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


Asia – 9,780,000
Japan – 7,065,000

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.

I guess that’s the way it works for all artists. Record sales are way less these days because everything is digital streaming what you have to have 1500 streams gisty just the equal one album sale.
