The Bull Moose Top Tens for 2008

Bull Moose Music has released its 2008 top-ten lists of products sold. Of some interest are these facts: (UPDATED)

--Metallica's Death Magnetic outsold anything else,

--Ray LaMontagne is no longer considered a local artist (by Bull Moose - we're still proud of him and claim him as our own! - by which definition he outsold every local artist all local artists except Dead Season, with a h/t to Sam for the eagle eye).

--Dead Season, after weeks at the pinnacle of the weekly top ten, owned the top two spots in local-CD sales, beating out Rustic Overtones. And they were fifth in overall sales, beating Disturbed, Lil Wayne, Radiohead, and TI!

--Bob Marley (the comedian) is somehow considered a local musician.

Also, the CDs people bought used the most were also the ones sold back to Bull Moose the most - the lists are nearly identical. (Question: were more sold than bought, or t'other way round?)

The whole mess of lists follows.
