Alice In Chains' 1992 album Dirt is still going strong 30 years after its release. As Consequence of Sound points out, the album was recently certified 5x Platinum by the RIAA, which is the equivalent of 5 million units sold.

Each of the album’s singles all received new certifications too: “Would?” (2x Platinum); “Them Bones” (Platinum); “Rooster” (2x Platinum); and “Down in a Hole” (Platinum).

That album isn't the only piece of Alice In Chains music to get updated certification. Their 1990 debut album Facelift, as well as their hit single “Man in the Box,” went 3x Platinum, and the 1994 Jar of Flies EP hit 4x Platinum. Singles “No Excuses” and “I Stay Away” each went gold, and non-single “Nutshell” went Platinum.

The certifications come just days before Alice In Chains hit the road with Breaking Benjamin and Bush. Check out a full list of tour dates below.
