Three new entries in the top ten of Billboard's European Albums chart are headed by AC/DC's No. 1 debut with the soundtrack of "Iron Man 2" (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment). Stromae's "Alors On Danse" (Mosaert/Vertigo) begins a third separate run atop European Hot 100 Singles, a sequence that now totals five weeks at the summit.

The AC/DC album, which consists of catalog material from the mid-1970s onwards, gives the veteran rock act its third No. 1 in the United Kingdom, on sales of just under 57,000 units. It also gathers No. 1s in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Ireland, arrives at No. 4 in Spain, Norway and Denmark, No. 5 in Holland and No. 9 in Portugal and climbs 22-2 in the Belgian regions of Flanders and Wallony.

Lady Gaga's "The Fame" (Interscope/Universal) thus moves down to No. 2 overall, but improves 14-10 in Holland. Paul Weller's "Wake Up The Nation" (Universal Island) takes its pan-European bow at No. 3, narrowly missing out on becoming his fourth U.K. solo No. 1 and entering in runners-up spot there, behind AC/DC on sales of 52,000. "Nation" is also in at No. 8 in Ireland.

Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies)" (Interscope/Universal) spends its 46th week on European Albums by holding at No. 4, as it does in Flanders, and climbs 7-6 in Denmark. Amy Macdonald is back up one place Europe-wide, 6-5, with "A Curious Thing" (Mercury/Universal), which climbs 13-5 in Flanders but falls 1-2 in Switzerland.

"Slash" (Roadrunner) falls 3-6 for the celebrated rock axeman, who posts a No. 6 debut in Italy but drops 1-6 in Austria and 1-5 in Sweden. German reggae star Gentleman's second week on European Albums with "Diversity" (Universal) shows a 5-7 dip, after he falls 1-3 in Germany and 2-5 in Switzerland, although he holds at No. 2 in Austria.

Unheilig's "Grosse Freiheit" (Universal), which has been in and around the top ten of the pan-European album survey since its debut in early March, rises again 11-8, holding at No. 2 in Germany, where the single "Geboren Um Zu Leben" is down 3-4.

After AC/DC and Paul Weller, the third long-server to return to the European album scene is Meat Loaf, in at No. 9 with "Hang Cool Teddy Bear" (Mercury/Universal). That's after debuts at No. 4 in both the United Kingdom (on sales of 31,000) and Switzerland. U.K. rapper-singer Plan B's "The Defamation of Strickland Banks" (679/Atlantic/Warner Music), which opened across Europe at No. 8 last week, dips two places, after falling 1-3 in his home territory and 9-10 in Ireland.

Belgian singer-songwriter Stromae first led European Hot 100 Singles in March, and makes a third climb to the summit as "Alors On Danse" makes some new strides. Although it falls 1-2 in Austria and Switzerland, it's up 13-1 in Holland, 15-2 in Flanders, 11-2 in Wallony and 7-3 in Denmark, also holding at No. 1 in France.
