SLIPKNOT's "Duality" has been certified gold in the United Kingdom. To earn a gold certification for a single in the U.K., SLIPKNOT had to sell 400,000 units of the song.

"Duality" marks the only SLIPKNOT single to have ever achieved gold certification in the U.K. "Psychosocial", "Wait And Bleed" and "Before I Forget" have all been certified silver, representing 200,000 sales. "Duality" is featured on SLIPKNOT's 2004 album "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)". The single peaked at No. 15 on the U.K. Top 40 and at No. 1 on the Rock chart. SLIPKNOT's latest album, "We Are Not Your Kind", was certified silver in the U.K. last year for sales in excess of 60,000 copies. In the U.S., "We Are Not Your Kind" sold 118,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
