It’s been over ten years since The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack was released, but Marilyn Manson‘s cover was just certified Gold in the U.S.

Back in 2008, a number of bands including Manson, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy and more recorded covers for the movie.

For the soundtrack, Manson gave his haunting take on the classic track “This Is Halloween.”

Gold certifications are offered to artists who manage to sell over 500,000 units which is quite a monumental achievement. The next stop for the song is Platinum certification which requires moving over 1 million units in total.

While it’s strange the spooky Halloween track went gold in the middle of the year, we’re more than happy to see Manson get another award!

In case you haven’t heard the cover yet, check it out in the player below.
