It is actually kind of amazing, if you think about it.
Metallouca’s Lulu falls off the chart after two weeks, yet, an album Led Zeppelin released forty years ago somehow managed to outsell that piece of diseased-old-dog’s soupy shit.
According to Billboard.biz, Led Zeppelin’s brilliant and iconic 1971 album Led Zeppelin IV sold around 3,600 last week in the United States, for some fucking reason.
That was enough to get the band back on the Top 200 albums charts at #166. That is a sorry statement on the music industry, folks.
Led Zeppelin IV is available for $5.99 at AmazonMP3 and $6.99 at iTunes. Physical sales of the album shit up 273-percent, and downloads of the record spiked 654-percent.
Led Zeppelin IV stands as one of the most influential albums in hard rock and heavy metal history, and is Led Zeppelin’s third best selling album, will more than 23 million copies purchased.
Holy fuck, that’s a lot. I think basically everyone I know has owned this album, either on vinyl, cassette, CD, or all three.
