Every book about the UK charts has lists about the artists with the most No.1s, the one hit wonders and the like. But spare a thought for those artists that have released a large number of singles and who have never made the UK Top 10. Funnily enough there are more often than not rock bands. Saxon’s best performing single, And The Band Played On, got to No.12 in 1981. Having already released five singles that failed to crack the ten they took their own words to heart and had another nine records that barely even troubled the Top.30. The Alarm had 16 records none of which got higher than No.17. The Mission had one more non big hit; their best agonisingly got to No.11. Thunder have had eighteen hits, the best of which got to No.18. The most frustrated of all must be AC/DC who had 28 records that failed to reach the Top.10, although they did have 7 that made the Top.20. But all was not lost for Australia’s finest. They had 9 UK Top.10 albums, including the No.1 Back In Black in 1980.
