For funsies, I decided to pull the same positions as last week’s numbers, and my, how the mighty have fallen! Just kidding, Metallica only dropped one spot, from #10 to #11. Merle Haggard died and unseated Bob Seger at #2. There was no position 191 because 3 Doors Down and Meat Loaf tied for 190, and now we all have to look up who G-Eazy is. Enjoy!
