ARCHIE'S (ALMOST) TOTALLY IMAGINARY HIT PARADE

The Archies
North-American Chart History
1988-2099
featuring Stuffed Animal's rare promotional artwork
created for the album
Archie Country!
The singles and albums listed here are imaginary except where noted with an asterisk. That handful of releases really does exist, and those records really were chart hits back in the late 1960s! The song titles are also genuine; most will be familiar to the average '60s vinyl collector.

"St. Kevin, Apostrophe" tops charts in Asia.  These last two titles will also become Number One Country singles in North America; they are original songs written by members of the band.
