"What can I say about Creed that hasn't been said?"
——Mike Fuller, Hastings

CREED IT AND SLEEP!

Creed's Holy War on the Charts Continues, Linkin Park, Nickelback, Ludacris and Enya Party Like it's 2002
The first official week of the new year traditionally means getting caught up with all the action. You know, who's been selling, who's still selling and, of course, who's still employed.

If you want to know who's sold well over the holidays, check out our comprehensive holiday sales roundup (hitsdailydouble.com 1/8). The rest of this website contains all the other information you need to know in order to get caught up with what's happening in the music world. All except this one very vital piece of information: To renew your subscription to Billboard call: 1-800-745-8922. Thank you.

That said, those spry spiritualists from Wind-up's Creed continue to make the HITS Top 50 Album chart their own personal house of worship—racking up yet another week at #1.

"What can I say about Creed that hasn't been said?" queried Mike Fuller of Hastings. At that point we suggested, "They like yak liver," but the line was unequivocally rejected by the veteran retailer.

This week's Top Five is rounded out by Warner Bros.' Linkin Park, Roadrunner/IDJ's Nickelback, Def Jam/IDJ's Ludacris and Reprise's Enya.

Other chart action has Interscope's No Doubt rocking steady at #7, with Arista's Pink (#8) and Epic's Shakira (#11) riding their holiday hot streaks into the first quarter (did we mention our comprehensive holiday sales roundup on page 20?).

"Obviously, things are going to slow down after the holidays," said Hastings Fuller. "But the big titles are still big and you guys still suckso we can take comfort in the familiarity factor."

Welcome back, folks. We're better than ever. Zzzzzzzzzzzz.
