Comments

  • The final chart presented by JP. Due to suspected vote rigging the year before, steps were taken to ensure this did not happen again.
  • It was the second chart since 1982 not to include any session tracks.
  • If any band can be said to 'dominate' the chart, it was ballboy, with three entries (none of them in the top 10).
