Who knows what bizarre adventures our Top 30 bring this month? Last time, we were mesmerized by the story behind that Burzum CD that sold for $1,500. Wild, isn’t it? Curiously enough, this month another record by him is the second most expensive item sold in the Discogs Marketplace. Paying $2,272.00 for a 12″ with three songs isn’t exactly our definition of bang for your buck, but to each their own.

We feel like it’s starting to fade away at this point, but the cultural impact Bohemian Rhapsody’ theatrical release was strong. The movie helped millions of new fans to connect with the already-huge British band Queen and put them back in the spotlight. In February, this very special edition of News Of The World sold for $1,592.00. What’s the catch? We’ll let you find out for yourself.

Paying attention to the rest of the chart, we see a solid mix of artists who will most likely ring the bell – Pink Floyd, Bathory, The Smiths, Darkthrone – with plenty of soul/funk singles. The latest is an unstoppable trend mostly fueled by collectors of the genre and DJs.

But what will really be remembered about this chart is its number one. For the first time ever on Discogs, the bebut single by The Sonics has been sold. We know what you’re thinking: That can’t be possible! Well, these are not The Sonics you know.

After a bit of research, and thanks to the community’s amazing contributions to the Discogs Database, we found The Sonics in question. Formed in Bangkok in the mid-’60s, we managed to find a Facebook page compiling some pictures from the band. And if you want to know the price of the single You Don’t Hear Me / Marshall, just scroll down to the bottom of the list.
