Dylan has placed on a Billboard chart before. His iconic "Like a Rolling Stone" hit No. 2 on the genre-encompassing Billboard Hot 100 back in September 1965, as did "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35" in May 1966. But he's never reached No. 1 on any individual genre chart until now.
Billboard also noted that Dylan flirted with some chart-topping success when three of his songs with The Traveling Wilburys ("Handle With Care," "End of the Line" and "She's My Baby), all reached No. 2 on the Mainstream Rock Songs charts back in the 1980s and '90s. His songs also reached No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart with Peter Paul & Mary's "Blowin' in the Wind" cover and The Byrds' version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" topping the Hot 100 back in June 1965.
