Metallica - Hardwired To Self-Destruct goes platinum

Hardwired to Self-Destruct, the latest album from Metallica, has officially been certified Platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), meaning the record has moved at least 1 million copies in the United States. A portion of the tally includes downloads and streaming, though more than 900,000 of the total is composed of traditional sales.

Notably, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is the first hard rock or metal album to be awarded Platinum certification in the U.S. during the current decade.

Of course, the accolade is nothing new to Metallica; every single Metallica studio album released to date has gone Platinum in the U.S.
