It was also certified multi-platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. To date, the album has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
Matchbox Twenty - Mad Season(2000)
Mad Season, also known as Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty, is the second studio album from American rock band Matchbox Twenty, released in May 2000. The album was a significant departure from the bands's debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, as it moved from a straight rock sound to pop and experimental rock. While not as successful as its predecessor, the album entered and peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 365,000 and was certified 4× Platinum in the United States in October 2001.
Matchbox Twenty - More Than Think You Are (2002)
More Than You Think You Are, released on November 19, 2002, is the third album from the American rock band Matchbox Twenty.

Matchbox Twenty - Exile on Mainstream (2007)
Exile on Mainstream is the first compilation album by American rock band Matchbox Twenty featuring seven new songs that emerged from a 12-song recording session in L.A., produced by Steve Lillywhite, and 11 greatest hits songs. The album was released on October 2, 2007, exactly 11 years and one day since the release of the band's debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You. Paul Doucette, originally the band's drummer, played rhythm guitar due to Adam Gaynor's departure. The album's title is a reference to the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St. (the track "Disease" was co-written with Mick Jagger).
All seven of the new songs on the album were credited to the members of Matchbox Twenty, a first for the group. Prior to this, the songs either were credited to Rob Thomas himself or co-written with various members of the band.
The album was available for pre-order on September 4, 2007 from iTunes. The full album was released on VH1's "The Leak" one week prior to release. It leaked onto the Internet on September 28, 2007, four days ahead of the official release date. The album debuted on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart on October 8, 2007 at number-one with sales of 18,199 units. In the U.S., the album debuted at number-three on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 131,000 copies in its first week. The album was released in a USB wristband format as well as the 2-CD edition making Matchbox Twenty the first band to do so.
The first single, "How Far We've Come", was released on July 16, 2007, and charted in the top 10 in Australia and in the top 20 in the United States. Paul Doucette announced in mid-October that "These Hard Times" would be released as the album's second single in early 2008. In Australia, "All Your Reasons" was released as the second single instead of "These Hard Times", and the single is available on the Australian iTunes Store.
