In 1975 Boston rockers Aerosmith put rock and roll on notice with the release of their album “Toys in the Attic”.
Recently the RIAA – Recording Industry Association of America – have issued some updates on record sales, streaming, and digital downloads when it comes to “Toys in the Attic” and several of the band’s singles.
The RIAA has certified “Toys in the Attic” as nine times platinum for selling nine million copies in the Untied States. The album spawned the hit songs “Sweet Emotion” and “Walk This Way”. This was their third studio album and just missed the top 10 on the Billboard 200 Album chart when it peaked at number eleven.
Should “Toys in the Attic” sell one million more copies, it will have reached Diamond status for selling at least 10 million copies.
The RIAA has also certified “Sweet Emotion” as three times platinum for selling three million copies.
“Walk This Way” has reached double platinum status for selling two million copies.
The “Greatest Hits” album has already reached Diamond status and has been updated to reflect 12 million copies sold.
The “O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits” album has been certified three times platinum.
“Dream On” has been certified four time platinum.
“Pink” and “Jaded” have both reached gold status for selling at least 100,000 copies.
The power ballad “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” has been certified five times platinum.
