Favourite Worst Nightmare charts at Number 1!

Postby arctic » Sun Apr 29, 2007 9:06 pm

The Arctic Monkeys second album "Favourite Worst Nightmare" has charted in the UK album charts straight in at Number 1 beating Mark Ronson and Avril Lavigne off the top spot.

The album managed to sell a whopping 85,000 copies on its first day of sale but the final week's sales are yet to be confirmed.

The band have also scored a large number of top singles, with the whole of Favourite Worst Nightmare in the top 200.

A number of other tracks have also charted and if predictions are proven to be correct, the band will have 18 songs in the top 200 after renewed interest in their debut.

Current single Brianstorm charted at number seven after making it to number two last week.

Hopefully more than 300 000 copies. That's my wish.

Yeah I know, off the top of my head I don't know the sales to date.
I think it was around (just over) 1,000,000 or something like that in 2006.
