    • I think the chart shrinking to a top 30 was probably a good move. The bottom part of the top 40 was largely static. Even the bottom part of the top 30 is stattic. I'm surprised that there wasn't a quicker turnover of entries given that the rock / metal genre was still healthy in 1992.

      • Not much difference in the Chart Show Rock Chart for 14th March (corresponding to the above chart for WE 21st March) - G N R top instead of Nirvana

          • and there's the Manics!

            Great Spinal Tap single, too. One of the few ST songs you can actually say that about!

              • The Chart Show include that Mr Bean single as well. Highly dubious inclusion!

                Comment


                • Having heard it yes dubious. But it is more rock than others that did make the chart of rock is guitars….
                  http://thechartbook.co.uk - for the latest are best chart book - By Decade!
                  Now including NME, Record Mirror and Melody Maker from the UK and some Billboard charts

                  • An excusable inclusion methinks.

                    Take away the surprisingly unamusing Rowan Atkinson interjections and we're left with a decent if unimaginative Bruce Dickinson cover of an Alice Cooper classic...

                      You're right. I forgot that Smear Campaign is the band Skin. https://www.discogs.com/artist/298159-Skin-4 Bean is barely on it, just as Mr Blobby was barely on his record!

                      On the VHS release the band are credited as Taste https://www.discogs.com/release/9410...-To-Be-Elected

                      They would become Skin before charting in 93.

                                  • Sisters Of Mercy?? Didn't see that coming! The previous studio album (the one with More and Doctor Jeep) was very hard rock but i wouldn't class them as that generally. Also i've never seen the 92 version of TOL credited like that on any chart. It's usually just Temple Of Love (the original made the Indie Chart but not the Rock Chart).

                                    ITV Chart Show Rock Chart (25th April 1992)



                                    No Sisters here. Prong are in though - Prove You Wrong is the lead song on that EP.

                                            • That Metallica live thing was a different format of Nothing Else Matters on the official charts. It helped it climb to #6. https://www.discogs.com/master/63328...pril-20th-1992
                                              NEM was track 3 on it but was listed as the title on the spine.

                                              And it was also not included here:

                                              ITV Chart Show - Rock Chart (16th May 1992)



                                              no more rock charts til October on YouTube
