Disturbed’s cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound Of Silence” recently received a new multi-platinum certification in the United States.
According to the RIAA, “The Sound Of Silence” reached triple platinum on November 29, 2017.
The award confirms 3 million units, with each unit equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.
In addition to spending multiple weeks atop the Mediabase active rock airplay chart, “The Sound Of Silence” peaked at #42 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.
Mainstream/active rock singles rarely even chart on the Hot 100 in today’s music climate, let alone crack the Top 50.
