wow, what a depressing list. guess I'm one of the few who still buy rock music lol. even accounting for lower album sales, looks like Linkin Park officially bombed. I mean back in the day, Senses Fail's EP sold more than that. staggering really, the drop-off in sales, rock really has gotten nailed, pop and rap less so.

That record was released in September 2010. I don't see many other records that were released in 2010 on there (apart from Mumford & Sons, of course).

Nickelback just put out their album in what...November? Give them time to break it out.
Exactly what I was about to say. That record's been out for less than two months. 550k already is nuts. Foo Fighters only beat them by 100k with their album being on store shelves seven months longer.

I don't know what everyone's complaining about, really. This is a pretty good sampling of modern rock in all its various flavors. Yeah, some of it is mainstream tripe, but a significant amount of it isn't. As for the overall numbers, keep in mind that at retail prices, even the lowest album on that chart easily clears a million bucks in gross. The heyday of physical media may be gone, but album sales are still nothing to sniff at.

Indeed surprising and, for some of these bands, slightly depressing numbers.

There's a lot of distressing stuff on this list. Like how much lingering sales power there is for cock rock and how well Five Finger Death Punch and Hollywood Undead did.

Rock is such a vague term these days, the fact that Avenged Sevenfold, Bob Seger and Florence + the Machine can be catagorized into the same group baffles my mind. Who gets to classify these things?

Hah, Nicklecrack at #5. Who buys this nonsense?

Isn't that a massive setback for Blink? Surprised no one is bringing it up. Can't believe they barely sold more than Hollywood Undead...
