Just a little something I whipped up as an 11 year old.  Another band that had many hits before 91X started doing countdowns. Between 1980-82, the band had eleven songs in KROQ's year-end countdowns and that was after some of their biggest hits like "Message In A Bottle" and "Roxanne".  If you added those KROQ points to their 91X points, they'd be at #32 instead of #93.

93. THE POLICE 39. King of Pain, 29. Wrapped Around Your Finger, 17. Every Breath You Take, 15. Synchronicity II (1983) 41. Don’t Stand So Close ’86 (86) 319/5

GEEK NOTES
Psychedelic Furs have the most songs by any act not in the top 91 with nine.  That’s more songs than 23 of the acts in the top 91.
Florence & The Machine had two songs in 2012’s countdown worth 100 points.  They missed making the top 91 by one point.
Gorillaz are the highest ranking act with a #1 song not in the top 91.
The Police and Dave Matthews Band were both in the top 91 acts of all-time as of last year.  Two newer groups pushed past them, one at #81 and another all the way to #53.  One of them tripped Dave Matthews on his way down for good measure.
As a result, the Police join Counting Crows as the only two acts that had four songs chart in a single year that are not in the top 91.

ON TO #71-91
