Happy New Year. The Billboard Rock Charts don't feature many new albums this week since the prime 2013 releases don't start rolling out for a little while. But in the meantime, a reunited punk trio and a benefit concert take center stage.

5. Imagine Dragons - "It's Time" (Purchase/Download)

For four weeks now, the Lumineers have ruled the Rock Songs chart. More happy news for the Denver trio: "Ho Hey" has been certified platinum. As for the rest of the Top Five, they all stay exactly as they were last week.

5. Imagine Dragons - "It's Time" (Purchase/Download)

The Rock Airplay chart continues to feature one of our most interesting battles between different musical styles. This week, the champion is Muse's futuristic "Madness," which is No. 1 for the third time in the last four weeks. The U.K. combo beat out the folk-rock stylings of Mumford & Sons, whose "I Will Wait" falls to No. 2.

4. Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day (Purchase/Download)
5. Blink-182 - Dogs Eating Dogs

Two live albums are in the Top Five of this week's Rock Albums chart, although only one is a debut. That honor goes to The Concert for Sandy Relief, a two-disc set that raised money for victims of Hurricane Sandy and featured performances from the Who, Bruce Springsteen, and the surviving members of Nirvana with Paul McCartney. Sandy Relief lands at No. 3, while Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day remains at No. 4. The only other new entry comes from Blink-182, who are at No. 5 with Dogs Eating Dogs, their first EP since leaving Interscope. But our No. 1 remains the same: The World From the Side of the Moon, the debut from Phillip Phillips.

Alternative Songs Chart

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

The Alternative Songs chart has had the same champ for the last 11 weeks. Muse's "Madness" extends its long reign, and the band will be kicking off their North American tour in a few weeks.

2. Blink-182 - Dogs Eating Dogs
3. The Lumineers - The Lumineers (Purchase/Download)
4. fun. - Some Nights (Purchase/Download)
5. Imagine Dragons - Night Visions (Purchase/Download)

Dogs Eating Dogs has a nice showing on the Alternative Albums chart, starting off at No. 2, but that's not enough to unseat Babel, now in its fifth week at No. 1. The Mumford & Sons disc was recently certified platinum. (The group's debut, Sigh No More, has gone double-platinum.)

Hard Rock Albums Chart

1. Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day (Purchase/Download)
2. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night) (Purchase/Download)
3. Aerosmith - Music From Another Dimension! (Purchase/Download)
4. Soundgarden - King Animal (Purchase/Download)
5. Linkin Park - Living Things (Purchase/Download)

Not much movement on the Hard Rock Albums chart, which means that Celebration Day stays at No. 1 for a fifth consecutive week. The only new entry in the Top Five is actually an old one. Living Things, the former No. 1 from Linkin Park, now stands at No. 5, which ain't too shabby for an album that's been out for six months.
