I think 500 millions, but I could be wrong.

No idea, actually.

much about their sales numbers hasn't been published, but if i recall correctly, it sold somewhere in the range of 17,000 in it's first week, around half that in it's second week

"Canadian college charts" sounds more like a chart of playlists for college radio stations... who tend to play "alternative" (ugh!) rock and stuff. I seriously doubt Sonic Youth would ever top the actual sales charts anywhere.

Sales charts don't mean much in this day anyway.... I think Coldplay sold the most albums of anyone on the planet in 2008 and even that was only 7 million worldwide.

I bet Canadians have really great self-esteem with all that positive reinforcement and encouragement..

I think you could pretty much translate those sales figures to USA/Europe/Japan/Australia/etc.



But OK then.... Canadians are the best SY fans in (their part of) the world!!!

The following are the sales designations for Canada:
GOLD 50,000 units
PLATINUM 100,000 units
DOUBLE PLATINUM 200,000 units
The following are the sales designations for the US:
GOLD 500,000 units
PLATINUM 1,000,000 units
DOUBLE PLATINUM 2,000,000 units

Rather Ripped sales to date, probably pretty high.

Rather Ripped probably solde between 100 thou and 130 thou copies.

sonic youth still have not ahd ANY album go gold in the USA, and that is 500,000 sales.

the closest ones were EJST&NS and Dirty.

Wrong. That's for CDs/LPs... NOT DVDs.

http://www.cria.ca/gold/1004_g.php



Video Certifications


 

October 2004 Platinum
10,000 Units Oscar Peterson
"Oscar Peterson A Night In Vienna"
Universal Music / Verve

 

Gold
5,000 Units Sonic Youth
"Corporate Ghost-The Videos: 1990-2002"
Universal Music / Geffen


you can search here:
http://www.cria.ca/cert_db_search.php
.. and find that none of their albums reached gold/platinum status in Canada. And I seriously doubt it happened anywhere else in the world either.
