The rockers’ seventh studio effort, "Wasting Light," led by the hit single "Rope," debuted at No. 1 with healthy sales of 21,000, according to Neilsen SoundScan numbers.

It marks the second album in a row to come in on top for the Foos here. Their previous disc, "Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace" managed the same feat back in 2007, with similar numbers - 22,000.
