The latest Attack on Titan opening song “The Rumbling” by SiM has reached the top of Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs chart. The TV Size version of the song came out earlier this month, along with the release of Attack on Titan’s 76th episode, while the full version is set for February 7 release.
The official upload of the opening, which contains the TV Size version of the song, currently has over 28 million views on YouTube. The band tweeted earlier this week, saying that the song also surpassed 20 million streams.
