Maroon 5 remain at number two with Moves Like Jagger, and in third place are the Goo Goo Dolls after they rocketed from 120 to three with Iris.

In the album chart, the only other new release in the top 10 was Blink 182.

Neighborhoods, at number six this week, was the US rock band's sixth album.

Kasabian's album Velociraptor! fell one place this week to number two and Ed Sheeran's +, which had also topped the chart, was at number three.

In its 36th week, Adele's 21 was at number four, followed by Nirvana's Nevermind.
