Skillet Holds Top Album by a Veteran Artist in the U.S. in a Very Slow Week

by VVN Music

It was an extremely slow week for veteran artists on the Billboard charts.

The top album by a veteran artists goes to Skillet and Unleashed for the second week even though it drops from 3 to 25.

In addition, even though there were fourteen debuts on the Billboard 200, none of them were by a veteran artist who has been recording for twenty years or more.

That leaves a long list of recent releases and hits collections holding the flag for veteran artists this week. Keith Urban's Ripcord still is doing well in its fifteenth week of release, coming in at 42 while Blink-182's latest, California, is at 52 after seven weeks. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have fallen off a bit faster with their The Getaway at 89 after nine weeks. Finally, Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool, which had a two phase release with digital coming a month before CD and Vinyl, is at 148 after fourteen weeks.
