Vampire Weekend have received excellent reviews for their latest disc, Modern Vampires of the City, and it's also been a hit with audiences, going to No. 1 on the Billboard album chart. It also performed very well on our rock charts...

Imagine Dragons continue their hot streak on the Rock Songs chart. For a ninth straight week, "Radioactive" is at No. 1, yet again holding off Fall Out Boy's "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)." Making a big push, though, is Lana Del Rey, whose "Young and Beautiful," from the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby, bolts up six notches to No. 3.

For a 12th week in a row, "Radioactive" stands atop the heap on the Rock Airplay chart. Hanging tough at No. 2 is "Safe and Sound" from Capital Cities, and rising a notch to No. 3 is the Neighbourhood's "Sweater Weather." But in case you're thinking that Imagine Dragons once again this week pulled off the hat trick on all three of our rock singles charts, scroll down.
