Linkin Park dominate official UK Rock Charts

Hey all,

I just thought this may interest some of you. Linkin Park dominate the official UK Rock Charts top 40 (singles) with 5 entries in the top 10:-

#2 Rolling in the Deep
#5 Iridescent
#6 What I've Done
#8 Numb
and
#10 New Divide

With Crawling and Bleed it Out at #27 and #40

I also had a look at the official Album Charts and the band has 5 entries in the top 40:-

#4 A Thousand Suns
#7 Hybrid Theory
#18 iTunes Festival EP
#19 Minutes To Midnight
and
#28 Meteora

As a UK citizen it's pleasing to see that ATS is still going strong in the charts. It is also impressive to see HT still selling strong even after 425 weeks* in the chart. Only Metallica's "Metallica" has been in the charts for longer (519 weeks*) and is positioned at #8, one place below HT.

*I can only assume that time periods are from when the album/single last entered the top 40 as Crawling has been in the singles top 40 for 2 weeks. So with that in mind, HT has not dropped out the top 40 for 425 weeks! That's approximately 8 years!
