'Heavy metal' band Metallica have swooped to the top of the US album chart with their first new release in six years, 'St. Anger'. It has sold the very scarily-large amount of 418,000 copies in its first week.
It seems that the Americans are currently likin' their rawk. Last week, Led Zeppelin were No.1, and the week before that it was Staind, and before that horrible band it was Marilyn Manson.
Meanwhile back here in the UK, Radiohead surprise nobody by getting their newie, 'Hail To The Thief', to No.1. It has sold, ooh, like loads of copies too.
The singles chart looks suitable horrible as usual with Evanescence staying put at the top slot, while poor ol' Darius only manages to get in at No.21, and "most worshipped band in the world" (according to some music magazine), AFI, show us that No.22 is the number you reach when you're that worshipped. Great.
