More tough version of this quiz
Data compelled from February 24th, 2022
This is not taken from any official list, this is data directly taken from my own research. Listeners change all of the time so artists that may be higher now, probably weren't beforehand.
Only artists with official albums released before 2000 are counted. This disqualifies Coldplay, John Mayer, etc.
