Manics Singles Rankings Update

The band's own personal rankings are out. You've seen mine now they're showing me theirs. Charts and graphs were to follow, but a simple list will suffice, as I've no idea how to do a graph that a) successfully compares the relationship between my chart and that of theirs (a timeline would have been very interesting, highlighting their massive bias towards their recent material) and b) doesn't look shit. This was the best I could do:

Anyway, for the ease of your eyes, below is their list from top-to-bottom (which has the unexpected additional appearances of 'Strip It Down' and 'Suicide Alley' - not included in mine as I expected them to merely rate the singles from 'National Treasures'. My rankings, which I pimped out to buggery to the tune of around 300 views so far (!) are here.
