Pop Album Chart : Megadeth: 'Countdown' to No. 1?

July 24, 1992|DENNIS HUNT

The heavy-metal band Megadeth stormed onto the Billboard magazine chart, with "Countdown to Extinction" landing at No. 2. Could this be the album that unseats Billy Ray Cyrus' "Some Gave All," which has been on top for eight straight weeks? Don't count on it. Cyrus' album seems to be immune to challengers.

* Currently creating a stir on the Lollapalooza tour is the rock band Ministry, which has never made a big splash on the pop album chart--but is making one now. Its "Psalm 69" premiered at No. 27.
