"Hey, don't write yourself off yet."

Jimmy Eat World's 2001 single 'The Middle' has been certified Platinum in the UK. 

To put that into some sort of context, a platinum certification is the equivalent of 600,000 sales, which is a pretty big deal really. Receiving such an accolade now only goes to demonstrate that the importance and relevance of the track hasn't wained after all these years, and that is something to be celebrated. 

In terms of actual chart positions in the UK, the song reached a high of number twenty three in the Top 40 and number two in the Rock and Metal chart. 

The track appears on the album 'Bleed American', which was certified Gold back in 2013.

As good a time as any to revisit the iconic video as well then. Have a watch below:
