Queens Of The Stone Age - Queens Of The Stone Age Take The Crown At The Top Of U.s. Album Chart

Rockers Queens Of The Stone Age have scored their first number one album in America.

The group, led by Josh Homme, has debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 with Like Clockwork thanks to 91,000 first-week sales.

The album ends Daft Punk's two-week reign at number one - Random Access Memories slides a spot to two on the new countdown, while rockers Sleeping With Sirens debut Feel at three.

Blake Shelton's Based on a True Story... climbs to four and Darius Rucker's True Believers rounds out the top five.

Meanwhile, on the singles chart, Robin Thicke scores a TransAtlantic double with Blurred Lines, which hit the top of the charts in the U.K. last week and remains at number one.

The song, featuring rapper T.I. and Pharrell Williams, is Thicke's first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper.

Last week's number one, MACklemore & Ryan Lewis' Can't Hold Us, slips to two after five weeks on top and Williams lands a second mention in the top three as part of the Daft Punk collaboration on Get Lucky.

Miley Cyrus scores the highest debut of the week at 11 with her new single We Can't Stop.
