Wow. I've never really thought about how many albums Anthrax has sold. I thought Among the Living sold a little more.

SoundScan numbers do not reflect the number of units sold before 1991.

So any numbers provided prior to 1991 may not be reliable right?

Among, State and POT are all past gold. I'm The Man is platinum (all U.S.). They sold the bulk of their copies pre Sound Scan. Fistful, Armed and STD have also sold way more than those figures. STD sold that many in 1986. Currently we're right around 10 million worldwide in total.

Aren't we forgetting something?
Sound of White Noise

I always thought that SoWN is the best selling Anthrax album, 1.3 mil. in the US alone. I don't know where I got that, but it seems so real to me...

TELL ME IT IS TRUE.

I thought the original figures posted at the start of this thread were a little wrong.

I'm The Man - pretty impressive to go platinum considering that song was originally done as a b side of a single in Europe !!!

The band's commercial peak was in 1991.

S.O.D.'s Speak English or Die has gone platinum - if you look around hard enough, you'll find the platinum edition of that CD released by Megaforce.

Among is certified platinum, which is over 1 million sales in the U.S., if you didn't know that.

ATL isn't platinum? I could've sworn that it was. Hmph. Hell, I'm on my 3rd copy.
