Led Zeppelin Are Second Highest Selling Band In U.S. History

Led Zeppelin weighed in with 10 new multiplatinum certifications in November, according to the RIAA.

Current aggregate certified U.S. sales of 63.8 million bring the English band to No. 2 on the list of all-time best-sellers, trailing the Beatles, whose certified tally is close to 100 million. Led Zeppelin leapfrogged Garth Brooks, whose certified sales total 62 million.

Also logging new highs in November were Shania Twain’s The Woman In Me and Mariah Carey’s Music Box, which both topped the 10 million mark. Metallica’s self-titled 1991 release also hit 10 million, leading a list of five of the band’s titles to hit new multiplatinum marks in the month.
