Default Def Leppard now claiming 100 million albums sold

Quite a jump from the 65 million reported in recent years:

Oh dear. When is the last time Def Leppard had a hit album?

The 90's was the last time they were even close to being relevant.

I love the Lep, but you're right - I don't think any of their studio albums have gone platinum since Retroactive. It's just funny now, that after Motley came up with the bullshit 80 million albums sold, Leppard's claim from 65 million to 100 million happened overnight. Unless they sold 35 million albums over the past year, they're full of shit.

Everything since Adrenalize has tanked, relatively, sales wise. They're full of it.

I suppose there's no law against it, but it's pretty desperate.

The must be counting single sales from the good old days.... and even that would be pushing it to get them to 100 million.

That's quite a jump! But either way, I think all these bands are full of shit anyways, Bon Jovi seems to have sold 20 million more albums every time a new press release about an album and tour comes out....

That's not true. They hit 100m with Bounce. Then the box set came out to celebrate that. They didn't start talking 120m until after HAND and Lost Highway. After The Circle and GH, they went to 130m. I think Bon Jovi are spot on, and I don't think they count singles sales. If they did, they'd probably be around 250m.

That sounds about right. The box set might not have sold all that well, but wasn't it counted as 4 separate entries? Do I have that right?
