Oh my g... same scenario like three weeks ago. Amy MacDonalds debuted 'only' at #2 while a boring national act debuted at #1. Now the same thing with LP... :x

Was it expected? I mean Die Toten Hosen have been in the upper part of the Singles Chart for ages now :-? ... And as much as I don't like Burn It Down, it's time that people get over Tage Wie Diese (funnily it's the first German No.-1 in 2.5 years and it directly turns in such a huge hit).

What can we expect from the album's sales in Germany? 60k?

Tage Wie Diese dropped like a rock after Germany's lose in the Uefa EM last week. So i don't expect it to stay longer at number 1... Maybe a last week next week? It's the end now.

I don't expect Burn It Down to hit the top spot too, because it also dropped a little bit (Still combined at number 5 on Itunes...) as Germany lost and got kicked out from the semi finals.

Oh and about LV's sales? I don't know ;).

That's not too bad considering A Thousand Suns also "only" debuted at No. 3 in Spain... In fact they never had a No.-1-album there :o .

Billboard

As projected last week, Linkin Park debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with its new album, "Living Things," ahead of the also-debuting "Overexposed" by Maroon 5 at No. 2.

However, the race for No. 1 turned out to be much closer than initially expected. Linkin Park starts with 223,000 while Maroon 5 enters with 222,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan. A little over 1,000 copies sold separates the two titles -- the smallest gap between Nos. 1 and 2 on the chart since the Dec. 11, 2011 tally.
That week, the gap was less than 1,000 between the top two rungs. Nickelback's "Here and Now" debuted at No. 2 with just under 227,000, while Michael Buble's "Christmas" rose 2-1 with a little more than 227,000.

Linkin Park's "Living Things" secures the band its fifth No. 1 on the chart. In the span of time since 2000 -- when Linkin Park debuted on the Billboard 200 -- no other band has had more No. 1 albums.

Linkin Park's previous studio effort, "A Thousand Suns," was released in 2010 and also bowed at No. 1 -- with 241,000. Of the act's five studio releases, all but its first reached No. 1. That album, 2000's "Hybrid Theory," peaked at No. 2 for four nonconsecutive weeks in early 2002. Though it never hit No. 1, "Hybrid Theory" did finish 2001 as that year's top selling album.

In addition to four No. 1 studio sets, Linkin Park also earned a No. 1 album with its Jay-Z collaboration effort "MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Collision Course."

Whoa, that was certainly closer than anticipated! Congrats to Linkin Park on the (narrow) victory. I'm pleased to see them doing so well worldwide too. :D
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.
