AC/DC’s ’80 breakthrough album Back In Black has been certified for U.S. shipments of 26-million copies by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA). 

The band’s seventh studio effort was their first to feature Brian Johnson (pictured) following the death of Bon Scott, their previous vocalist.

“Back In Black” first went platinum in ’80 and had previously been certified 25 times platinum in ’19. At the time, the RIAA listed “Back In Black” as the fourth biggest-selling album of all time.
