Final = 0.0075602404010645965293712062109 = 0.76% mainstream-ity

I thought I'd get to at least 1%, seems not mainstream enough... and I'm probably lower since artists like Kaito (no, not the vocaloid) and Mina (no, not the Italian singer) have a combined listener count therefore a higher listener count. ;)

Hmm, now that I notice, maybe The Beatles have the most scrobbles, but less listeners? In that case...

The Beatles - 284,476,638 plays (2,360,675 listeners)

0.01045548413059823991019517722685 = 1.05%, yay, 1%.

Special kudos to zygulpy from where I copied the entry structure after checking one of my childhood artists I started re-listening to, Streetlight Manifesto, after I dug out two of their albums, hehu. Keasbey Nights is cool. =)
