Soundgarden[edit]

Soundgarden hit #96 with "Black Rain." Take them off the list of those with a #1 album but no Hot 100 hits.75.142.54.211 (talk) 07:40, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Soundgarden[edit]

Removed Soundgarden as one of the artists to have topped the Billboard 200 without appearing on the Billboard Hot 100, as Black Rain charted at #96 in 2010. Here is the source: http://www.billboard.com/artist/279997/soundgarden/chart GD1223 (talk) 03:57, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Billboard 200 No1 albums for two consecutive years[edit]

Is it possible to add a special section that will include the extremely rare feat of having an album topping the Billboard 200 for two consecutive years in a row? Only two studio albums had achieved that feat according to Billboard Magazine (Thriller by MJ & 21 by Adele) http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/1481410/the-year-in-pop-2012-adele-repeats-as-top-artist-gotye-scores-no-1-hot-100. Along with the OST albums we have four albums since 1960 achieving that feat CK_Bad (talk) 14:12, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

No italics for "200"[edit]

Why is the "200" in "Billboard 200" not italicized? Curly Turkey ⚞¡gobble!⚟ 04:58, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Chart names are not italicized, but Billboard, as the name of a magazine, is. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 00:22, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
I don't understand: it was a question, not a request—and who's being accused of having a conflict of interest? Curly Turkey ⚞¡gobble!⚟ 02:10, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Under the section "Most Weeks On The Chart" the album "HYMNS" by Tennessee Ernie Ford should be tied with "THE KING AND I" for 277 weeks on the charts. I would appreciate if you could add this title as it is a milestone. Thanks!

Bruce Springsteen[edit]

Bruce Springsteen has 11 (Albums) #1's, not 10.

how the charts work[edit]

How do these charts work? Are the R&B, rock, country, latin and christian music all within this chart if they have enough sales? If yes, was there a time when they did not?
I'm asking because Let It Loose (album) article claims it charted #6 on 200, #16 on Latin Pop Albums and #55 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. That would mean there were 15 better sellers in Latin Pop, 54 in R&B/hip hop but only 5 in all genres together. That is only possible if the genre-specific albums were not all eligible on the main chart, or the album somehow was not considered a latin/R&B album for a part of its chart run. 82.141.95.243 (talk) 04:12, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Italics[edit]

This is the first time I've really noticed how in this article (and title) it is "Billboard 200". But Billboard really should not be italicized because "Billboard 200" is the actual name of the chart in Billboard magazine. It's not italicized in any other website that I can see -- because it's really not necessary (and looks kind of dumb too). --Musdan77 (talk) 02:58, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
