Today we have passed the magic 100K playcount milestone on last.fm, meaning people on last.fm have listened to Bankrupt songs over 100,000 times so far.
Our most popular release is by far Shorter Than Danny DeVito, which accounts for over half of the playcount with 52,683 scrobbles, and it features the 2 most popular Bankrupt songs, Record Store Renegade (19,237) and 18 Now (11,478).

Each of these songs is more popular than any other Bankrupt album: Bad Hair Day has 3,364 listeners, Rocket to Riot City has 2,526, Listen has 1,191, and Razor Wires And Neon Lights has only 688 (it deserves more).
