OKAY TIME FOR FACTS.
Don’t read headlines do the research. Rob Zombie has sold about 6 million albums all time. This is TOTAL! You want to cite Wikipedia then do it... click on EACH album and read for yourself. Here is the break down so you can add it up yourself.
Hillbilly his best selling album ever WORLD WIDE about 3.2 million albums sold. Sinister Urge his second album about 1.8 million. Educated sold about 300,000, Hellbilly Deluxe 2 sold about 200,000, Venomouse less than 100,000 and Warlock sold about 150,000. His last album has no album sales because artists no longer sell albums... they make money from getting views on YouTube or plays on streaming. So when you ADD UP EVERYTHING you come out to about 6 million or a bit less in total album sales. This doesn’t count single sales this is just straight albums. Furthermore Rob Zombie has NO top 10 hits NO #1 hits.
Now if you want to start counting White Zombie album sales that is another story... they had one really successful album which sold about 2.6 million. White Zombie was a band, and Rob Zombie is an individual. Two different things totally. Rob Zombie as a SOLO artist has sold about 6 MILLION albums. Just so you know Guns N Roses sold about 30 MILLION albums with just their FIRST record. That is how all this started someone said Rob Zombie was better than Guns N Roses... maybe in your opinion but record sales says a whole other story. Rob Zombie is a niche artists while Guns N Roses is a MEGA band. You can’t compare the two.
Alice Cooper only has ONE album that has reached just 1 million, a few around 500,000 and most under 100,000. Alice Cooper is more about his small but loyal fan base touring constantly. He hasn’t sold many ALBUMS.
Now as for Tears for Fears... I meant that as a joke even though if a TFF album was created I’d be the first in line. But lets compare Rob Zombie and Tears for fears just for the smart people who do no research.
Tears for Fears second album sold more copies than all of Rob Zombies records combined... Songs from the Big Chair produced FOUR top 40 hits, 2 #1 records and another song that peaked at #3. Songs from the Big Chair sold over 7 million albums. Their first albums sold over 1 million and their 3rd Album sold over 2 million, Elemental about 700k, 5th 300,000 on the next one and about 250 on their last album. In total Tears for Fears have sold over 12 million Albums and over 30 million sales total when you account for singles. They’ve also had two greatest hits records selling another 2 million roughly.
Lastly Tears for Fears just RECENTLY uploaded a YouTube page September 2019 and already have 100 million MORE views than Rob Zombie who joined December of 2005, proving TFF is WAY WAY more popular than Rob Zombie. Guns N Roses just joined YouTube as well in 2018 and now have 6 billion views how in the WORLD can you compare Rob Zombie to Guns N Roses. You can’t even compare Rob Zombie to Tears for Fears. Please.
The point I was making was Rob Zombie has a niche horror rock following mostly due to directly horror movies. It’s fine but some of you said Rob Zombie was the bigger title and that is just FALSE!
Guns N Roses have sold over 50 million Albums have over 6 billion of views on their music, and their last tour generated nearly 600 million dollars.
Don’t compare Guns N Roses to Rob ZOmbie get out of here... when Rob Zombie plays concerts he plays venues as small as 2000, Tear For Fears last tour with Hall and Oats was 20k arenas. When Rob Zombie was touring with Alice Cooper they sold about 7 to 8 thousand tickets. Not even close.
