Sum 41’s ‘Hero’ debuts at No. 1

This is the first album they made without the guitarist Dave Baksh. They are doing fine in the U.S. where they are at No. 7, selling 45,000 copies.

Back in the U.S., “NOW 25” stayed at No. 1, followed by the “Hairspray” soundtrack” in second, Prince in third, the “Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus” in fourth, and T.I.’s “T.I. vs. T.I.P.” in fifth. The charts have few resemblings.

The people from Canada mostly have charts which resemble the charts from the european continent so it remains to be found out how big the Sum 41 impact is bound to be.
