2020 “Spotify Wrapped” Numbers for 161 Metal, Hard Rock and Punk Artists


Ever wondered how various artists from throughout the metal and hard rock communities stack up against one another when it comes to YouTube views, Apple Music streams, pure album sales, ticket sales (back when those were a thing… and when they become so again) and other metrics? Stream N’ Destroy is a newsletter that features all of those things and then some. Compiled by metal journalist and manager Ryan J. Downey, Stream N’ Destroy, which arrives a couple of times a week, has quickly become one of our most anticipated reads the moment it hits our inbox.

In the latest edition of Stream N’ Destroy, Ryan painstakingly assembled a list of the ‘Spotify Wrapped’ figures posted by metal, hard rock and punk artists over the past several days, each of which feature a graphic compiled by Spotify displaying the total number of streams a band’s music has garnered in 2020, along with some other metrics. There is no central database or easy way to search for these numbers, so Ryan compiled them by hand based on bands he happened to think of to include. In other words, this list is by no means exhaustive, and features a) only bands Ryan happened to think of, and b) ones who shared their Spotify Wrapped figures publicly.
