by The Charts

Another weekly chart courtesy of our friends at We'll be bringing you a weekly update on the most popular albums of the past week, and of the past year as determined by sales in that store. We thought it would be a good way to see what people are listening to within our community; whether it be punk, hardcore, emo, ska or whatever.

This week, four longtime bands dominated the charts with new albums from Catch 22, Good Riddance, Dashboard Confessional and the Aquabats dominating the top five for last week. Canadian act Billy Talent also had a strong opening with their sophomore full length, Billy Talent II. Rise Against's new album quickly jumped to the top three, though did not displace perennial winners Anti-Flag, nor unseat AFI's Decemberunderground.
