    Congrats to Linkin Park on having the first three singles from 'Minutes To Midnight' certified gold in the U.S. by the RIAA! "What I've Done", "Bleed It Out", and "Shadow of the Day" were certified gold in a February 22nd posting.

    The RIAA has this to say about gold certifications for singles:

    "NOTE: Due to a significant slowdown in singles sales activity, Gold certifications for singles in the U.S. have become a rarity."

    Here are the Billboard charts for last week:

    Billboard Top 200 Albums

    Minutes To Midnight - #44 (Last week - #41)
    Billboard Modern Rock Tracks
    Shadow of the Day - #2 (Last week - #3)
    Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks
    Shadow of the Day - #19 (Last week - #10)
    Billboard Hot 100
    Shadow of the Day - #17 (Last week - #15) ​

    Great job LP, I never thought that bleed it out and shadow of the day would reach gold sales....that's a real massive achievement.

    Rock On LP!

    Is this refering to physical single sales? I'm guessing it is, since digital singles frequently sell over 500k. I know that "What I've Done" has sold over a million digital downloads and that "Shadow Of The Day" should cross the 1 million mark in about a month or so. If, on top of all that, all 3 of their singles managed to sell enough physical copies to go gold, that's pretty impressive.
