CDs are dead.
Another apparently obligatory Maiden thread...
Anyway I'm glad it's not gonna be #1, just cause it will piss off Bruce.

Now this is ironic. When Maiden tours the USA, they play arenas. On Arcade Fire's upcoming tour, they're playing theaters and auditoriums, yet they're above Maiden here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers...f=pd_dp_ts_m_1

Last time I checked, Arcade Fire were playing/played at Madison Square Garden.

Yep. And the big Seattle arena, at least. Probably others.

Fonzy, just let it fucking go. Lots of metal bands can't sell records. Record sales isn't sports. Who cares if anyone sells more than anyone. Arcade Fire are also good, too, sooooo.

Ya, you're right. I should just be glad that Maiden is doing as well as they are. And to make things even better, Ozzy's Scream sold half as many albums as 2007's Black Rain while Maiden's sales have gone up every album since BNW.

Also, Arcade Fire are doing well right now because, well, they just appeal to more people. It doesn't mean that they are better than Maiden in any way, shape, or form (in our general opinions, at least).

I think it's a victory that a concept album by a dark indie rock band can debut at #1 over pop and rap and country records, too. Perhaps a bigger victory than Maiden's high chart position, even.

Of course it doesn't mean that.

But they are.
