We're not even close to Halloween, but some masked men are invading the Billboard Rock Charts. Who's in the mood for some rap-rock pranksters from Los Angeles?

The Lumineers seem to very much like the penthouse suite of the Rock Songs chart. For a seventh straight week, "Ho Hey" is at No. 1. The rest of the Top Five stays the same, with the exception of Imagine Dragons leapfrogging over Ed Sheeran to land at No. 4 with "It's Time."

For the sixth time in the last seven weeks, "Madness" is No. 1 on the Rock Airplay chart. Other than that, there's not much exciting going on, but we may soon be hearing from fun., whose "Carry On" is at No. 9 and rising fast.

Hollywood Undead went gold with their first album, Swan Songs, back in 2008. Now they're back with their third disc, Notes From the Underground, which debuts at No. 1 on the Rock Albums chart. But they're just one of three debuts in the Top Five. The glam-metal rockers Black Veil Brides (at No. 2) and the veteran punk group Dropkick Murphys (at No. 4) both storm the charts as well.

Notes From the Underground started off at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, helped in part by the single "We Are," and on the Alternative Albums chart, Hollywood Undead immediately claim the top spot. Meanwhile, The Lumineers sits tight at No. 2, its highest peak on this particular chart.

After seven weeks as the kings of the Hard Rock Albums chart, Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day finally gives ground. The live disc falls two notches as Hollywood Undead make it a hat trick on our three album charts. Right behind Notes From the Underground is Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones from Black Veil Brides. Also debuting is Metal, a new EP from Newsted, the band fronted by former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted.
