On this week’s Billboard album chart, Elvis is still the king, though he faced stiff competition from the Rolling Stones. Presley’s ”Elvis 30 No. 1 Hits” held the top spot for the second straight week, selling another 336,660 discs, according to SoundScan, with the Stones close behind at No. 2, selling 309,800 copies of two-disc greatest hits collection ”Forty Licks.” Oh, some 21st-century acts made the charts, too. Rapper Xzibit debuted at No. 3 with ”Man vs. Machine,” shifting 157,000 units. Kelly Clarkson and Co. scored a No. 4 debut with ”American Idol Greatest Hits,” on sales of146,100. Slipping three spots, but selling just 3,000 records less than last week, the Dixie Chicks’ ”Home” was No. 5 and sold 130,400 more copies.

The week’s other top 10 debut was the second CD by punk-popsters Good Charlotte, whose ”The Young and the Hopeless” entered the chart at No. 7. Avril Lavigne’s ”Let Go” and Nelly’s ”Nellyville” dropped three notches apiece, landing at Nos. 6 and 8, respectively. Eminem’s ”The Eminem Show” slid two spots to No. 9, while Disturbed’s ”Believe” fell six places to No. 10.
