    • The Stranglers?

      Gets odder! They're barely even punk, never mind rock/metal.

          At least, they are far more rock acts than all those Heart, Starship, Bryan Adams, and Cher. Generally, I find these charts rockier and heavier than those of 1985-87...
          I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

          • I wouldn't include Starship at all. Cher was included because she shared songwriting/production team with Bon Jovi (Desmond Child).

                  • I think The Who have more right to be there than many that are in that chart. Wouldn't extend that to the solo members, though.
                    Ignoring Faith No More is shoddy, though.

                    • ^

                      Yeah, just seems weird to see a 20+ year old re-release included....

                      • Heaven Knows has been the first really noticeable Plant's song for many years since Big Log. Great video and Jimmy played the solo on the song.
                        I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

                            No.1 magazine no longer publishing the MRIB chart....

                            Comment


                            • Did No. 1 magazine mention why the Rock Chart was being dropped? Was the Rock Chart the only chart dropped or did the magazine stop publishing other charts too?

                                Checking back it seems the HM singles chart was the only one dropped - replaced by a dance albums chart!

                                As far as I can see, they don't say why!

                                  Possibly feedback from readers? Who was the magazine aimed at? I'm assuming teenagers but maybe it was aimed less at the average teenage rock fan.

                                    Agreed - mag clearly aimed at teenage girls!

                                        The chart carried on in TV's The Chart Show. I'll post the videos when appropriate.

                                        Note Michael Bolton popping up there! Because he had a hard rock background. Yet, oddly, the Kerrang! chart ignores him. It always looked very odd when he turned up on The Chart Show's metal chart until he was dropped around the same time as Cher in 91/92.

                                                Thanks for posting.


                                                On some of the clips they cheat somewhat by playing the current hit over an earlier video.


                                                Mammoth's clip is from "Fatman" while the W.A.S.P. one is from "Scream Until You Like It" (Ghoulies and all!)

                                                  • 'Can I Play With Madness' is the single that kickstarted Iron Maiden's run of 7 consecutive top 10 hitss and brought them to the mainstream. Or at least as close to the mainstream as they were ever likely to get. It coincided with the rise of multi-format releases that rock groups in general, and Iron Maiden in particular, were able to use to their advantage. Iron Maiden in particular became masters at staggering format releases in weeks 1 and 2. With 'Can I Play With Madness' week 1 saw the vinyl (7" and 12") formats while in week 2 the CD format was released. And in one of the two weeks a 7" shaped picture disc was also released. This staggering of formats between the first two weeks was enough in the late 80s to allow Iron Maiden records to climb in week two before the inevitable drop in chart positions kicked in.
