Wolfgang Van Halen’s solo debut track, “Distance,” which serves as a tribute to his father Eddie Van Halen, hit the top of the iTunes song chart shortly after its release.

Wolfgang shared a screenshot of the chart via social media writing, “#1 on @iTunes. Not just rock, but overall. I’m speechless. The response to Distance has been mind-blowing and I’m so thankful for each and every one of you. Know that the weight of this moment is not lost on me. Thank you. Wish you were here for this, Pop.”

Wolfgang unveiled “Distance” yesterday (November 16), which is released under the name Mammoth WVH, and is available for streaming/download here. Proceeds from the track will go to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which Wolfgang noted was one of his dad’s favorite charities.
