Linkin Park Have Just Earned Their Second Diamond Certification In The United States


Nü-metal stars Linkin Park have been awarded their second diamond record in the United States. “In The End“, the final single from their 12x multi-platinum debut album “Hybrid Theory“, is their first single to cross that threshold. The RIAA certified it diamond (10x multi-platinum) today, February 27th.

It had last been certified 4x multi-platinum back in August of 2017. “In The End” remains the band’s most popular track to date, having racked up over a billion streams individually on both YouTube and Spotify.

In a move that should no doubt help their already staggering catalog performance, the band’s new greatest hits collection “Papercuts“, is on track for an April 12th release.

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.
