The group has now accumulated 13 gold and 10 platinum records with record sales in excess of 25 million copies sold worldwide. The most recent gold CD award was presented to the band for their greatest hits package Grand Funk Railroad the Collectors Series.

The huge hit was featured in a General Motors national television advertisement campaign and in Disney’s animated feature film The Country Bears.
