The White Stripes have scored a career-best debut with their sixth album, Icky Thump. Last week, 223,056 people bought copies of the blues-rock duo's latest opus, securing them the number two spot on the Billboard charts behind Bon Jovi (whose Lost Highway moved 291,532 copies). This marks both the White Stripes' highest chart debut ever and their hottest week of sales: 2005's Get Behind Me Satan entered the charts at number three, selling 189,000 copies in its first week. Somewhere, Jack and Meg are surely clinking Red Stripes (to a rigid beat) in celebration.
