THIS WEEK’S SOUNDSCAN NUMBER REVEALED

40

Sorry for the lateness on this one, but MetalSucks once again has a reliable source for Soundscan charts (thanks dude, you know who you are) so these will be a regular feature again starting… now. Korn’s untitled record Untitled makes a big splash with its debut, while most everything else is business as usual in the hard rock / metal world (Linkin Suck, Nickelsuck, etc). Click through for chart positions and sales figures.

#2: Korn, Untitled
This week: 123,142 (debut)

Not bad. Hard to see it getting to even gold status with that number, though.

#10: Linkin Park, Minutes to Midnight
This Week: 43,607
Cume: 1,488,317

Jesus fucking H., enough already. When will this madness end?

#14: Nickelback, All the Right Reasons
This Week: 36,210
Cume: 5,706,391

See Linkin Park, above.

#24: White Stripes, Icky Thump
This Week: 24,784
Cume: 499,426

We don’t normally cover these guys, but damn, that is a respectable number for 7 weeks on the chart.

#29: Smashing Pumpkins, Zeitgeist
This Week: 20,491
Cume: 233,469

#48: Devildriver, The Last Kind Words
This Week: 14,270 (debut)

Gee, think the fact that this record was released in Europe over a month ago hurt sales at all? Hmmm…

#49: Velvet Revolver, Libertad
This Week: 14,147
Cume: 182,396

#72: Flyleaf, Flyleaf
This Week: 10,161

#85: Finger 11, Them Vs. You Vs. Me
This Week: 9,329
Cume: 147,265

22 weeks on the chart already and this record is somehow rising two weeks in a row?

#89: Ozzy Osbourne, Black Rain
