Boy band beats Oasis to #1
Westlife, the Irish boy band, have beaten Oasis and The Beatles in a battle to the top of the British album chart.
What had shaped up as a battle between the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band and rock's greatest group was expected to be the greatest chart fight since Oasis took on Blur for chart domination in the heyday of Britpop. But Westlife's Love Album took #1. The Oasis best-of, Stop The Clocks, took second place. The Beatles' troublesome Love came in at three, and a U2 compilation was Number 4.
