Punk-pop band My Chemical Romance have scored their first UK number one single with Welcome To The Black Parade.
My Chemical Romance have built up a large fanbase via the internet
It is also the first time the US act have even made the UK top ten, with their previous biggest hit I'm Not Okay (I Promise) making number 19 last year.
Welcome To The Black Parade rose from number 23 in last week's chart to displace Razorlight's America.
The Killers' Sam's Town remains the top album, while Sting's Songs From The Labyrinth is the top classical album.
My Chemical Romance have built up a dedicated following, fuelled by offering free internet downloads.
However, their intense, emotional style has not found favour with all rock fans, with the crowd at this year's Reading Festival pelting them with bottles.
Scissor Sisters' I Don't Feel Like Dancin' fell to number three, with French DJ Bob Sinclar's Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now) slipping to number four.
The highest new entry on the album chart was metal band Trivium's The Crusade, which came into the chart at number seven.
