30 July 2018 - UPDATE: Boom! Greta Van Fleet's popularity soared again! During the week of July 22–29, 2018, even more people in the U.S. searched for "greta van fleet" on Google.
When I first wrote this section—only 3 days ago—the band's April 2018 peak was "92", and the week of July 14–21 had become "100" on the Google Trends graph.
But as the data rolled into the Google brain, the line kept shooting up. So as of 30 July 2018:
April 1–7, 2018 peak = "75"
July 14–21, 2018 peak = "82"
July 22–29, 2018 peak = "100"
That's a dramatic increase in the number of people searching Google to learn more about Greta Van Fleet.

This graph (above) shows the number of "greta van fleet" searches on Google for the week of July 22-29 with a volcanic burst of interest around 22:00 (10:00 PM) on Thursday, 26 July 2018.
