Ah, 2001. It was a simpler time. People still cared about rap-metal, and San Diego’s Payable On Death released their fourth album, Satellite – on September 11th.

Metal By Numbers 6/20: Big Time Rush

Posted by on June 20, 2012

Five years ago, the last Rush album, Snakes & Arrows, sold 93,000 copies. That’s why it’s even more impressive that in 2012, their new album has sold over 100,000 copies, matching the #2 peak that they reached back in 1993 with Counterparts. Is rock alive?
