Album Sales?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody has the official sales numbers of Linkin Park's albums and singles. I don't think wikipedia is a good source for this info.

revives this topic since i wonder about it too.

 

let's start with Wikipedia, tell me what to fix:

 

Hybrid Theory - 24,000,000

Meteora - 16,000,000

Minutes To Midnight - 8,000,000

A Thousand Suns - 2,000,000

Living Things - 1,700,000

 

Reanimation - 2,000,000

Collision Course - 5,000,000

 

Live In Texas - ?

German Wikipedia says:

 

Live in Texas - 1.410.000

Road To Revolution - 115.000

 

But I don't know, if this is just the German statistic or the worldwide one...

Going solely off of RIAA certifications, here are the U.S. numbers as of their most recent update (keep in mind, artists have to pay a fee to the RIAA to have their catalog re-certified, which probably why some of these albums haven't been re-certified in a long time - Meteora certainly didn't sell 4 million copies in its first year and then not break a million in the 9 years since, for example).

 

Albums:

Hybrid Theory - 10,000,000 (as of 1/7/2005)

Reanimation - 1,000,000 (as of 9/6/2002)

Meteora - 4,000,000 (as of 2/26/2004)

Live in Texas - 1,000,000 (as of 11/29/2007)

Collision Course - 1,000,000 (as of 7/19/2005)

Minutes to Midnight - 2,000,000 (as of 11/15/2007)

A Thousand Suns - 500,000 (as of 1/11/2011)

Living Things - 500,000 (as of 4/3/2013)

 

Singles (these only reflect digital sales):

In the End - 500,000 (as of 8/18/2008)

Numb - 1,000,000 (as of 10/1/2009)

What I've Done - 2,000,000 (as of 11/13/2008)

Bleed it Out - 1,000,000 (as of 8/25/2009)

Shadow of the Day - 1,000,000 (as of 6/11/2008)

Leave Out All the Rest - 500,000 (as of 10/5/2009)

New Divide - 2,000,000 (as of 2/14/2011)

The Catalyst - 500,000 (as of 8/3/2010)

Waiting For the End - 500,000 (as of 4/7/2011)

Mike seems pretty sure that the figure is 18m for Hybrid Theory

maybe the 24,000,000 includes digital copies, and they're talking about physical copies?

Holy shit this takes me back.

 

Anyways rhose RIAA numbers for albums are just shipped and not the number sold, for example Hybrid Theory went diamond in 2005 but didn't actually sell 10 million copies until recently.

I know, but short of being an industry insider who actually has access to Nielsen SoundScan numbers, the RIAA certifications are probably the best numbers we have to go on. The shipped vs. sold numbers are a lot closer these days than they used to be too, a lot of stores don't stock a ton of copies of one CD at any given time, except if it's a new release that's selling like crazy.
