Zia Records in Phoenix always seems to attract the hip hop and metal crowds. While this week is no exception with Eminem's The Recovery coming in at number 1, and both Ozzy Osbourne and Whitechapel making the list. Apparently the Phoenix kids still dig classic rock though, as Exile on Main St. and the new Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers record made the cut as well. (I wonder what would happen if the Tempe and Phoenix Zia kids switched stores for a week...)
