Back in Black has 4 digital million sellers, confirming its everlasting appeal. And while Back in Black trailed Hells Bells and You Shook Me All Night long in original singles sales, it is well ahead here at a massive 5,920,000. For Those About to Rock adds another million-seller to the catalog, but once again we see poor interest in the mid-late 80s period.
