Ozzy Osbourne's album chart dreams have come true - Black Sabbath have stormed to the top of the Billboard 200 countdown with their comeback album. The rocker recently confessed he really wanted a number one in America and the group's 13 has debuted at the top, giving the band a TransAtlantic double - the album is also number one in Britain. It's also their first U.S. chart-topper and second top 10 and comes almost 43 years since the group first entered the Billboard countdown. The album sold 155,000 in its first week to beat second place Daft Punk's Random Access Memories by over 100,000 units, while Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience jumps back up the chart to land at three. Last week's number one album, ...Like Clockwork by Queens of the Stone Age, tumbles out of the top 10 to 15. Boy band Big Time Rush debut 24/Seven at four, and Here's to the Good Times by Florida Georgia Line climbs to five.
