Notes:

"Waking The Dead" doesn’t make much noise with 1,620 units scanned first week. I wonder if Andy Johns gets points on this record.

Murderdolls debut at #102 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Heatseekers Chart.

"Social Intercourse" scans 81 this week, down slightly from a big 84 the previous week.

Def Leppard scans drop from 16,955 to 13,091 this week, good enough for #88.
