‘The Final Countdown’ Reaches #1 On The Billboard Charts After 30 Years

Europe’sThe Final Countdown” has reached #1 on the Billboard charts after nearly 30 years after its release.

The classic rock song hit #1 from Billboard’s Top Commercials chart, which uses streams, downloads, and Shazam tags to determine the popularity of songs being used in current ad campaigns. It has hit #1 in over a dozen countries.

As the report notes, “The Final Countdown” was a huge hit in many parts of the world, hitting No. 1 in over a dozen countries, but this marks the first time it’s earned the top spot on a Billboard chart.

The song owes it success to the cleaver advertisement of Geico Insurance Company who used the song with its famous lizard. With its tongue-and-cheek humor the commercial shot the song to #1.
