Metallica Reaches Third In Sales During SoundScan Era

Since 1991, Nielsen SoundScan has been keeping tabs on music sales, and since that time, Metallica has sold 54.26 million albums, enough to etch themselves in the third position behind Garth Brooks and The Beatles.

For 23 years we’ve been given the knowledge of how much artists sell left and right, thanks to Billboard and SoundScan. For Metallica to climb that ladder into third is a great achievement, as the next milestone is over 11 million album sales away.

The band may just be able to break that milestone one day, and a new album would certainly help. New Metallica material is expected within the next year or so, and new material is already being played live. Stay tuned for more updates, and congrats to the metal legends on this achievement.
