    the fastest selling album/soundtrack ??

    so what... Howard should shut the fuck up ...

    Best selling soundtracks are measured in millions

    PP is barley in the 100,000s

    PP spent a whole 9 weeks on the charts

    PP had one week at number one back in March, 1997 , it wasn't even in the top 10 the next week


    List of all time best selling soundtracks in the millions

    yea, but why list the "best" selling stats, what he stated "fastest" selling.

    i think that means more were bought in the first hour or day of release

    My high school friend Keith was such a Stern fan/nut that he bought all four versions of the soundtrack. All four covers.

    I can only imagine how much lower the sales would be if it wasn't for the multiple cover gimmick.

    Howard probably meant to say lowest selling album and just got confused.

    60% - 70% of all Sirius/XM radios are tuned to H100 or H101.

    60% of the 1% of the who's car came with free Sirius


    so by Howards logic no one listens to Sirius Thur-Sun?

    Howard does know that most ppl listen to the NFL on sunday?
