3 Doors Down

Music fans seem to like what's behind door No. 3—at the expense of Bun B and Dancing With the Stars' Julianne Hough. And maybe Scarlett Johansson should stick to her day job.

Mississippi rockers 3 Doors Down opened atop the Billboard 200 for the second straight time as their new self-titled album sold 154,000 copies for the week ended Sunday, per Nielsen SoundScan. The band, best known for the 2000 megahit "Kryptonite," previously topped the charts with 2005's Seventeen Days.

Bun B debuted at No. 2, selling 98,000 copies of his sophomore solo effort, II Trill. The Southern rapper had been one-half of the rap duo UGK until the December death of partner Pimp C. The late, great Pimp posthumously appears on II Trill, however, with verses recorded before his death.

Hough, the youngest pro hoofer on and two-time champ of Dancing With the Stars, stepped in at No. 3 with sales of 67,000 for her country-music debut. Hough is currently at country radio with "That Song in My Head."

Just outside the top 10, Jesse McCartney, the former Dream Street member who recently cowrote Leona Lewis' smash "Bleeding Love," landed at No. 14 with his third solo effort, Departure, selling 30,000 copies. Meanwhile, Donna Summer's first new album in a decade, Crayons, colored in the No. 17 spot with 23,000 copies.

Finally, Green Day alter egos Foxboro Hot Tubs soaked up 19,000 in sales for Stop Drop and Roll!!! at No. 21.

Finally, Johansson's debut album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, a disc full of Tom Waits covers, was a flat-out disaster, selling about 5,100 copies to open way down at 139.

Overall, sales were down 3 percent from last week and down 13 percent compared to the same sales week in 2007.

1. 3 Doors Down, 3 Doors Down
2. II Trill, Bun B

5. Narrow Stairs, Death Cab for Cutie
