"Black Ice" 3rd biggest selling album in Australia last week

October 20, 2008

"Black Ice" was the third best selling album in Australian last week, but does not appear on the Album Charts today. Australian charts are based on sales calculated from Saturday to Friday each week, but the AC/DC ranking this week represents sales from only last Friday, since several stores started selling the album a day ahead of the official release which was scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 18th.

Apparently ARIA (the Australian Record Industry Association, who run the Chart) wisely decided not to apply these sales towards the Album Charts this week, which would have effectively robbed the band of a #1 debut. 7,265 units of "Black Ice" were sold on Friday, and it is certain to debut at #1 next week.
