    Foo Fighters had the high price because it was not the edition it was listed under. That edition was some deluxe box set that came with a bunch of extra crap.

    Foo Fighters must be because of being signed or something.

    Foo fighters? Why that high price?

    “Vinyl leads this month’s list at 93% of formats. In second we have CD with 20%. Right behind #2 we find Box Set with 17%”

    Shouldn’t these numbers add up to something equal or slightly less than 100% …?

    “More than a quarter of the genres this month are Rock representing 50%”???

    “…which sold for $1375.00. This is a new high for this release.” … ” The lowest this release has sold for was $1375.00.”
