Great Green Day tastes success as their latest album "American Idiot" has been certified quadruple Platinum for U.S. shipments, sold for 4 million copies, by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). That completion surely makes the album as the second best-selling album of the band's career.
Certified triple Platinum is Jay-Z's 2003 set "The Black Album," while those reaching double Platinum include "Now! That's What I Call Music" compilation, Keith Urban's 2004 release "Be Here" and Styx's 1995 "Greatest Hits." In companion, there are Crossfade's self-titled Columbia debut, Gorillaz' "Demon Days," R. Kelly's "TP.3 Reloaded," Reba McEntire's "Room To Breathe," My Chemical Romance's "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge," "20th Century Masters: The Best of the Temptations" and the Ying Yang Twins' "U.S.A.: United States of Atlanta," all of which get single Platinum.
