Linkin Park: 'Hybrid Theory' Reaches 10 Million In US Sales
Linkin Park's "Hybrid Theory" album becomes the latest release to join the 10 million-sellers club, as it crosses the mammoth threshold this week. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the band's debut set - released in 2000 - sold another 3,000 this week, bringing its to-date total in the U.S. to just over 10 million. It's the 20th album to sell 10 million since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. Since 1991, the highest selling album - according to SoundScan - is Metallica's self-titled 1991 release, which has moved 15.8 million. Shania Twain's "Come On Over" is in second place with 15.5 million and Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" is in third with 14.8 million. "Hybrid Theory" debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 chart dated Nov. 11, 2000 and eventually peaked at No. 2 on Jan. 12, 2002. "Hybrid Theory" also happens to be one of only four 10-million sellers that did not reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Thanks for the report to Billboard.
