Broken Social Scene is anything but broken up by the debut of their latest album on the Canadian charts.

The Toronto-based indie heroes' new effort "Forgiveness Rock Record" came in at No. 1 with 7,100 in sales, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

They edged out American rockers Godsmack, whose album "The Oracle" premiered at No. 2, selling 7,000.

The movement up top forced Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" (6,800) down one spot to No. 3, and AC/DC's soundtrack to "Iron Man 2," which was No. 1 last week, sank to No. 4.

Two more debuts checked into the top 10, with Lady Gaga's "The Remix CD" at No. 5, and Court Yard Hounds' self-titled disc at No, 6, while Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0" lost a little bit of its chart power, sinking from No. 3 to No. 7.

Rounding out the top 10 was Gilles Vigneault's "Retrouvailles" at No. 8, Nikki Yanofsky's "Nikki" at No. 9, and the Deftones' "Diamond Eyes" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Godsmack came in first, followed by Lady Antebellum in second, MercyMe's "The Generous Mr. Lovewell" in third, Carole King and James Taylor's "Live at the Troubadour" in fourth, and Justin Bieber in fifth.
