Actress-turned-rocker Taylor Momsen and her group Pretty Reckless have made history in America by becoming the first female-fronted band to score number ones with their first two hits on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart.

The band’s “Messed Up World” hit the top spot on Thursday, almost six months after “Heaven Knows” reached number one on the countdown.

Only two other female-led bands, Halestorm and The Pretenders, have hit the top of the charts, and before Halestorm’s Freak Like Me reached number one last year, the last female to make her way to the top was Alannah Myles in 1990.
