Alice in Chains earns new RIAA Platinum certifications for ‘Dirt,’ ‘Facelift’ & more


Alice in Chains‘ discography just got a whole lot shinier, thanks to new Platinum certifications from the RIAA.

The grunge titans’ 1992 sophomore effort Dirt is now five-times Platinum in recognition of 5 million units certified, while their 1990 debut Facelift has been certified triple Platinum.

For Dirt, the new certification comes a month before the album will celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Meanwhile, AiC’s 1994 EP Jar of Flies has been certified four-times Platinum, and their 1996 Unplugged release is now double Platinum.

Additionally, a number of singles have earned new certifications, including the triple-Platinum “Man in the Box,” and the double-Platinum “Would?” and “Rooster.” The songs “Them Bones,” “Down in a Hole” and “Nutshell” have also been certified Platinum for the first time.

Alice in Chains’ most recent album is 2018’s Rainier Fog. The band is set to launch a U.S. tour this Wednesday, August 10, in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, alongside Breaking Benjamin and Bush.
