Somewhere Over 'In Rainbows': Radiohead Tops U.S. Charts
In the least suprising music news of the week, Radiohead continues their domination of the music sales charts. In Rainbows shot to No. 1 on the U.S. charts, just days after topping the UK charts, and months after dominating the music blogosphere and world o' pay-what-you-will downloads.
The band's seventh album was No. 1 on the week's music charts with sales of 122,000 copies, according Nielsen SoundScan figures released Wednesday. The physical, standard priced release sold fairly well even though Radiohead three months ago made a digital copy of the disc available for download on its Web site with optional pricing.
