Yeah! The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have it!! By a nose, they climb to the top. Only a handful of votes separated the top 4. Check out the revealing interview on Spin—apparently they chose the album name Mosquito because of a Charles Darwin theory?!

Of Monsters and Men couldn't keep up the pace to vie for the top but get inducted for the third time. The Postal Service surprisingly faded on the week the Give Up album is re-issued and they make their big return at Coachella. Mates of State will join them Aug 2nd at Roy Wilkins, and tickets are still available.

We lost Atoms For Peace after 3 weeks. Atlas Genius and Local Natives get their second entries, and Junip featuring Jose Gonzalez is on the chart for the very first time.
