Eagles surpass Michael Jackson for best-selling album

A record held by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” for more than 30 years is no more. The Eagles’ "Greatest Hits 1971-1975", a massive seller since its initial release back in February 1976, has surpassed 38 million copies sold and knocked MJ’s 1982 smash to No. 2, according to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America.)

The Eagles also hold the #3 spot with the album “Hotel California,” released in December of 1976. That album has been certified 26-times platinum, for sales and streams of more than 26 million copies.

They'll be in Milwaukee at the new Fiserv Forum on October 18th - maybe it'll come up in conversation!
