The Beatles have jumped to the head of class once again, sending the Backstreet Boys to send place in record sales on the latest Billboard charts. The titles of the albums Speak for themselves, The Beatles with No.1 leaves the Backstreet Boys’ Black & Blue. 

The latest offering from the Fab Four debuted at No. 1 on the charts three weeks ago, only to be outsold by the Backstreet Boys’ Black & Blue for the past two weeks. This week the Beatles sold more than 670,000 copies beating out the Backstreet Boys sales of 546,000 units. 

Elsewhere on the charts. 

The MTV friendly compilation “Now that’s what I call music Vol. 5” featuring singles from N Sync, Destiny’s Child and 3 Doors Down took the No. 3 spot with 383,000 units sold. 

Creed keeps selling and selling and selling. The 1999 sophomore effort from Creed, “Human Clay” came in at No. 4 with Britney Spears rounding out the Top 5 with her latest effort “Opps! … I Did It Again”. 

Rage Against the Machine’s “Renegades” debuted at No. 14, down from their chart-topping debut at No. 1 last November with “The Battle for Los Angeles”.
