[05.29.03] Meteora Has Officially Become Platinum:
The Recording Industry Academy of America, also known as the RIAA, has now officially designated Linkin Park's sophmore album, "Meteora", double-platinum. This news comes just 2 months after the release of "Meteora" to the US on March 25th, 2003. The platinum certifications show that over 2,000,000 copies of "Meteora" have been sold in the past 2 months, although album sales are dipping after "Somewhere I Belong", the first single, has started to cool off rotation-wise on music stations.
"Meteora" dropped 2 spots this week to spot #13 on the Billboard 200 Charts for the week of May 21st -27th. Sales should pick up with the help of the band's newly released single for "Faint". "Faint" is now at spot #28 on the Billboard Modern Rock Charts, while "Somewhere I Belong" sticks at #3 for another week after 13 weeks on the charts. "Somewhere I Belong" is also at position #4 on the Mainstream Rock Charts after slipping two spots from last week.
[05.23.03] Mike Shinoda descibed the concept behind the faint video saying, "the song is about feeling ignored...we decided on mark's idea because of how it visually interprets this theme. for most of the song, the band is ignored by an unusual antagonist--the camera. it shoots our backs and never focuses in on our faces until chester snaps in the bridge. we thought the concept was very strong because of the unconventional way in which mark attacked the subject. and he really came through with creating an energetic, dark atmosphere--without making a dark video that doesn't look like every other dark video."
