Foo Fighters Earn First No. 1 Album with ‘Wasting Light’


Billboard forecasted last week that the Foo Fighters would make it to number one this time around, and they did!

The Foo Fighters Wasting Light debuts at No. 1 with 235,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The start is the band’s second-largest sales week — trumped only by the No. 2 launch of “In Your Honor” in 2005, which began with 311,000.

Only because of the Foo’s pushing her, Adele’s 21 bows to No. 2 even though she had a 5% sales increase.

Coming in at No. 3 is Alison Krauss and Union Station’s “Paper Airplane,” selling 83,000.

The rest of the top 10 looks like this:

  • No. 4 – Paul Simon’s “So Beautiful Or So What”
  • No. 5 – Mana’s “Drama y Luz”
  • No. 6 – Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale”
  • No. 7 – “Songs For Japan” charity compilation
  • No. 8 – Wiz Khalifa’s “Rolling Papers”
  • No. 9 – Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E.”
  • No. 10 – Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More”

What do you think of the Foo’s accomplishment with Wasting Light?!
