Mumford & Sons, Green Day And No Doubt Take Top Three Spots On Billboard 200
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.03.2012



Mumford & Sons, Green Day and No Doubt all had big debuts on the Billboard 200 this week, coming in at the top three positions.

Mumford & Sons' second album Babel sold 600,000, which is the biggest debut this year and the largest sales week for RED Distribution ever. It's also the second highest week for an independently-distributed album. With 420,000 downloads sold, it's the second largest week for a digital album, behind only Lady Gaga's 2011 hit Born This Way, which debuted with 662,000 downloads.

Green Day's Uno comes in at #2, selling 139,000 copies. It is their eighth top ten album and fifth to hit the top two. Their last album, 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, debuted at #1 with 215,000, although the album was released on a Friday to be closer to the worldwide release, resulting in a shorter sales week.

No Doubt take #3 with Push and Shove, which debuted with 115,000. This is the first album for the band since 2001's Rock Steady, which debuted and peaked at #9 with 255,000 copies. It's best sales week was the next week with 270,000 during Christmas shopping time.

Lupe Fiasco gets #5 with his new album, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 selling 89,000 copies. His last album was 2011's Lasers, which debuted at #1 with 204,000.

Finally, Deadmau5 gets his highest charting album ever. Album Title Goes Here debuted at #6 with 58,000. His best sales week before this was 2010's 4x4=12, which debuted at #47 (its peak) with 27,000.

1. Mumford & Sons - Babel (600,000)
2. Green Day - Uno (139,000)
3. No Doubt - Push and Shove (115,000)
4. Punk - The Truth About Love (94,000)
5. Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (89,000)
6. Deadmau5 - Album Title Goes Here (58,000)
7. GOOD Music - Cruel Summer (55,000)
8. Dave Matthews Band - Away From The World (36,000)
9. Little Big Town - Tornado (34,000)
10. The Killers - Battle Born (31,000)

Overall album sales totaled 5.71 million, up 5% compared to last week (5.42 million) and up 2% compared to last year (5.57 million). Year-to-date album sales stand at 218.43 million, down 4% compared with the same total at this point last year (228.50 million).
