Green Day also continue a steady climb up the chart, up from No3 to No2 this week with 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams'. Gwen Stefani's first solo single 'What You Waiting For?' is up to No3 from No5, followed at No4 by last week's No1 - Band Aid 20's 'Do They Know It's Christmas. This week's sole Top 20 new entry is Iron Maiden's 'The Number Of The Beast' at No11, 23 years after it was first released in May 1982.
