Five Chris Cornell Albums Re-enter US Album Charts

As usual, death turns out to be good for business.

There was the understandable explosion in interest in Chris Cornell’s music following his death last Thursday. We still don’t have the full chart results–the sales week runs Friday to Thursday midnight–but early indications are that plenty of people bought Chris Cornell-related albums.  In the US, five albums have re-entered the charts:

Superunknown – Soundgarden (#32)
Audioslave – Audioslave (#54)
Badmotorfinger – Soundgarden (#110)
Temple of the Dog – Temple of the Dog (#136)
Songbook – Chris Cornell (#183)

Full details on the previous week’s sales and streaming are published late Monday.
