Several albums have sold more than 15 million copies in the United States. Some of these albums have sold millions of copies in other countries as well. These albums are expected to continue to sell well for decades to come.
Many of the albums on the list have been re-released. They have sold millions of copies and have continued to be popular decades after their release. They have also been in the top ten on the Billboard charts for hundreds of weeks.
Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is the best selling album of all time. It was the band’s breakthrough album and has sold millions of copies worldwide. It reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200 and has been inducted into the National Recording Registry. It also has been a big hit in the UK, where it reached the top ten.
There are also several albums that have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. These albums can be singles or studio albums. The list is compiled by a music news service called RockNews.
Many of the albums on the list are certified as diamond albums, meaning they have sold more than 10 million copies. This is a much higher threshold than the 20 million units benchmark. The list also includes double albums that are certified with more than two copies. It also counts albums that are re-released as two sales.
Several of the albums on the list were originally released in the 1950s or 1960s. However, these are not analyzed because of the lack of reliable sales numbers.
