Rockers Dominate Billboard Charts

Maybe Chris Daughtry is coming to "American Idol" at just the right time. After years of being dominated by hip-hop and pop and even a little country, the album charts are suddenly awash again in rock and roll. The top three CDs on Billboard are all debuts and they're all rockers. And the planets aren't just aligning for "Idol"s frontrunner: Andrea Bocelli's appearance on the show gave his album a giant boost as well, jumping from #25 to #10. Here's the list:

1. Godsmack -- IV
2. Taking Back Sunday -- Louder Now
3. Bruce Springsteen -- We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions
4. Avant -- Director
5. Rihanna -- A Girl Like Me
6. Rascal Flatts -- Me and My Gang
7. Various -- High School Musical
8. Various -- Now That's What I Call Music Vol. 21
9. Goo Goo Dolls -- Let Love In
10. Andrea Bocelli -- Amore.
