Reader: Matchbox Twenty is one of the biggest bands ever

More No. 1 hits than anyone else
Interesting article [“The Mainstream Event,” February 6]. But just have to correct the inaccurate line about their hit single, "Unwell." It just didn't sound right to me since it was so huge on Hot AC for months and months. And the video won VH1's best video of the year... So I did a little Google search and came up with a Yahoo! Music article from 2003. Seems it was quite a smash hit – No. 1 for 12 weeks. Just wanted to set that straight. Saw their concert the other night and it was absolutely fantastic. Alanis Morrissette was great too. The band has now had more No. 1 hits and spent more weeks at No. 1 on both the modern AC and adult top 40 charts than any other artist in history, according to the BDS monitoring service.
