There are plenty of new albums on this week's Billboard Rock Charts, but the big winners are Paramore, whose latest record is self-titled. As for our singles charts, very little has changed, which is fantastic news for Imagine Dragons.

5. Mumford & Sons - "I Will Wait" (Purchase/Download)

For a fourth week in a row, "Radioactive" is No. 1 on the Rock Songs chart. There's not a lot of movement otherwise, but watch out for Fall Out Boy. Their single "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" jumps up a spot to No. 4.

Imagine Dragons enjoy a seventh straight week at the top of the Rock Airplay chart. "Radioactive" defeats Of Monster and Men's "Mountain Sound" yet again, but we do have a new entry in the Top Five. That would be Mumford & Sons, whose "Lover of the Light" says hello at No. 4, moving up two spots.

5. Imagine Dragons - Night Visions (Purchase/Download)

We have four new entries in the Top Five of the Rock Albums chart. At No. 1, though, is Paramore, the group's fourth disc -- and the band's first to conquer the overall Billboard album chart. Right behind Paramore are Volbeat, whose Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies checks in at No. 2. Meanwhile, Stone Sour's superb finale to their double-disc concept album, House of Gold & Bones - Part 2, is at No. 3, and the debut self-titled disc from Device, who have just started a tour, places at No. 4.

Alternative Songs Chart

1. Imagine Dragons - "Radioactive"

4. Mumford & Sons - "Lover of the Light"
5. Of Monsters and Men - "Mountain Sound"

"Radioactive" stays at No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart for a ninth consecutive week. But another big story is the rise of Muse's "Panic Station." The latest single from The 2nd Law jumps up three spots to find itself at No. 3.

Alternative Albums Chart

2. Stone Sour - House of Gold & Bones - Part 2
3. Imagine Dragons - Night Visions
4. fun. - Some Nights (Purchase/Download)
5. Mumford & Sons - Babel (Purchase/Download)

Paramore is the champ on the Alternative Albums chart as well, with House of Gold & Bones - Part 2 having to settle for No. 2.

Hard Rock Albums Chart

1. Volbeat - Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies
2. Stone Sour - House of Gold & Bones - Part 2
3. Device - Device
4. Killswitch Engage - Disarm the Descent (Purchase/Download)
5. Bring Me the Horizon - Sempiternal (Purchase/Download)

With Paramore not considered hard rock, their competitors are free to battle it out over No. 1 on the Hard Rock Albums chart. The Danish band Volbeat end up on top, while last week's No. 1, Killswitch Engage, drops to No. 4. Fans can't get enough of Volbeat right now: Their previous full-length effort, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, currently resides at No. 10.
