  1. Is it me or did every single one of Nick’s top 20 make your combined top 25? What does that mean?

    1. The only one of mine that didn’t make it is Chimaira. It’s just where the numbers fell.

      Also, I will post my “honorable mentions” soon. Those are the next 10 or so I just didn’t feel like organizing into a list.
