DUTG sold more than four million copies worldwide (three million copies in the US) according to a WBR press release in 2001.
According to the RIAA's site, it hasn't reached quadruple platinum yet.  
 
According to a Billboard article in 2006, Gutterflower had sold over 680,000 copies in the US for Gold status.

Let Love In is certified GOLD for SHIPPED copies, which is all Billboard counts. They don't go by sales.
 
So as in sales, it has sold around 400,000 in the US with the re-release DVD package.

I just find it weird that whoeever put it on Wiki would lie, because although you can't trust everything on it, yesterday it said triple platinum for DUTG and I remember it said Gold for GF and LLI for a long time before they went up to Platinum. You would think that if someone were gonna lie they'd put them at 8x platinum or something.
 
 
That second link you posted has "Tuesday" as a track on LLI again. I hope we get to hear that song someday.
 
According to the first link it should be:
 
ABNG- 2x Platinum
DUTG- 3x Platinum
GF- Gold
LLI- n/a
 
That's depressing.
 
Thanks for the links Mike!

 
Yeah it is kinda depressing, but then again, those stats are about a year out of date.  So they could've broken platinum for Gutterflower and quadruple platinum for DUTG in theory.  I'll do some more Google searching when I have more time and see if I can dig up any more info.

The last day Goo Goo Dolls were on the Billboard 200 list was for the March 17th chart of this year. Their total for the Let Love In CD was 400,649.
 
Over twelve weeks later, the most they could've sold since then would be around 60,000 copies...(which of course didn't happen, but if it did, it would give them 461,000 sold in the US.)
 
I would say a more likely number is around 420,000 in the US and it is for sure over 500,000 world wide.

Wikipedia is full of crap!! If you can update it and add things yourself, there can be a whole lot of bull on there.
 
It's funny, I just had this discussion with my mom this morning lol.

If you go on the RIAA website and click on Gold and Platinum and then 'search database' and do a search for them........I swear some of that stuff isn't right....

Let Love In is not GOLD in sales. Only in shipments.
