Aye.. the "no-name" charts are just as BS as the "names" charts with indeed the difference of the prize money.. however getting in the "real" charts is also a whole lot more costly than getting into reverbnations charts.

I also remember that a few decades ago when releasing a single one of the mo's was to buy a ****load of them by the company or artist or set up through others so the single would hit the charts.

anybody got a figure of the cost of a promotion campaign for a number one billboard act? (posters, billboards, tv-spots, radio spots, magazines etc..)

And Portland makes a good point, in the world of free it is quite possible that some of those bands are on those charts because the community likes them.
