Whether you enjoy them or not, you really have to be impressed by what Godsmack have done in their careers to date. Debuting in 1998 with their self-titled full-length, the band gained a fanbase over time that eventually helped subsequent albums become some of hard rock’s best-selling albums – even as some of their peers started finding success harder to come by. In fact, the band had three consecutive full-length albums debut at #1, Faceless // IV // The Oracle, which is something only a handful of rock and metal bands have ever done.
Now the band has three more RIAA certifications to add to their list – When Legends Rise, the title track to that album, and “Under Your Scars” have all been certified Gold by the RIAA for sales of 500,000 each. Impressive stuff!
