Metallica Hit Major Milestone

Metallica's 1991 self-titled album, a.k.a. The Black Album, has hit another milestone in sales. Not only is it the biggest album of the SoundScan era (which began in 1991), but it just passed 16 million in sales in the U.S.

The album continues to sell to this day and when the numbers were tallied for the week ending May 25th, additional sales of 3,000 copies pushed the album past the 16 million mark.

Metallica's album claimed the honor as the best selling album of the SoundScan era back on December 20th, 2009 when its sales surpassed Shania Twain's "Come On Over."
