Hoping to see an update of what Revolution Radio ended up at and how Father Of All has performed with it being out for 6 months now. Great article!


Japan – 725,000

Seems odd considering the album is only certified Platinum* (200,000).



Thanks for the answer. Keep up the good work!

So any update as of December 2018?

I’d like an update to see how Revolution Radio is doing. The spotify streams for those songs seem to be quite a bit higher now than they were on Page 26.

The album has also been certified Gold in the UK indicating 100k+ so I’d assume it sold a good bit more worldwide. It’s probably reached the 1 million milestone by now. I hope in the future it surpasses Uno! at least.

Hello it’s now November 20, 2017.

Any chance of an update on Revolution Radio ?

It could be a “I Know What You Want” reference as well haha

You know I think ‘American Idiot’ is a masterpiece and it was also the last REAL hit rock album ever. How many other rock albums have surpassed 10 million copies since then?

Its also a massive hit with the streaming, more so than ‘Dookie’. American Idiot has 593,769,585 streams as of today, where as Dookie has 447,417,471. Also if you look at Green day’s top 10 songs on Youtube, you’ll… Read more »
