Green Day And Kelly Clarkson: It's Like The Old Days All Over Again

I like Green Day. I really do. There have been some shrieks that their upcoming album 21st Century Breakdown (out May 15) is just more of the same territory they covered on 2004's American Idiot. Good! That was a sweet album, and one of my favorites through fall '04 and early '05.

When Chart Rigger first started back in 2005, I used to hope "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" would get to #1 on Billboard's Hot 100. That single was the subject of D'luv's first ever roundup of the Billboard chart.

Alas, like Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," it was held at #2 for a stretch by some 50 Cent trash or other.

Anyway, Green Day's new one, "Know Your Enemy," debuts this week at #40. It's not great, but still better than a lot of garbage on the chart right now.

Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hook Up" debuts at #88, as well. It's like 2005 all over again. Now all we need is some new music from Crazy Frog.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Boom Boom Pow" - The Black Eyed Peas *3 weeks*
2. "Poker Face" - Lady GaGa
3. "Right Round" - Flo Rida feat. Kesha
4. "The Climb" - Miley Cyrus
5. "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" - Souljah Boy Tell 'Em feat. Sammie
6. "Day 'N' Nite" - Kid Cudi
7. "Blame It" - Jamie Foxx feat. T-Pain
8. "Dead And Gone" - T.I. feat. Justin Timberlake
9. "We Made You" - Eminem *new*
10. "You Found Me" - The Fray
