And now for what the fans have really been waiting for... let's take a look at the results by year....

1990: 13
1991: 9
1992: 11
1993: 15
1994: 16
1995: 11
1996: 12
1997: 11
1998: 5
1999: 9

Unsurprisingly, 1994 ended up as the big winner with a whopping 16 jams, although somewhat surprising that it only lost out to '93 by 1 single jam. Congrats to both years. You have earned your place among the mighty titans of rock.

Shame on 1998 for a somewhat unsurprisingly dismal turnout, although 5 isn't bad (and better than 1986 in the 80's Jams which only presented 2 jams). However, congrats are somewhat owed to 1999 who we suspected would have an equally unimpressive number to '98. A good list, overall.
