NEVERMIND, APPARENTLY SLIPKNOT HAS A #1 RECORD AFTER ALL
So remember two hours ago when we reported that Slipknot had missed the #1 Soundscan spot by a mere 13 albums to The Game? Apparently Roadrunner Records pulled an Al Gore and asked for a recount. Yup, really. And unlike the ill-fated and unfortunate display of electioneering and corruption of the year 2000, the results have been reversed. After much media hullaballoo and meticulous checking of hanging chads, Slipknot is officially #1, selling 239,516 units to The Game’s 238,382. Score one for metal!
