Hilltop Hoods and Bruce Springsteen trump Adele, plus all the other movements on this week’s ARIA Charts.

It wasn’t hard to predict that Hilltop Hoods would continue their monster run of releases by hitting number one again with their sixth album Drinking From The Sun. It also went instantly Gold and dragged The Hard Road and The Calling back into the charts at 49 and 50.

But it was a bit of a surprise that Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball burst into the second spot, shifting Adele’s mighty 21 down to number three.

The next new entry was Hot Chelle Rae’s Whatever at 25, then emo-pop act Fun’s debut Some Nights at 35, and Soulfly’s Enslaved at 40.

A promo blitz shot Michael Crawford’s The Story Of My Life up from 37 to nine, and Bon Iver’s tour gave both albums a bump.

Last week’s top ten locals Troy Cassar-Daley and Last Dinosaurs slumped to 27 and 35 respectively.

Fun retain the number one slot on the singles chart with ‘We Are Young’ featuring Janelle Monae. There was little movement on that list, but Canadian Idol third-place holder Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ hopped up from 39 to 15. Might have something to do with the 4.2 million hits for the YouTube video featuring some shirtless dude.
