CSPC: Aerosmith Popularity Analysis

Compilations – Career-spanning sets

O, Yeah! was the first true career spanning compilation of the band. In spite of relatively low initial sales considering how many people already owned most of its songs, it naturally became a perennial catalog seller. A few years later, Devil’s Got a New Disguise mostly replaced it, then The Essential.

All these compilations are boosted by hits from Aerosmith, Toys in the Attic, Get a Grip and then the Orphan section. Obviously, this one became way better represented since the arrival of I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.

Hi MJD, in Asia Aerosmith outside Japan sell this way less than Metallica?

Jsak

Aerosmith:
Asia – 9,780,000
Japan – 7,065,000

Metallica:
Asia – 8.380.000
Japan – 3.785.000

Aerosmith in Japan have sold far more, but there is no history outside.

Except this is inaccurate. Aerosmith has more than 150 million world wide in album sales. And if you rank them by platinum album sales Aerosmith is ranked 14th above metallica, Bon jovi, van halen, the who, Michael Jackson. And Aerosmith has still sold more units in America than bon jovi or metallica.

Join the discussion…I heard on a 60 minutes episode of Steve Tyler on an interview and they said Aerosmith had sold 160 million albums world wide back in 2013. Obviously 7 years later their even higher now.

You get about 160m if you add all album and single sales together unweighted.
