Manics Top 50s - 4th May 2015

It looks like we're now moving into the final stretch as the charts start moving again into the final 4 weeks.  Today we have a chart from someone who wasn't able to participate last time despite being a regular contributor to the related chats, so this chart was much anticipated!

In many ways it's the chart of the underdog, both song-wise and the albums that they come from, although Underdogs itself is conspicuous by its absence.  There aren't many charts where Know Your Enemy and Lifeblood will take as many songs each as the first 3 albums combined but we've learned to expect the unexpected!  Make sure you have a look at our first video entry as well (link below), a novel and interesting way to announce the chart.  Keep your eyes peeled, I think we're going to be getting a few more charts announced soon!!
