Metal By Numbers 8/8: A Testament To Strong Album Sales

Metal By Numbers 7/19: P.O.D. Is Still Alive

Posted by on July 19, 2012

Ah, 2001. It was a simpler time. People still cared about rap-metal, and San Diego’s Payable On Death released their fourth album, Satellite – on September 11th.

Five years ago, the last Rush album, Snakes & Arrows, sold 93,000 copies. That’s why it’s even more impressive that in 2012, their new album has sold over 100,000 copies, matching the #2 peak that they reached back in 1993 with Counterparts. Is rock alive? Did their cameo in I Love You Man help out? Was it their […]
