Emo boys knock Maximo off the top

Panic! At The Disco’s ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ has topped the NME Chart, knocking Maximo Park’s ‘I Want You To Stay’ off the top spot.

There were 2 new entries in the chart – goth rockers Placebo return after a 2 year absence at number 3 with ‘Because I Want You’ while hotly tipped Nashville teens Be Your Own Pet enter the chart at number 6 with the MTV2 exclusive ‘Adventure’.
