The most common passwords!

32 Million passwords were analyzed at and these were the top 20
To put it a different perspective, if a hacker used the first 116 password on each account, they would break into 5% of the accounts. With the first 5000 passwords tried on each account, they'd break into 20% of the accounts!
Its so much more meaningful for me to see real life data.
