Eminem's "Crack a Bottle" featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent is the top debut at No. 78, marking the rapper's first appearance on the Hot 100 since "You Don't Know" peaked at No. 12 in December 2006. Dr. Dre's absence has been even longer; he last charted as a guest on Eminem's "Encore" in January 2005.

Kings Of Leon's "Sex on Fire" begins a seventh week atop the Modern Rock chart, while Shinedown leads Mainstream Rock for a sixth with "Second Chance."
