Name the artists with the most total RIAA album (no singles) certifications by letter. Artists are sorted by FIRST NAME and leading ‘the’ or ‘a’ has been removed. You need to type in the full artist, last names will not suffice on this quiz. Obviously some artists can be named different, i.e. those starting with numbers, but I tried to use the most common. SEE NOTES.
Favorite this Quiz!
NOTES: RIAA certifications basically count Gold or Platinum albums…a Gold counts as 0.5, Platinum as 1.0, and multiplatinum as anything from 2.0 up (whole numbers only). This tracks US record sales only – not international. Last names are generally required. Entering an artist will occasionally fill in another answer if they collaborated with another artist (although they typically weren’t a duo) on another certified Gold or Platinum album. I also allow some abbreviations.
