AC/DC have returned to the top of the U.K. album chart with a little help from Iron Man. The group's "Iron Man 2" soundtrack has beaten Paul Weller to the top spot and the rockers are well on course to end Lady GaGa's run at the top of the European album charts.

"Iron Man 2 - Official Soundtrack" is only AC/DC's third chart topper in the U.K. Weller's "Wake Up the Nation" debuted at two on the new countdown, with Meat Loaf's new album "Hang Cool Teddy Bear" entering the chart at four.

Meanwhile, Diana Vickers' "Once" tops the new singles chart in the U.K., ahead of "OMG" by Usher.

The sale of "Iron Man 2" soundtrack could boost the sale of the movie's tickets as well. Starring Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke as the hero and the villain respectively, the film is heading to theaters starting May 7.
