                    Congratulations. "Black in black" has become the best-selling hard rock album in the US in history.
                    Led Zeppelin IV was last certified 13 years ago (January 30, 2006). This album should also already be 25x Platinum certified.
                    In addition, the Led Zeppelin Mothership album should have been certified 4x Platinum long ago.
                    Why does RIAA not issue current sales certificates for Led Zeppeln albums for many years? Very strange policy.

                      They contact the RIAA. File the paperwork. Pay a fee. The RIAA issues the certification.

                        The team manager should probably submit such an application? I won't do that? :-)

                              AC/DC’s ‘Back In Black’ Becomes Third Studio Album Certified 25x Platinum
                              by Bryan Rolli

                              MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - DECEMBER 06: Brian Johnson (L) and Angus Young (R) AC/DC perform during ... [+]WIREIMAGE
                              AC/DC’s Back in Black is an album born out of tragedy. It very nearly didn’t exist at all, yet it went on to become a classic rock touchstone and one of the bestselling albums of all time, marking a creative and commercial zenith in the band’s discography. Now, the Australian rockers’ seminal 1980 record holds the distinction of being just the third studio album in history to be certified 25x platinum by the RIAA.

                              At the dawn of the ‘80s, AC/DC were riding high on the success of 1979’s Highway to Hell, which became their global breakthrough and granted them their first platinum album in the United States. But their plans for a follow-up album were cut short when lead singer Bon Scott died on Feb. 19, 1980 after choking to death on his own vomit. (The official cause of death on his death certificate was listed as “acute alcoholic poisoning.”) Scott’s bandmates immediately began auditioning for a new singer, and less than six weeks later, they hired English singer Brian Johnson of glam rock band Geordie.

                              AC/DC wrote and recorded Back in Black over the course of two months and released the album on July 25, 1980—almost a year to the day since releasing Highway to Hell. It became an instant global success, topping the U.K. Albums chart and peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, while spawning the hit singles “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Hells Bells” and the title track. Its follow-up album, 1981’s For Those About to Rock We Salute You, topped the Billboard 200. Back in Black became an epochal hard rock album, and its ensuing world tour solidified AC/DC’s status as one of the biggest bands in the world—a status that endures today, as the group still packs stadiums around the globe.

                              Back in Black is just the third studio album in history to earn a 25x platinum certification, joining the ranks of Michael Jackson’s Thriller (33x platinum) and the Eagles’ Hotel California (26x platinum). (The Eagles’ Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) still holds the overall crown at 38x platinum.) Back in Black’s last RIAA certification came in 2007, when it was certified 22x platinum. With its latest milestone, it leapfrogs over the Beatles’ White Album, Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II, Led Zeppelin’s Led Zeppelin IV and Pink Floyd’s The Wall.

                              These days, AC/DC looks quite different than it did during the Back in Black era, as guitarist Angus Young is the only remaining original member. Johnson bowed out of the Rock or Bust Tour in March 2016 due to hearing issues, and Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose filled in for the remaining shows. However, Johnson is rumored to be rejoining the group along with drummer Phil Rudd for a new album that will reportedly include tracks from rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who died in 2017. If that’s the case and a tour follows, AC/DC fans may get to see the musicians responsible for one of rock’s biggest and most beloved albums join forces yet again.

                                AC/DC’S ‘BACK IN BLACK’ CERTIFIED 25 TIMES PLATINUM
                                by CHAD CHILDERS December 9, 2019

                                While there's been plenty of discussion of late about AC/DC's future, their past continues to fare quite well. According to recent chart data from the RIAA, the band's iconic 1980 album has now surpassed 25 million in certified units/sales in the U.S.

                                It didn't take long for the album to make its mark, reaching gold and then platinum status in October of 1980. It reached 5 times platinum status in October 1984 and was diamond certified (10 million sold) in October of 1990. Back in Black reached 20 times platinum in June 2004 and now surpassed 25 times platinum as of the RIAA certification on Dec. 6, 2019.

                                Back in Black was the first album to feature Brian Johnson as vocalist after the death of Bon Scott. It included such classic tracks as "Hells Bells," "You Shook Me All Night Long," the title track, "Shoot to Thrill" and "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution."

                                As for the band's future, there has been talk that the group has welcomed back Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd, while utilizing some of the guitar work of the late Malcolm Young as they work toward a new album. No further details have been revealed.
