We all know the Foo Fighters are some of the best rockers out there, but now their awesomeness has been verified by the RIAA. The band has achieved 6 new platinum certifications!
The Foo’s 2011 album Wasting Light has gone platinum. It received gold status on May 18, 2011. “Learn to Fly,” a hit single that is impossible to get out of one’s head, has also achieved platinum status.
The 2007 Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace earned its platinum certification, and its popular single “The Pretender” has achieved double platinum status. Pretty impressive, right? But the band’s music recognition doesn’t stop there. Singles “Everlong” from The Colour And The Shape and “Best Of You” from In Your Honor have hit double platinum as well.
Congrats to the Foo Fighters on their major platinum achievements! If the past has anything to do with the future, Concrete and Gold is sure to be worth the wait. The band’s ninth studio album is due out September 15. With features from guest artists like Paul McCartney, and singles that are already rocking our world, we don’t doubt that more platinum certifications are just around the corner.
