Avenged Sevenfold Knock Eminem Off Top Spot on Hot 200


The rock album 'Nightmare' sells 163,000 copies in its opening week, while the rap effort 'Recovery' adds 159,000 units in its sixth week on sale.

This week, Billboard Hot 200 has a new champion, Avenged Sevenfold. The four-piece rock band beat Eminem from the the first position with "Nightmare", their latest album and first set since member The Rev passed away in December last year.

"Nightmare" arrives on the U.S. albums chart with 163,000 copies, while the Slim Shady's "Recovery", which ruled the list for five consecutive weeks, has to give up its top position since it adds only 159,000 units. The rap album is forced to fall one slot to the runner-up place.

There is no other new entry this week despite the high debut of the M. Shadows-fronted group. Tech N9ne can only bow at No. 13 with "The Gates Mixed Plate" which sells 17,000 copies. Fat Joe's "The Darkside Vol.1" which was speculated by his nemesis 50 Cent to pull in 5,000 units, manages to garner 12,000 copies and sit at No. 27.

Back on the Top 10, the rest of the sleepy chart are secured by Rick Ross' "Teflon Don" which drops one slot to the third place, Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0" which moves two spots to No. 4 and Drake's "Thank Me Later" which falls to the fifth place. The latest edition of "Kidz Bop Kids" series sits at No. 6, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" secures No. 7, Sheryl Crow's "100 Miles From Memphis" is pushed from No. 3 to No. 8, Lady GaGa's "The Fame" takes the ninth spot, and "Now 34" compilation rounds up the Top 10.
