If you can somehow wrap your head around it, Thomas Earl Petty has never hit the top of the Billboard 200 until this week. His first LP, Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, arrived in 1976, and made it to #55 on the main album chart. And after that he’s come close to the top — mainly with 1979′s Damn The Torpedoes (#2), 1989′s Full Moon Fever (#3), 1993′s must-have Greatest Hits (#5), 2006′s Highway Companion (#4) and 2010′s Mojo (#2) — but never hit the #1 spot until the release of current LP Hypnotic Eye with his band The Heartbreakers.

Altogether, Hypnotic Eye moved 131,000 copies in its first week, enough to bump Aussie boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer‘s self-titled debut off the top and down to #4. Coming in just behind Petty at #2 is another rock legend, Eric Clapton, with his latest album The Breeze: An Appreciation Of JJ Cale (61,000). The Guardians Of The Galaxy companion album/soundtrack Awesome Mix Vol. 1 rounds out the upper portion of debuts by entering at #3 (60,000).

One noteworthy bit of activity on this week’s album chart: the Frozen soundtrack slips to #6 after an epic 31 weeks inside the Top 5.
