The Gorillaz kind of missed the best years of the downloads era with both Gorillaz and Demon Days releasing before the explosion of this market. Due to this they haven’t got a proper hit after the downloads explosion occurred. This being said, Clint Eastwood and Feel Good Inc. are tremendous catalog sellers, shifting past 3 and 5 million units respectively in this format.

DARE is a solid seller as well, now on 2 million. In total, the band sold 19 million download singles.
