I'm just curious, someone know their worldwide sales for each album?

All I know is that in canada:

S/T: less than 50 000 (not gold)
Ignition: between 50 000 and 100 000 (gold)
Smash: between 600 000 and 700 000 (6 X platinum)
Ixnay: between 200 000 and 300 000 (2 X platinum)
Americana: between 800 000 and 900 000 (8 X platinum)
Conspiracy: between 200 000 and 300 000 (2 X platinum)
Splinter: less than 50 000 (not gold)
Greatest Hits: between 100 000 and 200 000 (1 X platinum)
RFRG: less than 50 000 (not gold)
Video Collection: between 5 000 and 10 000 (gold)

In the United States:

S/T: less than 500 000 (not gold)
Ignition:between 500 000 and 1 million (gold)
Smash: between 6 and 7 millions (6 X platinum)
Ixnay: between 1 and 2 millions (1 X platinum)
Americana: between 5 and 6 millions (5 X platinum)
Conspiracy: between 1 and 2 millions (1 X platinum)
Splinter: between 500 000 and 1 million (gold)
Greatest Hits: between 500 000 and 1 million (gold)
RFRG: less than 500 000 (not gold)
Video Collection: gold (I don't know I many is gold in the U.S. for the video)

Smash and Americana are from far (I mean too far)their more popular album. It takes just one catchy pop song (Come Out And Play, Pretty Fly) too sold a lot of record.

It's funny to see that Smash have sold more than Americana in the U.S. and not in Canada.

Free?

It's nice to see that they sold more here in Canada (for most of the albums) than they did in the USA. Kinda odd, but nice to see that though. :D

For Canada you can go at www.cria.ca (canadian recording industry association). You go in the gold/platinum section and you click on searchable database. For your search you can only put the artist name.

For the U.S. it's the same but you go on www.riaa.com (recording industry association of america).
