(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake, Paramore and now Fall Out Boy at the top of the charts? Are we sure it's 2013? For five straight weeks, the Billboard 200 album chart has experienced an onslaught of artists who held major relevance in the mid-2000s, particularly 2006 and 2007, followed by a period of lessened popularity and/or eventual inactivity.

Prior to Timberlake's three-week reign, the No.1 album in the country belonged to Bon Jovi, a band that admittedly held more sway in its earlier days but still connected with 2005′s "Who Says You Can't Go Home" and the 2007 album Lost Highway.

This week, Fall Out Boy took the top spot in America with its big comeback album, Save Rock & Roll, which debuts at No. 1 with 153,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The band beats out its closest competitor, Kid Cudi, by almost 20,000 copies, as the rapper's Indicud slots in second.

Rewind to February 2007. That month, Fall Out Boy went to the top of the charts with the band's third album, Infinity on High, buoyed by big singles "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race" and "Thnks fr th Mmrs" and the strong performance of its previous album, From Under the Cork Tree, which put the band on the map in 2005 and 2006. more on this story
