Arcade Fire top the list this week and are inducted into the Chart Show Hall of Fame for the ninth time! That puts them at #2 on the All-Time HOF Chart just behind The Black Keys with 10 inductions. Dawes, Bon Iver, Jack White and Father John Misty all have eight so far. The Breeders will support Arcade Fire at The Xcel Energy Center on Oct 29th.

Gorillaz are the highest new entry at #5 they stop by Roy Wilkins on Sept 20th. They just released another new video, their favorite medium, for the track "Strobelight" which features a cameo by Jehnny Beth of Savages.

LCD Soundsystem are back at nine this week and are still having trouble justifying their return. In a new extensive interview with the New York Times, James Murphy suggests that advice from David Bowie had a lot to do with his decision to resurrect the band so quickly after their "Final Shows" at Madison Square Garden in 2011.

The Killers, brand new at #10, just started a world tour in support of the forthcoming "Wonderful Wonderful" album, stopping at The Xcel Energy Center Jan 17th 2018. A video for "Run For Cover" was released this week featuring a mysterious cassette tape.

Dan Auerbach, still yet to add to his inductions total as a solo artist away from The Black Keys, is at #14 with the new single from his "Waiting On A Song" which is our Album of the Week. Jade emphasizes in her review how the album was born at "picking' parties" in his home studio in Nashville with some very big name collaborators, including legendary guitarist Duane Eddy!

BORNS just released the first single from his all important sophomore album and it's at #20. He talked this week with Billboard about wanting to go "deeper and further" with this record coming early in 2018.
