    Also note: Hybrid Theory was released in the United States on October 24, 2000 following radio airplay of "One Step Closer". It entered the U.S. Billboard 200 charts at #16 in late 2000 and only reached the top ten in its 38th week on the chart and stayed in the top ten for 34 weeks. What kinda SLEEPER ALBUM SMASH?! To think Hybrid Theory only peaked at #2, "In The End" did too much [​IMG]

    Adele coming for HT's spot though :rofl:

    How odd, the last time I saw numbers HT was in #2 behind the Beatles. Is this US or worldwide?

    Also, I only respect 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin being up so high because it came out pretty much the following week after Meteora did and never let Meteora have the top spot again.

    I think this just American because I know Hybrid Theory sold more than 9 million.

    Thanks for the info Ignite! We appreciate your determination. :3

    I still believe that Adele will take over HT's spot :lol: It's ok, Adele's album deserves its recognition.
