Generation gap at the top

Empty

One-time indie fave Death Cab for Cutie scores its first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as new albums take the top four positions.

And the triumph gives the band's members a bragging right they can share with their grandchildren —and grandparents: We beat Frank Sinatra.

Ol' Blue Eyes died 10 years ago last week, and the commerative compilation "Nothing but the Best" bows at No. 2, Sinatra's best chart since "Duets" in 1993.

Jason Mraz earns a chart best with "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things." With that, Warner Music Group and WEA Distribution monopolizes the top three chart spots for the first time in more than 16 years. (partialdiff)
