The Strokes Stay on top

'12:51' stays strong...

The Strokes have held onto the top of the NME CHART for a second consecutive week.

The unofficial bootleg video for ‘12:51’, showing Julian and the boys knocking about the studio, holds off an advance from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club who sit at two with ‘We’re All In Love’. The Distillers enter at three with ‘Drain The Blood’ while Kings Of Leon slide to four with ‘Wasting Time’.

The Darkness remain in the top 10 holding firm at five with ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ as do Funeral For A Friend, at six with ‘Bullet Theory’.

As ever, the NME Chart has been voted for by you. The rundown is hosted by Zane Lowe and broadcast every day on MTV2 at 7pm. To control next week’s countdown, log on to www.nmechart.com.
