    Default 6 Manson LPs and "Tainted Love" certified for first time by BPI last July

    The British Phonographic Industry recently changed their rules on certifications in the UK. The BPI used to rely on record labels sending proof of how many copies a record shipped, then they would certify accordingly. But now, the BPI accesses sales information directly from Nielsen SoundScan and certifies albums based on copies sold. And if we needed more proof that Interscope seriously stopped giving a shit, look at all the stuff that's been given a certification under the new criteria, that Interscope never bothered their arses with:

    Portrait of an American Family - Silver (60,000+)
    Smells Like Children - Gold (100,000+)
    Antichrist Superstar - Gold
    Mechanical Animals - Gold
    The Last Tour on Earth - Silver
    Holy Wood - Gold
    Tainted Love (single) - Silver (200,000+)

    BPI: type Manson's name and click search using your mouse (don't just click the enter key on your keyboard - for some reason, that only initiates a site search)

    I'm surprised Tainted Love did so well, particularly as it was made for a terrible film.

    Music Week never give full run downs of what every album by an artist sold in the UK. The only thing we can say is that EMDM, THEOL and BV each sold less than 60,000. Probably anywhere from 20,000 to 45,000 each. The cool thing is though, we practically know now that Manson has sold over a million records in the UK alone. All his certifications add up to 945,000, and between the last three albums and all his other singles, he's easily passed the million mark.

    So it's safe to say Marilyn Motherfuckin Manson has read my shit. Where else would he have gotten that thing about the one million UK fans? Warranted or not, I feel pretty smug right now. =)

    BTW, his version of "Tainted Love" has sold over 245,000 copies in the UK, according to that "Biggest Selling Rock Singles of the 00's" chart on Kerrang! TV.

    Tainted Love was very popular. It became a "rock club" mainstay in a way that nothing else before or since* The Beautiful People had managed

    *I assume. Haven't been to such a place for a few years!

    ^ It sold nearly 1.5m in the US alone. Way more than that worldwide.
