A pox on all you "Rock is dead" naysayers and gadflies. Jack White's debut album Blunderbuss premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Despite all their success, the White Stripes never reached the top spot, with 2007's Icky Thump peaking at No. 2 and 2005's Get Behind Me Satan only making it to No. 3. (The Raconteurs' two albums each topped out at No. 7 for all you Jack White trivia completists.)
So raise a guitar pick to John Anthony Gillis and his thunderous new album. Well done, sir.
