Both Green Day and No Doubt will release their anticipated albums and are expected to sell 125-150k in the first week. Each band has sold millions of records through out their career, but they are facing new challenges with an aging fan base, music piracy, and of course changing trends. Although, Green Day and No Doubt updated their sound, still the first singles are sluggish sales wise receiving mixed results from long time fans. It wouldn’t surprise me if each band struggles to sell 500,000 units. One Direction is the only artist this year to surpass one million in sales.
