Slightly Stoopied CoverIt’s the long-running band’s highest charting album on the Billboard charts. Top of the World also debuted on Billboard’s Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts with a final position of No. 4. Helping power the band’s march up the charts is a loyal fan base that has come out in droves to support the band as they heat up the summer on the Unity Tour 2012 with 311.  Meanwhile, a radio version of the album’s title track recently became a popular addition to radio playlists nationwide, including tastemakers KROQ (Los Angeles,) 91X (San Diego) and SF’s Live 105.
