This week, it's out with the old, in with the new. Seven fresh tunes kick a bunch of oldies right off the chart:

Franz Ferdinand named themselves after Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, whose assassination in 1914 effectively starting World War I. The band are back with a new single from the album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action called "Right Action."

This week also sees  new music by Toad the Wet Sprocket, a band with a ridiculous name but a serious career. Named after a fake band invented by Eric Idol of Monty Python, Toad the Wet Sprocket have been going since 1986. After having made 5 albums and selling millions of records, who's laughing now? This year they're back with "New Constellation."

This song title by The Lone Bellow might not be grammatically correct, but what it lacks in grammar, it makes up for with soul. “You Never Need Nobody” is another new entry on the chart this week.

This week, Express and Company have a new video for their song "Carry Me Along." Watch the video right to the end for some great outtakes, which prove that you can’t shoot a video on a country road without getting a face full of bugs.

Tenacious twins Tegan and Sara stay at number one for the second consectutive week with "I Was A Fool."
