On the page titled Billboard’s Hot 100 Achievements is the following bulleted item (towards the end of the page):
- “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses (1992) stands as the longest-running song to reach the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100, at a length of 8:55.
This information is still true, but you may also want to consider adding a note about the single with the longest running time in the entire history of the Hot 100 chart. That record was set just last year, when the single “Fear Inoculum” by the hard rock band Tool both debuted and peaked at No. 93 on the chart (on the week ending 17 August 2019), spending just one week on the chart. Its total running time is 10 minutes and 21 seconds (10:21). The previous record was set in early 2016 following David Bowie’s death, because his single “Blackstar” both debuted and peaked at No. 78 on the Hot 100 chart (on the week ending 30 January 2016), and it also spent only one week on the chart. The total time length of “Blackstar” is 9 minutes and 57 seconds (9:57).
