    Feb 7, 2013 The Chart Show

A surprise surge takes Metric to the top for the first time! This is the 3rd track from Synthetica to chart, but obviously the most popular yet from that album. Speaking of popular ...

Mumford and Sons get inducted to our Hall of Fame for the 6th time, equaling The Black Keys for most entries, and Jack White gets the 4th song from his Top 89-topping album into the HOF.

One re-entry, Local Natives return in the week of their album release. Local faves Cloud Cult had a good week with a song featured at our 8th Birthday Party and our MN Artist of the Month, Low, stayed solid. P.O.S. had a mixed week NOT getting his new kidney yet but announcing that he will be at Sasquatch!

Programming note: Next week's Chart Show will be on Wednesday, February 13. Mark will be playing your Valentine's Day requests on Thursday, February 14. Request your love song here.
