"Sopranos" Fans Don't Stop Downloading

6/18/2007 1:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

While a lot of people were upset by last week's ambiguous and abrupt "Sopranos" series finale, there's one group that couldn't have asked for a better ending -- Journey!
Steve Perry and Sopranos
After the '80s band's power ballad, "Don't Stop Believin," played in the background during the last minutes of the episode, fans caused downloads of the song to jump 482%. Don't stop, indeed! The karaoke staple even made it to #1 on iTunes Music Rock Chart -- not bad for a song the same age as Jamie-Lynn Sigler aka the parking-challenged Meadow Soprano.

The 1981 arena-rock anthem is no stranger to contemporary audiences, having been featured in key scenes in Charlize Theron's "Monster" and in 2005 episodes of "Family Guy" and "Laguna Beach." Steve Perry's mortgage thanks you!

NOT a fan of TMZ    

Believe it or not - this was my High School graduation song!! Our "class song" for the event... Someone didn't proof-read the lyrics!! "Singer in a smokey room. Smell of wine and cheap perfume."??!! That's encouraging for sure!!

I bet other options were:
"Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap"
"Cocaine"
"Humpty Dance"
