showing, 59 for every week at #2, and so on. Every band on the Top 121
garnered at least 60 points - the equivalent of being #1 for one week.
The #1 record of the summer, The Hot Snakes, finished off with 350 points, a
full 36 points more than their nearest competitor. There were two releases
with more than 300 points, thirteen with more than 200, and fifty-eight with
more than 100 points.
