Linkin Park Debut At Top Of US Charts
Linkin Park have scored their fifth US #1 as their new album, "Living Things", debuts atop the Billboard 200 album chart. The band sold 223,000 copies of the new set, narrowly beating Maroon 5's "Overexposed" by just over 1,000 sales, according to Billboard. The two bands had a similarly close finish in the UK, where Linkin Park outsold Maroon 5 by 3,000 copies to earn its fourth UK #1 album. "Living Things" could mark the fifth chart-topper for Linkin Park, who also hit the No. 1 slot with 2003's "Meteora", 2004's "MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Collision Course" (with Jay-Z), 2007's "Minutes To Midnight" and 2010's "A Thousand Suns". Of the act's four previous studio efforts, the only one to miss the No. 1 slot was its debut, 2000's "Hybrid Theory", which peaked at No. 2. Linkin Park's last studio set, "A Thousand Suns", bowed atop the list with 241,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Linkin Park kick off a North American tour on August 11 in Bristow, VA.
