For the doubters, questioners or haters, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington at the vocal helm have effectively shut down any speculation about the validity or relevancy of the pairing, as their first single together has gone No. 1. That's right. 'Out of Time' has topped the Mediabase Active Rock and Mainstream Rock Charts.

The Bennington-fronted version of STP debuted in May at KROQ's Weenie Roast and they've never looked back. In fact, they've gone full steam ahead and have a flurry of exciting activity in their camp. The band remains hard at work on an EP to be released via its own label in the fall. They also kick off their tour on Sept. 4, with Filter onboard for many dates.

"We're really thankful to all the people listening to our music that made this happen," said bassist Robert DeLeo. "It feels great on so many levels."

Stone Temple Pilots have enjoyed several chart-toppers over the course of their two-decade career, which is overflowing with hits. 'Out of Time,' however, is their first No. 1 with Bennington.
