The Eagles Overtake Michael Jackson for Top Selling Album Ever

The Eagles’ Greatest Hits 1971-1975 has surpassed Michael Jackson’s Thriller to become the No. 1-selling album of all time. The Eagles album, which was released in 1976, is now 38x platinum — that’s five times more than Thriller. Why such a wide gap? The last time RIAA tallied sales for Greatest Hits 1971-1975 was in 2006, when it came up with 29x platinum. Sales and streams for Thriller were last updated last year. “We are grateful for our families, our management, our crew, the people at radio and, most of all, the loyal fans who have stuck with us through the ups and downs of 46 years. It’s been quite a ride,” Don Henley said in a statement. The Eagles’ Hotel California is now the third top-selling album ever at 26x platinum. These days, 1,500 streams of an album are equivalent to one album sale.
