"Madness" chart debuts in the USA:

#10 Alternative (Mediabase) ranked by first week audience

#12 Alternative (Mediabase) ranked by first week spins

#27 Triple A (Mediabase)

It is also debuted at #35 on the Official UK Top Singles chart.

Billboard will release their charts later this week. It is possible "Madness" will debut in the top ten on the Alternative and Rock Songs charts. It will also debut high on the three digital songs charts and the Triple A airplay chart and has a chance to debut on the Hot 100 chart. A song must sell 30-40k downloads and reach an audience of 15 million or some combination of these two criteria to make a bow on the Hot 100.

According to Nielsen Soundscan, "Survival" has sold 40k downloads in the USA while TR has sold over 740k copies. The Muse album catalogue was sale priced at both iTunes and Amazon MP3 this week. Showbiz even charted for a brief time on iTunes.

Actually, it is a record-breaking debut for the band. Billboard just confirmed "Madness" bowed at a lofty #8 on both its Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts. Over 60 rock stations gave it substantial airplay in its first week of release. I believe the only other bands whose first radio singles have recently debuted in the top ten on these two charts were Linkin Park, Green Day and Foo Fighters.

I don't really understand the significance of this but I accept that its good if people are saying it.

I think the reason it didn't debut too high in the UK charts is the way it was released without any airplay. It hasn't had a lot of time but it was at least a higher debut than the midweeks. People were saying it was about 50 so it has moved up. Perhaps it will move further up the UK charts as people hear it more.

These guys will be on Saturday Night Live which will surely boost sales.Just wondering when they will be doing something similar in the UK.Seems as Warner doesn't care much about publicity in the UK for some reason..

Thanks, forluthien, for posting the chart debut for "Madness" on The Billboard Hot 100. It compares favourably with the #81 debut of "Uprising" in August 2009.

The latest Social 50 chart on billboard.com might be of interest to you:

1. PSY
2. One Direction
3. Taylor Swift
4. Muse
5. Justin Bieber

This new chart measures social media popularity of artists. Muse got as high as #37 on this chart early last year before this week's ranking which coincided with the release of the band's first radio single from T2L.

Longest chart spans by father and son on The Billboard Hot 100 ranked by father's first appearance and son's latest chart appearance:

George and Matt Bellamy (1962-2012)*

Bob and Jakob Dylan (1965-2000)**

Ricky and twin sons Matthew and Gunnar Nelson (1958-1991)

Bob and sons Ziggy and Damian Marley (1976-2005)

Julio and Enrique Iglesias (1984-2012)

John and Julian Lennon (1964-1989)

Will and Jaden Smith (1988-2011)

Dean and Dino Martin (1958-1968)

*Besides the #1 "Telstar" George also charted with "Ridin' the Wind" which he wrote for The Tornados in early 1963; Matt and Muse have charted with "Madness," "Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)," and its highest charting single to date "Uprising" which peaked at #37 and spent 20 weeks on the chart and has sold over 2 million digital downloads to date.

**Matt Bellamy and Jakob Dylan are on the latest Triple A airplay chart dated September 8, 2012 with their bands Muse and the Wallflowers, respectively. Both artists also have new albums due out on October 2.

"Madness" moves up from #12 to #7 on the latest Mediabase Alternative Songs chart. It also sold another 20K downloads. Except for the first single from Mumford & Sons, all the songs ahead of it on the chart are showing decreased airplay.

The new CD from Barbra Streisand will be released on October 9 and will therefore not compete against T2L. The band's SNL appearance on October 6 should help boost sales for both the album and the single. The audience for SNL should be about seven million. Pre-order sales of T2L at iTunes are estimated at 5-10k.

Will WMG promote "Madness" to pop radio?
