It's always more fun when our countdown has new entries, but on this week's Billboard Rock Songs chart
the Top 10 songs are the same as they were a week ago. A few tracks trade places with other tracks, but consistency is the buzzword for this week's chart. And that means our No. 1 is the same as it's been for almost two months now.

Don't count out Rise Against
so fast. A week after "Make It Stop (September's Children)" fell two spots to No. 10, the Endgame
track refuses to exit the Top 10, staying at No. 10 for a second straight week. The punk group will be doing a quick U.S. tour in December before taking a couple months off.

hit a snag on our countdown. After making steady progress up the chart, this week "Bottoms Up" falls a spot to No. 9. Still, with strong sales and airplay gains, the Here and Now
single seems like it's still got a ton of life left in it.

, which comes out December 6, is the sixth studio album from Chevelle
. On the Rock Songs chart, the album's lead single, "Face to the Floor," moves up from No. 9 to No. 8.

"Not Again" got as high as No. 4 on our chart, but the Staind
single has been running on fumes ever since. This week, the melodic alt-metal
hit drifts down a spot to No. 7.

is the third straight Coldplay
record to go to No. 1 on the Billboard
album chart. The news is good for the Brit quartet on our countdown as well: Second single "Paradise" climbs up one place to No. 6.

Seether don't gain any ground this week, as "Tonight" sits tight at No. 5 for a third consecutive week. The band recently revealed that the rousing track from Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray
almost didn't make the album at all. Drummer John Humphrey said
that "Tonight" was one of the last songs written: "We were sitting in line at Starbucks, and [frontman] Shaun [Morgan] started playing the demo off his iPod, and we were like, 'This song is awesome, man.'"

"Pumped Up Kicks" peaked at No. 3, staying there for an impressive 10 consecutive weeks. Foster the People are now at No. 4, where they've been for four straight weeks. When these guys find a chart spot they like, they stay there for a while.

"The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie," the former No. 1 hit off I'm With You
, sits at No. 3 for a second straight week. Red Hot Chili Peppers
bassist Flea is one of the subjects of The Other F Word
, a documentary about rock and punk musicians who are also fathers.

Close but no cigar for Bush
, whose "The Sound of Winter" sits at No. 2 for a second straight week. The band are currently touring the U.S. with Chevelle and Filter

' "Walk" seems pretty well parked at No. 1. For seven weeks in a row (and eight in total), the song that concludes Wasting Light
is the king of our countdown.
