Linkin Park and Bieber battle it out to rule supreme over worst week in music, ever
COULD we be in the middle of the worst week in music ever? You may be able to think of other lousy periods in music history, but this one looks unbeatable. Want the evidence? Let us look at the chart.
Apparently, Linkin Park’s fifth studio album Living Things has topped the midweek album chart, ousting Justin Bieber from his lofty position. Linkin Park (pictured). Justin Bieber. It’s like choosing between Hepatitis B or C.
Not only that, these two things are jostling with the morosely awful Maroon 5 as well. And it doesn’t even come close to ending there as other new entries and chart-botherers include Flo Rida, Ginger from the Wildhearts and, worst of all, The Levellers have a new single out called ‘Static On The Airwaves’ which is looking like going top 20.
To really bring home the steady vomiting, The Offspring’s latest album Days Go By is out too as well as Jedward’s Young Love.
In the singles chart, will.i.am is set for his first solo number one with This Is Love and wife-beaty Chris Brown’s Don’t Wake Me Up is the second highest new entry midweek.
We can only hope that, after all this, humans start to evolve without ears because, on the strength of that lot, we absolutely don’t need them anymore.
