In the U.S. a gold record means it sold 500,000 copies and a platinum record means a million. Right around the time Green Day hit 10,000,000 sales, the RIAA invented a new award-- diamond. Appropriately enough Dookie was one of the first albums to get one. And "Longview" was one of the amazing singles that propelled those sales, not just in America but all around the world. I was in Myanmar in December and I found a CD by a local band called Big Bag and they cover "Longview" and I'm still trying to figure out how to play it on American equipment! Meanwhile, how about a jazz version by Lea Delaria?
