Metallica Receive Platinum Award, Share Now That We're Dead Video

June 1, 2017

In April, Metallica’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct was officially certified Platinum (meaning it sold at least one million “units” AKA a specific number of combined physical sales, streams, and digital sales) by the RIAA.

It’s about time the guys received their awards, right? Execs from their label, Blackened Recordings, agreed, so they showed up to hand over the awards.

And by “execs,” we mean Metallica—they own their own label. Well played, guys. Well played.

Another exciting Metallica moment? They just shared an official music video for their Hardwired song “Now That We’re Dead.” Filmed during the WorldWired tour, the video can be seen below.
