CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // November 16 – 22, 2020

CJAM favorites Self-Cut Bangs are the most recent challenger to CJAM: Live Off The Floor‘s domination of our weekly top 30 chart. Like all those who came before it, they were ultimately defeated in what can only be described as… one release having slightly more plays than the other?

Anyways, I’m putting the Self-Cut Bangs album cover because it’s well deserved (and the news page having the same album cover over and over and over is an aesthetic nightmare)
