It's always more fun when there's movement on the Billboard Rock Songs chart, and this week's Top 10 features two debuts. And those new singles come from veteran artists hoping to make a big splash in 2011. As for the rest of our countdown, the top five spots remain the same as they were last week, which is good news for folks who love a little "Rain Dance."

Blink-182 have been talking about "Up All Night" for a while now, but they've finally released the single. This week, the track (which will be featured on their reunion album, Neighborhoods) debuts on our countdown, landing at No. 10.

Staind will be releasing their new album, Staind, on September 13, but in the meantime they've unveiled its opening track, "Not Again." This week on our chart, the song busts into the Top 10, sitting pretty at No. 9.

After weeks of slow, steady progress, Avenged Sevenfold have finally hit a speed bump. "So Far Away" drops one notch to No. 7. The band's previous single, "Nightmare," got as high as No. 3 back in the fall of 2010.

Coldplay move up one spot this week with "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall." The band's chart rise comes at the same time that they finally revealed the name of their new record, Mylo Xyloto, which will be hitting stores in October.

"Rope," the previous No. 1 smash from Foo Fighters, just doesn't want to leave our chart. For a third straight week, the Wasting Light hit hangs tough at No. 5. The single has been in the Top 10 for an impressive 24 weeks in a row.

Speaking of perseverance, "Country Song" entered the Top 10 back in early April. This week, the Seether rocker lands at No. 4 for a second week in a row. Keep an eye out for the next single from Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, "Tonight," which is starting to make some rumblings outside of the Top 10.

Foster the People are hoping to walk away with a few Moonmen at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, but on the Rock Songs chart, "Pumped Up Kicks" remains at No. 3 for a second straight week. The breakthrough smash for the Los Angeles trio managed to hit No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart.

"Walk" is at No. 2 for a third week in a row. The song's video is an homage to the Michael Douglas film Falling Down, with frontman Dave Grohl playing the put-upon corporate drone. Thankfully, Grohl's character doesn't come to as tragic an end as what happened to Douglas in the original film.

"The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" sits atop our chart for a third straight week. Red Hot Chili Peppers will be releasing I'm With You later this month, and I think it's a safe bet that fans will help push it to very strong first-week sales.
