Linkin Park has sold more albums in the U.S. than any other act that has emerged since January 2000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The band's new album, The Hunting Party, is expected to sell about 100K copies in its first week, which will extend its lead. But keep an eye out for Taylor Swift. The country/pop superstar has a new album due in the fourth quarter, which may enable her to move up to the top spot. – Paul Grein
