Soundgarden and Green Day both scored positions in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week.

Soundgarden scored the #5 spot with their first album in 16 years, King Animal, which sold 83,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan.  While King Animal’s first-week sales performance is impressive, it doesn’t come close to the initial success of the band’s previous release, 1996′s Down on the Upside, which racked up 176,000 copies in its first week and claimed the #2 spot on the list.

Meanwhile, the second installment of Green Day’s trilogy, ¡Dos!, clocked in at #9 with 69,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan.  ¡Dos! didn’t do as well as the band’s previous release, ¡Uno!, which debuted and peaked at #2 on the tally, selling 139,000 copies its first week out.  Green Day’s final album in the series, ¡Tré!, will arrive in stores on December 11.
