Another act saw over a 200-percent increase.

Following the Sunday's award show, Young the Giant's "My Body" went up by to 223-percent, putting them in the second slot on the alternative singles charts.

"Playing the VMAs was a surreal experience. We were proud to be the only rock band there. We really just wanted people to enjoy our performance and remember what it's like to be at a rock show,” the band told MTV. "We are truly humbled by the amazing reaction we've been getting and still reeling from having had the chance to play on such a huge stage. Thanks to everyone who helped us get to this point."

Beyonce, Adele, Pit Bull and Foo Fighters are among others who saw a huge sale bump thanks to the VMAs. Good job, MTV!
