Those figures seem very low. I would have thought they would be much higher.

mmm, not dim about the starpower part, I was looking at that myself, but you should take a closer look at what the best selling album is

those numbers do seem quite low, it's been stated in a couple of publications that Goo sold more then 250,000 (mentioned as a benchmark number for Nevermind upon release, ultimately passing that mark 50 times over), also Dirty is believed to have sold over 400,000 units by now, as for other albums i have no idea

and if people were wondering otherwise, SY did indeed receive a Gold Album, for the track they did with Cypress Hill on the "Judgement Night'' sdtk, in an interview years ago, Steve mentioned he kept his hanging over the the toilet at his House

Those figures are terrible! Sonic Youth are one of those legendary, mythic bands, you would think Daydream Nation (the holy grail of indie albums) would have reached at a 5mil mark. SY seriously needs a new record company. I could understand the problems of selling a record like NYCG&F (which personally I love, but a fan record really), but an album like Sonic Nurse or Rather Ripped could easily have been as big as their early 90's sales peak....Incinerate, that sounds like a huge hit single, are Geffen just deaf?

Geffen are just corporate pigs. All they care about is money. Game sold 5million on The Documentary, and he released Doctor's Advocate, and it's been 2 months and only about 350,000 have been sold, and the beats are more diverse. They don't care if he mentioned geffen one time throughout the whole album, and talked about aftermath every 3rd line, as long as they make a lot of money on it.

They also got a Gold Record for the alt. version of "White Kross" that was on an NME 7" in 1987.

that NME single was gold just because there were so many copies of the magazine printed. In the UK to be GOLD, a single has to "sell" 400,000 copies.

weird how in the UK for an album to gold it has to sell 100 thousand copies. for a single to be gold it has to sell 400 thousand copies.




here is a link to the charts
