Rush Moving PicturesEarlier this week on Monday, April 19th, the RIAA awarded Rush's Moving Pictures album 5X Multi-Platinum status, meaning 5 million units have been sold to date. The album was last certified 4X Multi-Platinum back in 1995. It was originally given Gold and Platinum certification shortly after its release in 1981, then 2X Multi-Platinum status on October 12, 1984. It's been a long time since any Rush studio album was given a Gold or Platinum certification by the RIAA, with the last one being Roll the Bones' Platinum certification 20 years ago back in 2001. Thanks to Charlie W for the heads up.
