The song, which appeared on “Night Visions” and played an instrumental role in the band’s ascent to superstardom, received its 10x platinum certification on July 6, 2015.

Under the terms of the RIAA’s digital singles program, a 10x platinum certification confirms a US digital unit total in excess of 10 million. A unit is equal to one paid download or 100 streams.

Only four other songs–Justin Bieber’s “Baby” (12x), Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” (11x) and Eminem’s “Not Afraid” (10x)–possess a digital single certification of 10x platinum or greater.

Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind 1997/Something in the Way You Look Tonight” is certified 11x platinum under the RIAA’s standard singles program.
