Canadians just can’t get enough of The Hip, and that has sent the band’s album sales through the roof.
Ranging from The Hip’s first EP, to Man Machine Poem, all 17 albums are on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, thanks in part to the national broadcast of their final tour stop in Kingston.
Four of the band’s albums are in the Top 10, including 2005’s Yer Favourites in the Number One spot. Their latest album, Man Machine Poem, sits at No. 6, 1992’s Fully Completely jumped to No. 8 from No. 39 last week, and 1989’s Up To Here, climbed 19 spots from last week to hit No. 9.
Billboard Canadian Albums chart is compiled by Nielsen Music and based on album sales, digital song sales and audio on-demand streams.
Neilsen Music reported The Tragically Hip’s total album sales have jumped 157 percent from last week, with digital song sales skyrocketing to 342 percent and online streams up 185 percent.
