Kerrang topples NME as best selling music weekly. Not that we are swamped by music weeklies these days – and at closer inspection this is not a story looking at the collapse of the weekly. The NME has stayed solid, Kerrang has put on a massive 67% spurt in sales. I think this may bear further examination. Is Kerrang any better than it was, has Nu-Metal expanded to such a degree that it can support these kind of sales. Or is it merely the impression I get that Kerrang knows who its talking to, and is more fun? After all, who can hate a magazine called Kerrang!!!!

(I also cannot imagine Kerrang saddling their best of poll with the appalling title Pazz & Jop Poll – and where exactly was the Jazz anyhoo.)
