The new auction, starting at $37,600 and slated to end on May 1st, 2014, contains the certified platinum song “Replay” by Zendaya. With a current Billboard Hot 100 chart of #40, the video for the song has also reach almost 50 million views on Vevo.

Between 1994-96, Hootie & The Blowfish’s album racked up a total of 12 million copies sold and the band would go on to sell 25 million records worldwide.
