What's the "Score"?

By giving each track in the Hottest 100 a score based on the inverse of it's position number (ie. the track at 10th place gets a score of 90) a combination of all track scores gives an artist a Hot Score.

This doesn't mean that artist is "better" than another, it's just another interesting way of looking at the poll.
