Metallica's 'Black Album' Hits Historic 500th Week on Billboard 200 Chart
By Keith Caulfield | September 20, 2018

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the rest of the Billboard 200:

— Metallica, Metallica – No. 137 — Metallica’s self-titled 1991 album (often referred to as The Black Album, due to its stark, black album cover) scores its 500th nonconsecutive week on the Billboard 200 chart. It is now one of only four albums with 500 weeks or more on the tally.

Among all albums -- since the chart began publishing on a regular weekly basis in 1956 -- Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon holds the record for the most weeks on the chart: 937. It’s followed by Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and The Wailers (539), Journey’s Greatest Hits (539) and Metallica’s Metallica (500).

Metallica’s self-titled album marked the rock band’s first No. 1 on the Billboard 200, when it debuted atop the list dated Aug. 31, 1991. The set spent four weeks on top, and marked the first of so far six chart-toppers for the group.

The album continues to hold the record as the biggest selling album in Nielsen Music history, with 16.83 million copies sold in the U.S. (since Nielsen began tracking data in 1991).

Billboard published their Year-End charts.
Here's an overview of Metallica's performance (starting with the most important one :)):

Sales:
The Black Album: 48 (last year at 44)
Hardwired...: 69 (last year at 2)
Master Of Puppets: 78
(...And Justice For All and Ride The Lightning will certainly be in the top 200)

Their US indoor tour will start again next week until the beginning of February with gigs in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio (2x).
Before this they will play the Chris Cornell tribute concert in LA next Wednesday.

According to Buzzangle Metallica was the 4th best-selling album artist (i.e. pure sales) in the US in 2018, selling some 540000 copies.

Looking at oldbloke's precious estimations we know that their US sales were quite a bit higher last year:

The Black Album: 183k
Hardwired...: 171k (mostly ticket bundle sales)
Master Of Puppets: 109k
...And Justice For All: 98k
Ride The Lightning: 73k

So already 634k for these 5 albums.
Adding the sales of their Garage Days EP re-issue (about 40k a few months ago), Kill 'em All (around 50k?) and the minor sales of Load and Reload (both regularly appearing in the lower ends of Buzzangle's Metal top 50), Garage Inc., S&M, St. Anger and Death Magnetic, their total US album sales were most likely somewhere in between 750k and 800k in 2018.

Here's their weekly chart overview (and some year-end chart appearances):

USA:
Sales:
The Black Album: 71 -> 54
…And Justice For All: 97 (re-entry)
SPS:
The Black Album: 165 -> 144
Catalog Sales:
The Black Album: 22 -> 11
…And Justice For All: 49 -> 33
Master Of Puppets: 49 (re-entry)

UK:

…And Justice For All: 27 -> 36

GERMANY:

U.S. Vinyl Album Sales Grew 15% in 2018, Led by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie & Panic! at the Disco
1/12/2019 by Keith Caulfield

Vinyl album sales in the U.S. hit their 13th consecutive year of growth, with 'Guardians' being the top-selling LP and "Yellow Submarine” the biggest vinyl single.

Vinyl album sales continue to be a bright spot among an otherwise bleak album sales picture. 16.8 million vinyl albums were sold in 2018, according to Nielsen Music (up 14.6 percent) — marking the 13th consecutive year of growth for the format. 16.8 million is also a new yearly high for vinyl album sales since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

Comparatively, overall album sales (vinyl LP, CD, digital, cassette, etc.) in 2018 fell 17.7 percent to 141 million.

Vinyl LP sales accounted for 11.9 percent of all album sales in 2018 (16.8 million of 141 million). In 2017, the format comprised 6.5 percent of album sales.

Nielsen Music’s 2018 tracking year ran from Dec. 29, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2019. Due to a quirk in the calendar, there were 53 weeks in 2018, instead of the usual 52. So, for 2018 volume comparisons to 2017, a corresponding 53-week period is used by Nielsen Music for 2017: Dec. 30, 2016 through Jan. 4, 2018. Numbers in this story are rounded.

Perhaps not surprisingly, vinyl LPs were 19.1 percent of all physical album sales (CDs, LPs, cassettes, etc.) in 2018. That’s a new Nielsen-era record share for the once-dormant format, up from 14 percent in 2017.

Vinyl’s growing share of the physical album market isn’t shocking, considering CD album sales continue to falter.

In total, physical album sales equaled 88 million in 2018, down 15.8 percent. And of that sum, CD album sales were 70.7 million — down 20.9 percent.

The CD format continues to be the leader for all album purchases, while the digital format is the runner-up with 53.4 million digital albums sold in 2018 (down 20.7 percent).

TOP-SELLING VINYL ARTISTS: The top-selling vinyl albums artist in 2018 was the Beatles, with 321,000 copies sold of their catalog on vinyl. Their biggest seller was Abbey Road, which finishes the year as the No. 4 largest-seller, with 76,000 copies. The Fab Four also have two more titles among the year’s top 15-sellers: their self-titled (White Album) is No. 11 (56,000) and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is No. 13 (50,000).

The top 10-biggest selling vinyl acts of the year are rounded out mostly by classic and veteran rock acts:

1. The Beatles (321,000)
2. Pink Floyd (177,000)
3. David Bowie (150,000)
4. Panic! at the Disco (148,000)
5. Fleetwood Mac (139,000)
6. Led Zeppelin (138,000)
7. Michael Jackson (131,000)
8. Jimi Hendrix (119,000)
9. Metallica (116,000)
10. Queen (113,000)
