    Congrats to Linkin Park on having their latest album certified two-times platinum, signifying two million copies sold in the United States!

    It took 'Minutes To Midnight' six months to accomplish the feat. Congratulations again to Linkin Park!

    I wonder how long it took the other albums to be certified double platinum.

    Either way, congratulations.

    Man the RIAA should consider on reducing the standard unit sales on gold, platinum and diamond now the market is doing much differently than the past. Hell that might make Hybrid Theory to something like 2x Diamond; Meteora 1x Diamond and Minutes To Midnight 5x Platinum. :lol:

    Well, to have a fair comparison... Kanye West's Graduation was certified 2x Platinum in a little over (meaning like, a week) a month. :lol:

    RIAA certifications are actually based on shipments -- doesn't necessarily mean 2 million sold.
