They are several sources for all those numbers. They are all estimates, or calculations to be more precise thanks to certifications, sales figures and charts informations. I have hours of work to give you the source for each numbers, but you can ask for more informations about one number or an other.

In its first week on the Billboard Charts, Nov. 25, 2006, Live, Tonight, Sold Out DVD has debuted in the following categories:

Billbaord Comprehensive Videos: #4
Top Music Videos: #4

I do not know the sales numbers. If anyone knows this please post. I do know that the original 1994
VHS Live, Tonight, Sold Out went platinum selling over 100,000 copies. Unlike music albums which require 1, 000,000 to go platinum, videos or DVD's only require 100,000

According to Billboard, Nirvana had 5 Number 1 hits on the Modern Rock charts and 1 Number 1 hit on the mainstream rock chart. What the difference is between the two charts I have no idea. If anyone can fill me in between the differnce of Modern and Mainstream that would be great. Nirvana had 4 songs chart on the Billboard 100 which is the "pop" chart of singles. Surprisingly, You Know Your Right was #1 on both the Mainstream Rock chart and Modern Rock chart for four weeks, making it the most successful Nirvana Rock song on the charts. Goes to show you how much the charts mean. You Know Your Right is a good song, but better than Smells Like Teen Spirit?

is ridiculus that they released almost more albums after Kurt death than before.
please stop nirvana releases!!

great band, a bit overrated after Kurt death but
Nevermind is the icon album of '90, in Utero a great and brave album.

I do not know the sales numbers. If anyone knows this please post. I do know that the original 1994
VHS Live, Tonight, Sold Out went platinum selling over 100,000 copies. Unlike music albums which require 1, 000,000 to go platinum, videos or DVD's only require 100,000
Do you have the Chart positions for the VHS release in 1994 ?

It has been since Dec. 2005 since Nirvana's Soundscan numbers have been updated. Anyone with the latest figures? Im curious to see how many of each album Nirvana continues to sell each year. Thanks

allaplgies wrote:When I added up the soundscan figures you gave for Nirvana it added up to 24,185,000. You have listed 23,884,000. Did I make a mistake somewhere. Also these new figures you give seem to disagree with Hanboo's post where he listed that Nirvana sold 543,000 in 2006 total in soundscan. Here it adds up to more than that if you compare to last years numbers. Just curious...let me know

2004 2004 With the Lights Out - 334,000 - 925,000

I think this figure is the problem. It indicates the box set selling 500,000 in 2006!

I believe it is a misprint in the metalsludge forum and it looks as if it should be

625,000.

All the totals would then fit.

This box set is close to going 2xPlatinum meaning 667,000 copies shipped.

Hey guys I thought I do my yearly update on Nirvana sales information. The 2006 Soundscan numbers are in and Nirvana continues to be an influential force in music today. Even though no new musical album was released in 2006, Nirvana sold 554,000 in the United States, which includes 143,000 for the album Nevermind. In 2005, Nirvana sold about 814,000 albums and 152,000 of Nevermind. In 2004, Nirvana sold 1,093,000 albums in the United States. Nirvana also continues to rack up impressive sales worldwide during 2006. Nirvana sold about 200,000 albums in the U.K; including 86,000 copies of Nevermind, which continues to reenter the charts on a regular basis. Nevermind has now sold over 1.8 million copies in the U.K and Nirvana has sold over 5.207 million albums in the U.K. Nevermind also continues to be in the top 3 in catalogue sales in France so far in 2007.

Nirvana did not recieve any new R.I.A.A certification updates. Many of Nirvana albums are overdue to be certified. At the bottom I have listed some reasonable guesses as to where Nirvana's albums are in regards to RIAA certification. To date Nirvana has sold approximately 60 million albums worldwide. Nirvana chart information for albums and singles is earlier in this thread.

Bleach: Approaching 2x platinum

Nevermind: At least 11x platinum if not 12x

Incesticide: Platinum

In Utero: Approaching 6x Platinum if not already there

Unplugged: Approaching 6x platinum if not already there

Wiskah:
Platinum

Nirvana: Appraoching 2x platinum

Box Set: Almost 2x platinum 333,333 counts for platinum for box set

So in total Nirvana officially have shipped over 25 million albums in the United States and over 60 million worldwide

Updated Nirvana Sales as of Jan. 2007

Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Albums
Bleach: 1 million as of 2/27/95 Platinum
Nevermind: 10 million as of 3/24/99 Diamond

In Utero: 5 million as of 10/25/96 5x Platinum
MTV Unplugged: 5 million as of 9/05/97 5x Platinum
Muddy Banks 1 million as of 12/06/96 Platinum
NIRVANA: 1 million as of 12/03/02 Platinum
WTLO: 1 million as of 12/17/04 Platinum
Sliver: Has not been certified

allaplgies some of the jan 06 sales were not updated at this time. I mean, Incesticide has not sold 77,000 copies in 2006, the 1,196,000 sales figures was the last known as of jan 06, but was surely from 2003 or 2004.

Also, Hanboo's totals always take everything in account, even interviews CDs or whatever, which can explain a small difference.

Thank you very much for the information. I understand now and I'll assume that other albums may be like that as well. Thanks:)
