(TeamRock) Blink-182 hit the number one spot on the US and UK album charts in July with California - their first album to feature Matt Skiba. It's the first time they've reached the American top spot in 15 years, and first time ever in Britain.

Billboard reports that the US sales figures of 186,000 units mark the third-largest week for a rock album this year, and Blink's best-selling seven-day period since 2003.

Mark Hoppus last week told Spin: "I think people take Blink more seriously now than they did before. People wrote us off as this joke band - but the people who listened to Blink knew that we were silly and whatever, but we wrote songs about divorce and suicide and depression." Read more here.
