Gold Single Displays
Gold Single Displays - Letter D
The 'D' sub-category of certified gold records and discs (singles with worldwide sales in excess of half a million copies) is varied enough to cater for pop and rock fans alike. Each of the gold records come in a display featuring its corresponding CD single and includes the original cover / sleeve art, making for an eye-catching addition to any wall or surface.
Hard rockers Def Leppard were originally formed in Sheffield in 1977 by Rick Savage, Pete Willis and Tony Kenning. Despite numerous difficulties including several line-up changes, the death of guitarist Steve Clark and drummer Rick Allen's loss of his left arm, they became phenomenally successful. In addition to numerous platinum and gold discs, the group holds the record for being one of only five rock bands with two studio albums, to sell over ten million copies each in the US (otherwise known as of April 2010 as diamond certified records). 'Long, Long Way to Go' was released in 2002, taken from their decisive eighth album 'X'. Although it failed to replicate the level of success of previous singles in America (where it failed to chart) the song was a minor hit in Britain, where it peaked at no. 41 in the UK Singles Chart.
Rock and Heavy metal fans may also note the inclusion of American band, Disturbed. Formed in Chicago in 1996 after hiring singer David Draiman, the group has enjoyed commercial success both in their home country and worldwide - earning several platinum and gold discs as well as releasing three consecutive albums that have debuted at number one on the American Billboard 200 chart. 'Stricken', the group's ninth single and the second to be taken from their third album 'Ten Thousand Fists', was released in 2005 and fared particularly well in US Mainstream and Alternative rock charts, peaking at no. 2 and no. 13 respectively.
