Charts[change | change source]

Even though it was not well-liked by critics, Super Collider debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. It sold 29,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week. Even though it sold fewer copies than the album before, Thirteen (42,000), it charted higher after the first week, because Thirteen debuted at number eleven. This makes the album Megadeth's highest-charting album in the U.S. since Youthanasia, which peaked at number four in 1994.[1]

The album dropped to number 39 on the Billboard 200 in its second week.[2] Eight months after its release, U.S. sales for Super Collider were about 80,000 copies.[3]

The album also had top ten success in Canada and Finland, at number four, and Norway, at number seven.[4][5] Also, the album charted at number fifteen in Sweden.[5] In other countries, the album did not manage to break into the top twenty.[5]
