Modest Mouse tops our Alternative charts again this week, the band came in at #1 with their single
"Dashboard," Fall Out Boy scored the #2 spot with "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race."
Bloc Party shot up 4 spots to hit #3, Arcade Fire slipped to #4, and The Killers took a dip to #5. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus may not be in the this week's top 5, but they did leap up 9 spots, jumping from #20, to #11.
Beyonce Knowles is our major mover in CHR this week, and the superstar's re-release of "B'day" is surely responsible. The soul queen is at #4 with the new hit duet "Beautiful Liar (Bello Embustero)" with sexy Latina star Shakira.
At #1 is Daughtry with the single "It's Not Over," Nickelback is in 2nd place with "If Everyone Cared," Justin Timberlake slipped to #3 with "What Goes Around,"
and Carrie Underwood is #5 this week with "Before He Cheats."
Timbaland has made his NMC debut this week with the star-studded album, "Shock Value." The first single, "Give it To Me," featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, has put him in the CHR mix, and we should expect to see a lot more from the super-producer.
Tim McGraw has landed Country's #1 spot once again with the single "Last Dollar (Fly Away)," Martina McBride is inching her way to the top with "Anyway," taking over #2.
Carrie Underwood took a small dip to #3 with "Wasted," and Dierks Bentley and Gary Allan round out this week's Country chart.

Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani came in at #1 and 2, respectively, Nickelback at #3, and Carrie Underwood is our 5th place artist this week.
Timbaland has not only made his debut this week, he's also our #1 artist on the Urban charts, again with the new hit single 'Give It To Me.'
