As of the year 2009, Metallica’s, “Black Album”, became the best-selling CD of the SoundScan-era. To date, the black album has sold 15,689,000 copies. That’s the more than the Beatles, Elvis, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, the Eagles, Pink Floyd, Guns-n-Roses, Nirvana, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain…you get the point.
As a old-school Metallica fan since, “Kill ‘em All”, it’s pretty cool to read that. Think about it. A Thrash Metal/Heavy Metal band out sold EVERYONE.
Heavy Metal now rules the universe (well, as of 2009 anyway)! Thanks to the biggest of “the big four” of American Thrash Metal.
