Foo Fighters score U.S No.1 with 'Wasting Light'

Superstars of rock, Foo Fighters, have scored their very first U.S number 1 album with 'Wasting Light'. 

The record, which was recorded in frontman Grohl's garage in an analogue and now 'old school' format, shot to the top of the UK charts last Sunday, April 17, and is doing just as well in America as it sits atop of the Billboard 200. 

Neilsen SoundScan confirmed that the band's seventh studio album has shifted more than 235,000 copies in the States, putting it firmly at number 1. Watch their performance of 'Walk' during a recent episode of Saturday Night Live here:
