Jango Airplay Top 10

We're back again with the Top 10 bands on Jango Airplay based on their PopScore from last week. And remember, each band needs to have at least 100 paid plays on at least one song to receive a PopScore for the week.

This week it looks like For This Cause held the top spot while there are a few new faces in the Top 10 as well. Check them out and show some support in the comments.

Is there a reward for making the top 10? Are your songs submitted somewhere differently for recognition?

Jango: you've really got to start sharing some PopScore information. As it stands, you've crafted the world's only *purely abstract* ranking system. While that is something in itself, those of us being ranked would like there to be at least SOME meaning to our weekly grade. A percentile is meaningless if the size of the total population is unknown.

But I'm getting ahead of myself:

Regardless of total population, ranking anything as "somewhere between 101-1000" is kind of like saying, "you're ranked somewhere between 101-1000." Actually, it's exactly like it -- what a showcase for your fancy math and science and formulas! I think you're looking through the wrong end of your microscope!

The only clues to our ranking that we have to go on are # of free plays we receive, but I've yet to see hide/hair of the 250/500/1000 payout plan for top 1000. Meanwhile, my 85-95 consistently nets me 100 plays for "achieving" my PopScore. Which plan are we on, a new version of the old plan or a new version of the new one?

Confused? Get in line (there are approx. 1-10000 people ahead of you, please plan accordingly).

I just dont get how you can have 500 something fans since July and get the number one spot! I am not putting down the artists, the system for rating however, needs some kind of "tweaking". Perhaps we should all just not pay attention to the JANGO Top 10 and enjoy the fans instead. I find them to be loyal and true. I wish I could move them all over to the my facebook page and count them as fans there!!!!
