performance at MTV's

Fragile, debuts at No. 1 on next week's
Billboard album chart, the Billboard 200. The

Blink-182's Enema of the State reached the 1
million mark as well.

20. Tori Amos' two disc set To Venus and
Back, featuring 11 new songs and 13 live
songs recorded on the recent From the
Choirgirl Hotel tour, bows at No. 12.
Everyone's favorite comedian, Adam Sandler,
sees his fourth album, Stan and Judy's Kid,
enter the charts at No. 16. Former
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell's solo
