All your friends may be heathens, but they have at least bought the official Suicide Squad album. The wildly popular soundtrack just received a Gold Certification from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), and it looks like the squad is celebrating.
Kev Weaver, the executive vice president at Atlantic Records, posted a photo to Instagram to commemorate the milestone. He took a screenshot of an email announcing the golden accomplishment that reads, “Congratulations, guys!! Suicide Squad: The Album is officially RIAA Gold!”
The soundtrack also stands as the first to go Gold after being released this year. It took only six weeks to reach the award which indicates the album sold at least 500,000 units so far. Kev celebrated the accomplishment and wrote, “Yeah you read that right #boom.”
Of course, many fans are not surprised by the award. After all, Suicide Squad: The Album did debut at the top of the Billboard 200 Chart. It sold over 182,000 album units either physically or digitally to reach the No. 1 spot. Suicide Squad: The Album was the first soundtrack to top the chart since Disney’s Descendants debuted last year at the top spot.

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, Suicide Squad stars Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach (“Cowboys & Aliens”), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
