Powered by new songs from Paramore and Perry Farrell, the soundtrack to the film adaptation of vampire novel series Twilight has hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard album chart and dethroned the roughest group of rock’n’rollers in the game — AC/DC.
According to Billboard.com, the Twilight soundtrack — also including tunes from Linkin Park, MuteMath, and Muse — sold 165,000 copies in the U.S., 48,000 of which were digital downloads. Twilight is the third soundtrack to hit the No. 1 slot this year, following Juno and Mamma Mia.
It certainly appears author Stephenie Meyer’s musical tastes are well received!
