Red Bull Records stalwarts AWOLNATION are in a celebratory mood after their unstoppable single 'Sail' -- taken from their debut album 'Megalithic Symphony' -- has officially gone triple platinum after selling more than 3,000,000 digital downloads.

To say the track is popular is something of an understatement, with 'Sail' also hitting quadruple platinum status in Canada and sticking around on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for more than 40 weeks. According to Nielsen Soundscan, these stats make the song one of the 20 best-selling alternative-rock singles of the digital era.
