The Foo Fighters have joined a club of exclusive #1 chart phenoms. They hold the #1 spot for a 5th week in a row with their single "Rope", the first from the album Wasting Light. What puts the Foo Fighters in good company here is the fact that they belong to a growing group of artists who held the #1 spot for more than 4 weeks this year. Among the other artists who have held on to #1 for 5 weeks (or more) are Martin Solveig & Dragonette with "Hello" @ 5 weeks, Dengue Fever with "Cement Slippers" also at 5 weeks and Katy Perrywho held the top spot for 6 weeks this summer with "Last Friday Night (TGIF)."

The fact that so many artists have held on to the top spot this week has had a limiting effect on who spent time at #1 this year. We had several songs peak at #2 only to fall away in the next week. That may be the fate ofOneRepublic's "Good Life" which holds at #2 for a 2nd week.
Moving up 5 from #8 to #3 is Coldplay as their latest single "Paradise" nears the top the week their latest album Mylo Xyloto is set to be released. Will Coldplay knock the Foo Fighters out of #1? Come back next week.

Other movers this week include Zee Avi who inches up another 2 spots from #10 to #8 this week with "The Book Of Morris Johnson," a great single from her latest album Ghost. Moving up 4 points from #18 to #14 this week we find Florence + The Machine with "What the Water Gave Me."

Two songs making their debut on the top 20 include "Not Over You" by Gavin DeGraw at #19 and "We Found Love", a dance track by Rihanna at #20.
