In the comments section earlier this week, Robin Carmody pointed out that the BBC News had slightly over-estimated what the Number 8 entry for Coldplay meant in terms of history: the original article has now been revised a little:

Coldplay have become the first male British band to have a new entry in the US Top 10 singles chart since The Beatles.

Someone reminded them the Spice Girls entered at number five with Say You'll Be There in 1997. Which actually means that Coldplay aren't even the first UK band to score a top ten entry in the last ten years. Although 'Coldplay - not as good as the Spice Girls' is a headline which appeals.

We'll let you know if their acievement gets any further write-down.
