    Meteora sold 4 times as much in one week in the US than THP did in two months.

    Process that.

    An album released at the absolute peak of the career of the band that was receiving insane amounts international attention sold more copies than an album by that same band over a decade later when the popular music scene had shifted tremendously?

    That's unbelievable. I refuse to accept that. You clearly must be lying, there's no possible reality where that makes anything resembling sense.

    Not to mention during a time period where people actually still bought CDs in general.

    Coldplay is my 2nd favorite band after LP.
    How much have they sold (worldwide) in their latest album "Ghost Stories"?

    Btw, 600k+ copies sold for LP is impressive in these days! & in less then 2 months.

    Also, do Thirty Seconds To Mars.
    And if you can, do Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Korn, Limp Bizkit... I want to see how LP compares to them.

    THP sold about 6,225 copies in the States and the total is 197,982. Also, their new album now cost six bucks on iTunes for just a while and this should bounce back the sales a bit.
