on BILLBOARD.COM:

"The Modern Rock radio airplay chart finally gets a new No. 1 as Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire" climbs one position to the top this week. It's the first No. 1 for the band -- and only its second chart hit, following 2005's No. 23-peaking "The Bucket." Kings of Leon replace the Offspring's "You're Gonna Go Far Kid," which had reigned at No. 1 for the past 11 consecutive weeks. Don't cry for the Offspring, though, for its new single, "Kristy, Are You Doing OK?," bows at No. 34. The latter is the group's 23rd chart hit. It ties the band with Green Day for the fifth-most Modern Rock hits in the 20-year history of the chart. Only U2 (35), Pearl Jam (32), Red Hot Chili Peppers (27) and R.E.M. (26) have more."

That's cool :cool: But I always though Green day had like 29 singles, not 23. Maybe not all of them went through Billboard. Didn't knew Pearl Jam had 32 singles. Oh well, that's cool, anw :D

They're counting songs that have charted, not just singles. But this is really cool.

Oxy, "Kick Him" was a single -- the rock radio station in my hometown played it a lot when I was in high school -- but I doubt it ever charted.

You are wrong: kick him charted I think when Ignition was released before smash.. it was only released as a single after gotta get away tho I think...

I don't remember where I know this from, but I know kick him when he's down atleast in like a KROQ top 100 something presmash..

now having read the wiki entry it seems like it charted modern rock when it was released as a single... whateva :)

Also individual radio station charts do not count as 'charting' in the US. ;)

well until mike posted the wiki link we were all kind of stabbing in the dark.. I figured chartin on a radio station is as good a time as any to be "charting" ya know.. in the US ;)

I didn't know R.E.M. had more than a few hits... (I know that's kind of irrelevant but it just shows how oblivious I am)

Anyway, according to Wikipedia:

Come Out and Play
Self-Esteem
Gotta Get Away
Kick Him When He's Down
Smash It Up
All I Want
Gone Away
I Choose
Pretty Fly
Why Get a Job
TKAA
She's Got Issues
Original Prankster
Want You Bad
Totalimmortal
Defy You
Hit That
Can't Get My Head around You
Can't Repeat
Next to You
Hammerhead
YGGFK
Kristy

I think its funny that Meaning of Life (which has its own Music Video and CD single) never charted

I thought that was odd, because it's prolly the best song on Ixnay, and thus one of the best offspring songs ever...
