[List] What's The "Heaviest" Song To Ever Top The Billboard Charts?
I would nominate "Black Hole Sun"
despite not being a Metal song, I would argue this is heavier than any & every chart-topping hit that came out of the "Hair Metal" era (and I'm including Guns 'n Roses in there as well). According to wiki, Black Hole Sun spent seven weeks at number one and finished as the number-one track of 1994 (which is crazy considering how dark & heavy it is).
I couldn't imagine a song like this gaining traction in the most mainstream of music charts in any era other than the 90's....the 90's was just built different I guess.
