Abstract (Document Summary)

Staind, one of the rare metal bands in recent years that is enjoying widespread critical support, continues to top the nation's album chart, outselling its nearest rival last week by almost 2 to 1.

The band's "Break the Cycle" collection sold 326,000 copies, bringing its two-week total to just more than 1 million copies. It's the third consecutive week a hard-rock album has topped the U.S. charts, a rarity in a time when hip-hop or teen-pop collections have tended to rule the bestseller list.

Behind Staind, Destiny's Child's "Survivor" moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 by selling 169,000 copies. The female pop-R&B trio's album has sold almost 1.6 copies since its release May 1.
