Madness achieved most of their success in the early to mid-1980s. Both Madness and UB40 spent 214 weeks on the UK singles charts over the course of the decade, holding the record for most weeks spent by a group in the 1980s UK singles charts. However, Madness achieved this in a shorter time period (1980-1986).
Madness have had only one UK number one single, with "House of Fun"; but, they have had two number ones in Ireland, namely "House of Fun" and "Wings of a Dove".
