The Charts

'Astro'logy

This week on the music charts

Why, you may ask, is Astro-Creep worthy of mention this week? Well, because the fact that White Zombie stays in the pop top 10 for another week seems much more striking than the fact that everyone else does, too. Most observers (including EW) had predicted that the comic metal group, which also tops the hard music chart, would quickly drop down the pop list after its core fans snapped up the disc its first week. The rise of the Friday soundtrack to No. 1, on the other hand, makes much more sense: The Ice Cube starrer opened last week, debuting at No. 2 at the box office.
