It was a tough week for the rock world in terms of record sales. The only notable debut was 12 Stones who landed in the #53 spot and are surely headed out of the Top 100 next week. Ouch. Click through for this week’s Soundscan chart positions and sales numbers.

Cume: 1,565,315

Will it EVER end with these two?

Title me not giving a shit about this band or this album.

Up the chart AGAIN for the 4th week in a row, 24 weeks after its release and long after it left the Top 100! Amazing. Kudos to the Canadians. Please share your secrets for success with us silly Americans. And your kick-ass healthcare system, too.

People seem to have gotten their fill of this band. It was great at first but now the sheen has worn off. As my good friend Axl said, I see these guys pulling an Audioslave and going back to other projects as soon as their record deal ends.
