For The Black Keys, the eighth time is the charm. The duo just achieved their first chart-topping album with ‘Turn Blue,’ which sold 164,000 copies to narrowly take the No. 1 spot over the posthumous Michael Jackson ’Xscape’ disc.

‘Turn Blue’ marks the band’s third straight Top 10 disc, as ‘El Camino’ debuted at No. 2 and its predecessor ‘Brothers’ got as high as No. 3 on the Billboard 200 Album chart. ‘True Blue’ is off to a hot start due to a pair of singles — ‘Fever’ and the album’s title track.

The Black Keys weren’t the only ones making waves on the Billboard 200. Mushroomhead enjoyed their best showing in some time. ‘The Righteous & The Butterfly’ album debuted at No. 20, with around 11,000 copies sold. The album featured the return of former frontman J. Mann, with Jeffrey Nothing and Waylon Reavis also lending vocals. Mushroomhead’s last album, 2010′s ‘Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children,’ debuted at No. 44.

Another significant debut of the week comes from Killer Be Killed, the supergroup featuring Soulfly‘s Max Cavalera, The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato, Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders and The Mars Volta‘s Dave Elitch. Their self-titled debut arrived at No. 58 with approximately 5,500 copies sold.
