Fall Out Boy have spent 53 weeks at number one on the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart in the 2010s to date, more than any other artist.

The UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart is a weekly record chart based on rock and heavy metal single and song sales, downloads and streams from Friday to Thursday in the United Kingdom.[1] Compiled by the Official Charts Company, the chart began tracking for the week ending 15 October 1994. To date during the 2010s, a total of 92 singles have reached number one. The first number-one track on the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart in the 2010s was "Where We Belong" by Welsh alternative rock band Lostprophets.[2] The latest (and current) number-one is "Hook, Line & Sinker" by Royal Blood.[3]

The most successful artist in the 2010s on the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart to date is American band Fall Out Boy, who have topped the chart for 53 weeks with eight different singles. The band's 2015 release "Centuries" spent 27 weeks at number one, second only to "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls with 43 weeks in the 2010s. Disturbed's cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" so far has the longest single run at number one of the decade of 17 weeks. Warner Bros. Records is the most successful label of the decade to date, with 15 different singles totalling 106 weeks at number one.
