Metallica Rules The Billboard Top 200


In just a three-day sales window, Metallica’s “Death Magnetic” (Warner Bros.) sold nearly half a million copies and tops The Billboard 200. The band’s first studio album since 2003 moved 490,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. “Death Magnetic” hit shelves on Friday instead of last Tuesday in order to accommodate a worldwide release date.

Metallica is the first group to see five of its albums bow at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. Previously, the act was tied with the Beatles, U2 and the Dave Matthews Band, with four each. It is also Metallica’s fifth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 and its seventh release to start with more than 300,000 since 1991, when Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data.

So what you are telling me is that Metallica is truly the greatest band of all time as voted by the people through album sales? Wow and congratulations!
