The Canadians are coming! Specifically, twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin, whose new album was a big hit with rock fans.

4. Of Monsters and Men - "Little Talks" (Purchase/Download)
5. Ed Sheeran - "The A Team" (Purchase/Download)

The Lumineers have now sat atop the Rock Songs chart for an impressive 10 weeks in a row. Elsewhere, fun.'s "Some Nights" drops out of the Top Five, opening the door for the entry of Of Monsters and Men, whose "Little Talks" lands at No. 4. By the way, that's one of two tracks from the Icelandic band we'll be talking about this week.

4. The Black Keys - "Little Black Submarines" (Purchase/Download)
5. Atlas Genius - "Trojans" (Purchase/Download)

Nobody budges on this week's Rock Airplay chart, which means that our winner and still champion is Muse. "Madness" has been No. 1 for nine of the last 10 weeks. The Lumineers are at No. 3 with "Ho Hey," but the follow-up single, "Stubborn Love," moves up from No. 14 to No. 9.

Tegan and Sara have been putting out albums since the late '90s. Their latest, Heartthrob, grabs the top spot on the Rock Albums chart in its first week, holding off Babel. Our other debut in the Top Five comes from Los Angeles indie-rock collective Local Natives: Hummingbird places at No. 4.

Alternative Songs Chart

4. Mumford & Sons - "I Will Wait" (Purchase/Download)
5. Of Monsters and Men - "Mountain Sound" (Purchase/Download)

Let's tip our cap to Muse. For an 18th week, their 2nd Law single "Madness" is No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart. That's not just impressive, it's record-tying: The only other song to stay that long at No. 1 on the chart is Foo Fighters' "The Pretender." (In case you're wondering, one song has spent 17 weeks at No. 1, and that's Muse as well for "Uprising.") Elsewhere, Of Monsters and Men jump into the top five with their other big hit, "Mountain Sound."

Another album chart, another win for Tegan and Sara. Heartthrob bests the competition on the Alternative Albums chart. If Babel ends up winning the Grammy for Album of the Year, though, it could find itself back on top soon enough.

5. Black Veil Brides - Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones (Purchase/Download)

The Divinity of Purpose earns Hatebreed the No. 1 position on this week's Hard Rock Albums chart. Right behind them are Tomahawk, fronted by Faith No More lead singer Mike Patton: Their Oddfellows lands at No. 2.
