Rock tops the Billboard 200 chart this week

It may not happen as often as rock fans would like, but this week, rock ‘n’ roll rules the Billboard 200 chart. The latest album from Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters, “Concrete and Gold,” has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, pushing 127,000 equivalent album units, 120,000 of which were traditional album sales.

In addition to hitting No. 1 in the U.S., “Concrete and Gold” also debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. That makes “Concrete and Gold” the band’s second Billboard 200 record, the previous one being the band’s 2011 release, “Wasting Light.”

“Concrete and Gold” features the rock radio hits “Run” and “The Sky Is a Neighborhood” and features collaborations with Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men and Alison Mosshart of The Kills.

In other news, Foo Fighters will set off on a North American tour to promote “Concrete and Gold” with their own festival, Cal Jam 17 on Oct. 7 in San Bernardino, California.
