Hollywood Undead Awarded Eleven New Multi-Platinum, Gold, Etc. Certifications In The United States


Amid some apparently long overdue accounting, the RIAA have just unleased a new wave of certifications for Los Angeles, CA-based rap rock collective Hollywood Undead. September 19th served as the certification date for eleven of the band’s singles. While the majority of those were gold certifications, two tracks were awarded gold, platinum and 2x multi-platinum certifications in one fell swoop.

First up were the following certifications for the below tracks from the band’s platinum-certified 2008 debut album “Swan Songs“:

  • Undead” (gold / platinum / 2x multi-platinum)
  • Everywhere I Go” (gold / platinum / 2x multi-platinum)
  • No. 5” (gold)
  • Young” (gold)
  • Black Dahlia” (gold)
  • City” (gold)

Elsewhere, the songs “Hear Me Now“, “Comin’ In Hot” and “Bullet“, which served as first, the fourth and, the sixth singles respectively from the band’s gold-certified 2011 sophomore album “American Tragedy,” all notched up gold certifications. Furthermore, “We Are“, the first single from their 2013 album “Notes From The Underground” also went gold. The title track to the group’s 2015 album “Day Of The Dead” nabbed a gold certification as well.

A platinum album/single in the United States represents 1,000,000 units, while gold signifies 500,000 units. Outside of traditional physical/digital sales, the certifications factor in digital streams/downloads with 10 permanent track downloads counting as 1 unit and 1500 on-demand audio/video streams from a particular album also counting as as a unit.
