Chili Peppers storm albums

Busted have ended The Streets one week reign at the top of the UK single chart, bursting straight in today (August 1) at one with their theme to The Thunderbirds.

And the Red Hot Chili Peppers move Mike Skinner from pole position on the album chart with their ‘Live At Hyde Park; soaring into the top spot.

Back on the singles chart, Eminem and D12 score the second highest new entry, going in at four with ‘How Come’. In a quiet week, the only other entry on the top 20 comes from Jennifer Ellison, the soap-star turned reality TV show winner. Despite countless TV promo appearances, her single ‘Bye Bye Boy’ charts at a disappointing 13.

The Charlatans at 24, The Futureheads at 26, Mania at 29 and Graham Coxon at 32 are the only other new entries on the top 40.

Chili Peppers aside, there are no new entries on the album top 40. Rachel Stevens re-released ‘Funky Dory’ (13) and Usher’s debut ‘8701’ at 24 are the notable climbers.
