PS= 5-6 mil.
HoBL= [sign in to see URL] mil.
S&M= 1.5 mil.

These figures are from the time these records were released or some time after.
Have this from a trustworthy sourse.




Yep- guilty as charged emoticon

Proud to be American- just not proud all of the crap that passes for music here.
Good to see RHCPs' and Tool topping the charts currently.

Nationalism is lame. I see no reason to take pride in whatever geographical location I happened to be spawned in. There are better things to be proud of than the patch of land and government you were born into through no doing of your own.

These are the sales I heard too. But nothing fra after that, exept that and Purpendicular sold more than TBRO and CHOHW together. So that should be more than one million.

But did'nt Payne say Bananas sold something like 500 000 in a interview somewhere...

Yes he did... over 500000 copies or so.
They do sell good in Germany, Russia and fair in rest of Europe.
Don't know about Japan these days though.

There is no way HOBL broke a million. Mabye now, after 20 [sign in to see URL] not.

Everything else did squat.

This band has been a day late and a dollar short, never striking the iron when it was hot.



According to the TBRO bio in 1993,

US sales alone was 950000...

Why isn't HoBL awarded with a goldrecord in that case? In America..
