Queens of the Stone Age Get Their Third Top Five Album in the U.S.; Savoy Brown Tops the Blues Albums Chart

by VVN Music

The Queens of the Stone Age have gotten their third top five album with Villains.

The band first reached that height in 2005 when Lullabies to Paralyze went to number 5 followed by their 2013 chart topper ...Like Clockwork.

Villains was also the top selling album of the week but fell to third when streaming was added to the equation. It also tops the Vinyl, Independent, Tastemakers and Rock Albums charts.

Last week, only two albums by veteran artists debuted on the Billboard 200 and, now, this week there is only one, the Queens of the Stone Age album.  The rest of the chart is filled with Greatest Hits sets and catalog titles with only a few current releases.
