Fall Out Boy Top the Charts

Fall Out Boy have the number one album in the country this week:

The set earned 130,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 25, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 117,000 were in traditional album sales. Mania is the group’s seventh full-length studio set and was released on Jan. 19 through Island Records. […] Mania performed particularly well with direct-to-consumer sales via Fall Out Boy’s official web store, and with vinyl LP sales. For the latter format, the album sold 13,000 copies — the biggest week for a vinyl album since the Sept. 30, 2017-dated list, when The National’s Sleep Well Beast bowed with 14,000 vinyl LPs.

This is the band’s fourth number one album.

Rock Is Alive — But You Might Not Know It When You Hear It

Pete Wentz, transcribed in Variety:

Today, you can’t necessarily think, “Rock music has to be this and it can’t be that.” We’re challenging the notion of what rock music can be. Listening to a playlist might mean going from a Beatles song into Twenty One Pilots into Lil Yachty. Kids are going to arenas to see Imagine Dragons and to hear those big songs. But they’re also checking out Bleachers and Jack Antonoff; he’s one of the biggest pop producers — one who clearly approaches songs as a kid in his bedroom listening to punk rock.
