AEROSMITH: 'Greatest Hits' Reaches 11-Million Mark

December 21, 2007

AEROSMITH's "Greatest Hits" collection was certified 11-times-platinum on December 13, 2007 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of 11 million copies in the United States.

Released in 1980, "Greatest Hits" is AEROSMITH's first standard "greatest hits" compilation album. It contained some of the hits that made the band an icon of the 1970s rock era. A few remastered versions of "Greatest Hits" appeared in the 1990s and are considered partly responsible for the band's popular rejuvenation during the decade. Some of the tracks were significantly shortened from their original versions, paricularly "Same Old Song and Dance", "Sweet Emotion", and "Kings and Queens".

"Greatest Hits" has gone on to become the band's best-selling album in the United States. The band won a diamond award when the LP's sales reached the ten-million mark in 2001.
