Earlier this afternoon, the Roadrunner UK office took a few moments to stop and smell the roses...actually, to sip on some champagne in celebration. Celebration? Yes, Nickelback's Silver Side Up has officially gone GOLD in the UK (100,000 units). This marks the second release in Roadrunner history to achieve gold status in the UK, the first being Slipknot's IOWA. To the Roadrunner UK staff and to Nickelback, CONGRATULATIONS. reminder - TOMORROW (02/06) at 10:30pm EST, Nickelback is on MTV Diary. random fact - Gold status here in the US is 500,000 units. In the UK it is 100,000 units. US population at present time is 286 million, UK population is 60 million. That means that gold status and population of the UK is 1/5 of the gold status and population of the US. All about proportions, we guess...
