Tool continues to dominate the world with Fear Inoculum

After knocking Taylor Swift’s Lover out of the top spot on the album charts throughout the world, Tool continues to dominate pretty much everything with Fear Inoculum.

As of this weekend, all ten songs on the album–yes, including the wordless ambient interludes–are in the Top 25 Billboard’s rock songs chart. Six songs are in the top 10 (at least when I last checked Saturday night. Go here to see where things are now.)

Over on iTunes Canada, Fear Inoculum is (at this writing) sitting at number three behind The Lumineers’ III and The Nothing from Korn. (The Glorious Sons’ A War on Everything is in fourth spot, meaning you have to look to number five before we reach a non-rock album. That’s Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding.)

Elsewhere in the iTunes world, Fear Inoculum is second behind Korn in Australia, #7 in Italy, #8 in Spain, and #10 in Germany.

The biggest act on the iTunes rock charts right now? Eddie Money. There’s been a huge spike in downloads of his songs since his death on Friday. As of late Saturday afternoon, Money’s songs occupied the first nine spots on the American iTunes rock songs chart.
