THIS WEEK’S SOUNDSCAN NUMBERS REVEALED

0

Unless you live in a cave, you know that Kanye West, 50 Cent, and Kenny Chesney dominated the top 3 Soundscan spots with stellar debuts. In news that you people actually will care about, Indiana’s own ICED EARTH had an unexpectedly strong debut (for them) to land at #78, while As I Lay Sucking and Every Time I Suck dropped precipitously, as predicted. Chart positions, sales numbers, and plenty of creative ways to insert “suck” into a band’s name, after the jump.

#7: Nickelback – All the Right Reasons
This Week: 34,940
Cume: 5,928,712

#11: Linkin Park – Minutes to Midnight
This Week: 29,614
Cume: 1,687,705

I am so fucking sick of having to think of witty things to say about these two. Can we just declare a moratorium and say to hell with these pieces of shit?

#42: Chiodos – Bone Palace Ballet
This Week: 14,309
Cume: 53,276

He said “bone.” Huh huh, huh huh, huh.

#51: Atreyu – Lead Sails Paper Anchor
This Week: 11,470
Cume: 72,770

Hey Hollywood Records, say it with me now: “Not Recouping.” Got it?

#53: Korn – Untitled
This Week: 10,764
Cume Week: 257,395

I have a title; how about “suck?”

#58: White Stripes – Icky Thump
This Week: 10,260
Cume: 587,030

#61: Flyleaf – Flyleaf
This Week: 9,402
Cume: 722,017

#69: Three Days Grace – One-X
This Week: 8,918
Cume: 886,006

#72: Finger Eleven – Them Vs. You Vs. Me
This Week: 8,428
Cume: 203,901

Finally a drop in the charts after a mysterious rise back on, months after the initial album release. Don’t think one good single can sell a record? Look no further.

#73: As I Lay Dying – An Ocean Between Us
This Week: 8,388
Cume: 77,133

#78: Iced Earth – Framing Armageddon: Something Wicked Part 1
This Week: 7791 (debut)

Whould’ve thunk it? We completely missed the boat on covering this album at all. Shame on us.

#89: Hinder – Extreme Behavior
This Week: 6,927
Cume: 2,543,366

#94: Smashing Pumpkins – Zeitgeist
This Week: 6,294
Cume: 292,859

Frankly I’m surprised it’s stuck around even this long.
