18 Dethklok (112,556 listeners)
19 Deep Purple (1,094,910 listeners)
20 The Doors (1,599,983 listeners)


STEP TWO: Calculate the total listeners of these artists.

TOTAL: 13,410,372


STEP THREE: Find the average of this total by dividing by 20.

AVERAGE: 670518.6


STEP FOUR: Divide this figure by the total number of listeners for the top scrobbled artist on Last.fm.

Top artist: Coldplay (2,819,217 listeners)

MAINSTREAM: 0.2378385913535566790353491767395


STEP FIVE: Finally, multiply this by 100 and round off to get your mainstream percentage.

MAINSTREAM PERCENTAGE: 23.78385913535566790353491767395


My listening habits are 23.78% mainstream

Whew, that's a relief. I was afraid it would be much higher, LOL!
