This week on the The Chart Show, FIVE new entries to The Chart Show Hall of Fame. Childish Gambino and Janelle Monae end their chart runs at the very top with Courtney Barnett, Trampled By Turtles, and Margo Price all joining them in entering the HOF.

We lost Jim James, Interpol, and The Record Company this week after short runs on The Chart. Twin Cities' Bad Bad Hats was the greatest gainer as they climb to #3 this week with their new single "Write It On Your Heart."

Arctic Monkeys hold on for another week as they flirt with graduating to the HOF, and Father John Misty clings to #20 as he is passed up by new entries from Lissie, Lord Huron, Rayland Baxter, and Snail Mail.
