Slaughter sold 3,367 albums it’s first week, which is more records than Sebastian Bach has sold in 5 weeks.  Maybe he should tour with Slaughter & Poison, he’d sell more records.

Sebastian’s numbers are

1st Week:  789

2nd Week: 558

3rd Week: 568

4th Week: 417

5th Week: 430

Slaughter sold 150 albums last week.  Who are these people??

Motley’s first week total was 17,217 which put them at #133 on the Billboard Charts.  Last week they sold 11,133 and dropped down to #181.

Guns N’ Roses sold 60,814 it’s first week and debuted on the charts at #45.

Metallica’s first week sales were 300,906 and had them debut at #2 on the Billboard Charts.  588 copies of the album were sold before the street date.  Last week they sold 170,260 and dropped down to #11.

Numbers for Tommy Lee’s Methods Of Mayhem will be in Wednesday morning.  600,000 copies of the album were ordered by music chains so thus he shipped Gold.  But that doesn’t mean anybody will buy them. 

As Of December 15, 1999

Sebitchian Bach "Bring ‘Em Bach Alive!"   3,472
Guns N’ Roses "Live Era 1987-93" 109,970

Notes:

Methods Of Mayhem debuted on the Billboard Charts at number 71 and sold 44,520.

Guns N’ Roses sold 49,172 last week, which is 4,652 more than Tommy Lee did.

Metallica sold another 202,345 copies last week and are at #13 on the Billboard charts.

Motley Crue moved 9,533 units last week.

Sebastian Bach had a huge week selling 688 CDs, which is up from 434 last week.  See, Metal Sludge sells albums!  We put up the FU Award that week and he sold more albums.  Either that or he must have seen the last set of Sludge Scans and went out and bought a few hundred copies (with all that $$$$ he has from selling 22 MILLION ALBUMS!!!!!).

Warrant sold 227 CDs, which is down a bit from their previous week of 229.

L.A. Guns "Black Beauties" sold 150 CDs, while Shrinking Violent sold 34 CDs last week, 30 the week before.   The best seller in Perris Records history continues to blow out the doors of fine retailers everywhere!!!

Notes:

The Christmas buying season means most everybody has experiencing increased sales.

Methods Of Mayhem sold 38,706 copies last week, which is down from their first week total of 44,524.  MOM went from #71 to #103 on the Billboard Charts.

Here’s a interesting note.  When Vince Neil’s first solo album came out, Exposed, he debuted at number #13 and fell to #22 his second week. 

Motley Crue sold 10,487 last week.

Metallica went up in sales as "S&M" sold 252,757 this week, up from 202,345 last week.  They are still at #13 on the charts and has almost sold Platinum within a month.

Marilyn Manson’s "Last Tour On Earth" sold 9,743 copies last week, up from 9,252 the week before. 

Guns N’  Roses scans up from 49,172 last week to 58,502 this week (totals scans of 168,472).  However, despite almost selling another 10,000 more records, it drops on the charts from  #66 to #70.

For some reason I couldn’t find WWF Volume 2 & 4.  I’ll keep trying.

Happy Holidays!
