STROKES, SOUNDGARDEN, GREEN DAY, OTHERS MAKE CHART DEBUTS
The new album from the Strokes, Angles, debuted at Number Four on the Billboard album chart on Wednesday (March 30th), selling 89,000 copies in its first week of release. The disc was the third straight effort from the New York band to debut at Number Four on the chart, following 2003's Room On Fire and 2006's First Impressions Of Earth. The band's 2001 debut, Is This It, never got higher than Number 33 on the chart.
