The 12-track comp, led by Paramore's "Decode," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week, reports the trade mag.

If some kid doesn't lose an arm during a premiere night riot, consider us surprised.

author (and sometime music video director) Stephenie Meyer gave fans a preview of the soundtrack's tracklisting last month. Apart from two original, Twilight-inspired Paramore tracks, the collection includes songs from mope-masters as diverse as Muse, Iron and Wine, Linkin Park -- and (squee!) the movie's Rob "Edward Cullen" Pattinson singing "Never Think.
