There isn't a lot of movement either up or down on this week's Billboard Rock Songs chart. There is one debut, however, and a couple modern rock bands look like they may be on their way out of the Top 10 shortly. But some funky monks still rule at No. 1.

You may want to say goodbye to "You Are a Tourist" now since this may be its last week in our Top 10. The Death Cab for Cutie track off Codes and Keys first entered the countdown back in May, eventually climbing up to No. 3. But this week, the song drops one spot to No. 10.

"Lowlife" is the first single off Theory of a Deadman's new album, The Truth Is..., and this week it barrels its way onto our chart. The populist rocker about the joys of being white trash lands at No. 9 and is our only debut.

Sixx:A.M. hold steady for a second straight week at No. 8 with "Lies of the Beautiful People." (For those who don't know, Sixx:A.M. is the side band for Motley Crue bassist and principal songwriter Nikki Sixx.) The single off This Is Gonna Hurt peaked at No. 7, but it seems like the song has lost whatever momentum it once had.

"Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" is featured in the new comedy The Change-Up, but that does little to help the track on the Rock Songs chart. This week, the Coldplay single falls one place to No. 7.

Avenged Sevenfold are in no hurry to take over our chart, but they are making slow-but-steady process. For the fifth week in a row, "So Far Away" moves up one place, this week landing at No. 6.

Foo Fighters's previous No. 1 smash, "Rope," stays at No. 5 for a second straight week. The band recently released Garage Tour, a 40-minute documentary that chronicles the mini-concerts they played in contest winners' garages back in April. They'll be doing a normal tour starting in September.

After three weeks at No. 4, Foster the People gain some ground on our chart, jumping up one spot with "Pumped Up Kicks." Not bad for a song that's been around since February 2010.

"Walk," Foo Fighters' other No. 1 hit, stays at No. 2 for a second week in a row. The band will be playing Sunday night at Lollapalooza.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are No. 1 for a second straight week. "The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie" has gotten pretty good reviews from my readers, and clearly radio has embraced the song as well, which bodes well for the release of I'm With You later this month.
