Breaking Benjamin's 'The Diary Of Jane' Certified Triple Platinum
Breaking Benjamin’s hit single “The Diary Of Jane," from 2006’s Phobia album, was officially certified triple platinum for sales of three million copies in the U.S. on September 5th by the Recording Industry Association of America. It was previously certified double platinum in November of 2015.
"The Diary Of Jane" remains one of Breaking Benjamin's biggest hits and the band's most successful single in terms of sales. It reached Number One on three separate rock charts, while the video has been viewed more than 148 million times on YouTube as of this year.
Although the "Jane" in the video is named Jane Bryan after an actress who was active in the 1930s, Breaking Benjamin frontman Ben Burnley told us a while back that "Jane" could be just about anyone: ["Basically, 'Jane' to me is a Jane Doe, John Doe kind of thing, where it's...basically everybody has a Jane Doe or a John Doe, you know what I mean, that they don't know yet, or they did know, and they're dead to them now. But it's just basically a vague perception of relationships."] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . perception of relationships.)
Breaking Benjamin has been out on the road across North America most of the summer, touring with Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Dorothy and Diamante. The band stops in Rogers, Arkansas on Friday night (September 6th).
