The NME Chart has been hijacked by Vampire Weekend this week. The release of their album 'Contra' has pushed three tracks into the Top 20 (as we consider single album track purchases as valid), with the beserk afro-stomp of 'Cousins' knocking Ellie Goulding off her perch.

Elsewhere and people are still buying Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name'; it's sitting pretty at number seven. Kasabian are back in the chart with the re-released 'Vlad The Impaler'. NME Radio was playing the track almost a year ago, but have playlisted it for a week to reflect the physical release. Good Shoes and White Rabbits make up the other new entries this week.

Tune in to the new Top 40 countdown from 10am on Monday on NME Radio, and watch the Top 10 on NME TV every Tuesday and Wednesday at 9am and 6pm.
