Hot Fuss Kills the Competition

21/Jan/2005

After 32 weeks in the Top 75 Albums Chart since release back in June last year, The Killers 'Hot Fuss' finally hits the top spot, up from No2 last week.


Green Day drop one place to No2 with 'American Idiot', ahead of Scissor Sisters at No3 (up from No5) and Paddy Casey's 'Living' at No4 (down from No3). For a 6th consecutive week there are no new titles debuting in the Top 40. Jay-Z and Linkin Park's 'Numb/Encore' holds at No1 on the Singles Chart for a third week, still maintaining a comfortable sales lead over all challengers: Gwen Stefani's 'What You Waiting For?' at No2 and Green Day's 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' at No3 (both non-movers from last week). Ciara has this week's highest new entry at No4 with 'Goodies' and the Chemical Brothers have the next new entry at No6 with 'Galvanize'. As well as claiming the Album Chart honours, The Killers have this week's highest climber on the Singles Chart with 'Somebody Told Me', up 17 places from No26 to No9.
