Over the course of their 22-year recording career, the Manics have clocked up a staggering 33 consecutive Top 40 singles, which puts them ahead of such legendary artists as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Iron Maiden, as well as their peers Oasis, Blur, Coldplay and Stereophonics, and second only to Status Quo who hold the record for charting the highest amount of consecutive Top 40 singles by a British rock band.
