    Go through your top 10 artists and add up the total number of fans. Divide that number by 10 then divide again by the number of Radiohead fans and that is apparently your 'Mainstream Percentage'.

    1. Hellogoodbye = 50344
    2. The Sounds = 32201
    3. The Postal Service = 214272
    4. Death Cab for Cutie = 249244
    5. All Time Low = 4670

    8. Taking Back Sunday = 130305
    9. Head Automatica = 54307
    10. All American Rejects = 110279

    Total = 864346
    Divide by 10 = 86434.6
    Radiohead fans = 352048
    Answer =0.245519 = 25%
