The Pretty Reckless‘ latest number-one Billboard hit features some hard-rocking friends.

“Only Love Can Save Me Now,” the current single from Taylor Momsen and company, has hit the top of Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. The song features Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron, who now have their first number-one singles as “individually billed solo artists.”

Thayil and Cameron previously notched six number-one Mainstream Rock Airplay hits as members of Soundgarden. Fittingly, “Only Love Can Save Me Now” is The Pretty Reckless’ seventh leader on that particular chart, breaking a tie with one of Momsen’s musical heroes.

“Only Love Can Save Me Now” is featured on the new Pretty Reckless album Death by Rock and Roll, which dropped in February. Both of the record’s previous two singles, the title track and the Tom Morello-featuring “And So It Went,” also hit number one on Mainstream Rock Airplay.
