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.
If you think so, I still say they're full of shit, but that's the norm within the industry it seems. From Motley, to Lepp, to even heavyweights like Metallica and Bon Jovi. Even the numbers from the rolling Stones don't even sound right to me, but that's just me you don't have to agree....

Bon Jovi had some monster selling albums. From Slippery to These Days they were selling huge amounts and then even the 00's albums sold a decent amount.

They waited until they sold 100 million and then celebrated it. These has been bands are just taking the piss now in a desperate attempt to sell tickets / albums.

I don't even think poison has sold 25 million, let alone 100m. They're probably my least favorite 80s bands. And that goes far considering I hate 80s cheese rock.

Exactly.

Slippery - 28m
New Jersey - 18m
Keep The Faith - 12m
Cross Road - 20m
These Days - 11m
Crush -11m

Those 6 alone have sold 100m to date.

Leppard on the other hand, had 2 massive albums and the rest just don't add up:

On Through The Night - 1m
High n' Dry - No certification in any country.
Pyromania - 15m
Hysteria - 20m
Adrenalize - 6m (being generous)
Retro Active - 2m (being generous)
Vault - 6m
Slang - 2m (being EXTREMELY generous)
Euphoria - 1m
X - No certification in any country.
Yeah - See above.
Rock of Ages - 2m
Songs from the Sparkle Lounge - No certification in any country.

So, from what we know for sure, they have sold 55m. Between the rest without certification, I can buy another 10m. But 45m?

Found this on a fan made FAQ in 2000. How correct it is, I don't know, the numbers could be WAY off but this is what they had, for the sake of perspective:

On Through The Night: 1 million
High 'N' Dry: 1 million
Pyromania: 10 million
Hysteria: 16 million
Adrenalize: 7 million
Retro Active: 1.7 million
Vault - Greatest Hits: 6 million
Slang: 3 million
Euphoria: 0.5 million in the USA (and counting)

Really? I can't tell you how sick I am of hearing '120 million albums sold'. It seems like that has been the amount forever.

Those numbers sound about right for the time, with the exception of Slang. I can't find anywhere that says it went platinum in any country.

def leppard have no way sold near 100m albums. maybe 55m at a push

They havent had a hit album since 80s.

Re Jovi - they do include solo albums in their 130m albums not sure re singles though
