"40 million records and going strong. Never won a Grammy
Still won't play along in Hollywood, like we should"

Mötley Crüe - Fake - 2000

Ever wondered which Mötley Crüe album spent the most time in the charts? Or perhaps you’ve had a bet with someone and are looking for the facts. Search no more!

Here’s the official Billboard® chart history for all Mötley Crüe albums, in chronological order. The official RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) album certification dates and levels have also been included. The gold record award was first introduced in 1958. Currently, gold is awarded for 500,000 units sold, platinum for 1,000,000, and multi-platinum for 2,000,000+. These units are based on shipments to retail accounts from the record label, not actual over the counter sales

The Soundscan column shows actual over the counter sales purchased by consumers in the United States (only!), and it's the industry standard on which the Billboard charts are based. This system came into effect towards the end of 1991, so items in this column are units sold since then. Ten units for each album have also been added to allow for the small stores that don't report to Soundscan yet.
