One of 2012's top rookie bands continues to have a stranglehold on the Billboard Rock Charts in early 2013.

5. Ed Sheeran - "The A Team" (Purchase/Download)

"Ho Hey" has now been No. 1 on the Rock Songs chart for eight weeks in a row. If there's a song that could dislodge it from the top, my money would be on "It's Time." (The Imagine Dragons single moves up a spot to No. 3.) By the way, "Ho Hey" isn't the only song making waves on the Rock Songs chart from the Lumineers: "Stubborn Love" is currently at No. 11.

"Madness," off Muse's The 2nd Law, continues to rule the Rock Airplay chart. It's been at No. 1 for seven of the last eight weeks, besting Mumford & Sons' "I Will Wait." Reentering the Top Five are Atlas Genius, whose "Trojans" lands at No. 5.

Our brand new No. 1 on the Rock Albums chart comes from a record that's been out since April. At long last, The Lumineers tops the chart, leaping up two spots. The debut disc from the Denver folk-rock group was recently certified gold.

Muse hold off the Black Keys yet again on the Alternative Songs chart, as "Madness" tops "Little Black Submarines." But keep an eye out for "Radioactive" from Imagine Dragons, which moves from No. 5 to No. 3.

The Lumineers also earns its first ever No. 1 spot on the Alternative Albums chart, jumping up from No. 2. Our only new entry in the Top Five is Fade, the latest disc from the celebrated New Jersey indie-rock trio Yo La Tengo. It checks in at No. 5.

5. Deftones - Koi No Yokan (Purchase/Download)

Last week, Hollywood Undead dominated our album charts with their new collection, Notes From the Underground. This week isn't so impressive for the rap-rock crew, but they do still lay claim to the No. 1 spot on the Hard Rock Albums chart. Meanwhile, making their debut in the Top Five is the metal band The Plot in You: Their wonderfully titled Could You Watch Your Children Burn lands at No. 4.
