Imagine a Westlife-free world, a national Leona-free chart with Chipmunk chipped off, The xx marking the spot where JLS used to be, and Gaga and Miley burnt on a bonfire of pop pap lit by Jordin Sparks - a ringtones-devoid countdown of, y'know, good tunes?

That just happened. Today marks the first NME Chart as we reclaim the Top 40 and count down the biggest selling tracks in the NME world.

Every Monday from 10am, NME Radio will be counting down the Top 30, then at midday NME.COM will announce the Top 40 right here.

To watch the videos all you need to do is turn to Sky Channel 382 as NME TV reveal the Top 10 every Tuesday and Wednesday at 9am and 6pm, and the Top 40 every Saturday at 4 and Sunday at 8.

This week sees The Temper Trap consolidate their festival success and an excellent NME Radio session by reaching the upper echelons. It's a good week for Florence and The Big Pink too, and it's great to see Miike Snow with two different entries in the Top 40. Comment your thoughts below and come back next week to see who's climbing and who's dropping...

The NME Chart is compiled on a weekly basis from the sales of physical and digital singles through traditional high street retailers and digital music service providers. Tracks are eligible for the NME Chart if they have featured on the playlists of NME Radio or TV, or in NME magazine.
