Foo Fighters hit No. 1 in U.K.


Alternative American rock band the Foo Fighters charged straight to the top of the U.K. charts with their new album on Sunday, ending English soul singer Adele’s 11 week reign at No. 1.

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl’s group sailed in with “Wasting Light”, the Foo Fighters’ seventh studio album, giving the Grammy award-winning band their third No. 1 in the U.K.

Since their debut album in 1995, they have sold over 4.5 million albums in the U.K. alone, the Official Charts Company said.

Their dramatic entry knocked Adele’s “21” down to No. 2, while her other album “19” stayed at No. 3.

Glee Cast’s “Glee The Music Volume 5” entered at No. 4 and “Paper Airplane” by Alison Krauss & Union Station reached No. 11.
