Radiohead's long awaited new CD has captured the top spot on Billboards Top 200 Chart this week. The new CD "KID A" debuted at no. 1 having sold over 200,000 in its first week of release. They also captured the top spot on the English, French and Canadian charts as well as the Internet sales charts. 

A few UK fans got an added bonus with their copies of KID A. The first pressing of the CD released in the UK contained a booklet that blasted Prime Minister Tony Blair over his tax policies. 

The band kicked off their supporting tour of "KID A" in New York Wednesday night (Oct 11th) to a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden in NYC. The band also has shows scheduled for Toronto (10/17) and Los Angeles (10/20). 

Elsewhere on the charts, Greenday returned with their new CD "Warning" which debuted at no. 4 on the Billboard chart. Madonna's "Music" dropped three spots to no. 6 and 98 degrees dropped from the second spot to the fifth.  Paul Simon and Yanni also landed new releases on the Top 20 this week with the Dixie Chicks climbing 20 spots from 46 last week to no. 26 this week with their CD "Fly".
