Bad Omens’ “Just Pretend” Certified Gold In The United States


The breakout viral success of Bad Omens‘ 2022 track “Just Pretend” has officially resulted in some hardware. That song rose to prominence on TikTok and quickly elevated the band’s profile in the process, with many of their shows since having sold out.

The RIAA have now officially certified that single gold as of today, July 12th, for streams and sales within the United States. This award marks their first gold certification in the territory.

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.

A music video for the song was released last month and can be found below.
