TOP 200 ALBUMS FOR THE YEAR 2000!

This is a chart of the Top 200 albums of the year, according to Soundscan. You are only going to find this shit at Metal Sludge.

Remember, these are only the sales for this year! So if a band put out an album this year, this would be their current Soundscan total. However, some bands have albums on this chart that came out years ago, but they still sell a shit load of them. For example, Metallica is at #132 with their black album which came out in 1991! But it sold 726,321 units this year! Who the fuck is still buying that record?

Anyways, we listed the rock bands in white so you can find them easier.
