Attack on Titan‘s new opening song for Season 4 Part 2 is already breaking records. “The Rumbling” by SiM rose the ranks quickly on U.S. billboard charts and hit #1 on the hard rock chart. Read on to learn more, along with when the song’s full version will finally release.
The Short Version of ‘Rumbling’ Hit Number 1 on the Hard Rock Chart
While the song is no longer number one (having been replaced by Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love” at the time this article was published), it hit number one not long after it was released, according to Anime News Network. The opening theme was first released on January 22, where it debuted at #3 on the hard rock chart. By January 30, it was already at #1 on the hard rock chart in the U.S.
In the first week that the song was released on music streaming platforms, it already had 10 million plays. The official YouTube video has more than 31 million views as of the time of this story’s publication.
What’s most fascinating about this song’s success is that it’s the short version of the song that’s topped the charts. The full version of the song hasn’t even released yet.
The band SiM performs the new song. According to Wikipedia, SiM stands for Silence iz Mine, and it’s a Japanese alternative metal band.
They also did the opening to Rage of Bahamut: Genesis.
When Does the Full Version Release?
If you’re looking forward to the full-length version of the song, you don’t have much longer to wait. SiM announced that it is releasing on February 7, 2022.
