.
