Marilyn Manson Goes To No. 1
This was a modest jump for Manson from the first week sales of his last studio album, “Holy Wood: In the Valley of the Shadow of Death,” which moved 117,000 copies it’s first week.
Elsewhere on the charts, Manson kept 50 Cent out of the No. 1 spot. “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” lands at No. 2 with sales of 106,000 units. Cold comes in third with a triumphant return with their new CD “Year of the Spider” enjoying first week sales of 101,000 units.
Third Eye Blind’s new one “Out of the Vein” sold 63,000 units debuting on the charts at No. 12.
Manson will face stiff competition this week from Staind’s new album “14 Shades of Grey”. That group’s last album enjoyed first week sales of 716,000 copies.
