Queens of the Stone Age: ... Like Clockwork

"It was a good week for the rock and country genres, as five of the Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 came from rock bands of various flavors and three belonged to country singers. Queens of the Stone Age earned its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 on Wednesday, as their latest disc '… Like Clockwork' (Matador) sold 91,000 copies in its first week, Nielsen SoundScan reported on Wednesday. The band, a five-piece rock outfit from Palm Desert, Calif., led by Josh Homme, has never before topped the chart, though it has put out six other albums. Mr. Homme’s group bumped Daft Punk’s 'Random Access Memories' (Daft Lite/Columbia) from the top slot, where it has been for two weeks, pushing it to No. 2" (James C. McKinley Jr., "Queens of the Stone Age Earns Its First No. 1," New York Times, 6/12/13).
