But think of it this way...
smeared sold maybe 50 000 copies (max) and it's been out oh....almost 5
years. OCTA sold over 35 000 copies in 3 months. 500 up may of been get
airplay on the radio, but just the other day a friend of mine told me :"you
know, i really like that new Sloan video, but i think it's overplayed,
everytime i turn Muchmusic on it's on"
and both videos were in the countdown at the same time...
Everything you've done wrong debuted at #27...
they're bigger now - just face it
