Band albums sales take off because of… a game!?!

Chicago band Fall Out Boy sold 70,000 copies of their new album in one week after the music was featured on “Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland,” a skateboarding game, music scout Tim Riley said.

“They weren’t on the radio,” he said. “The only thing you can attribute the sales to is the game.” Activision has doubled its music spending in the last five years, Riley added.
