The Eagles’ album Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) has retaken the spot of best-selling album of all time in the United States, passing Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America, the 1976 compilation has been certified 38x platinum. Thriller has been bumped to second at 33x platinum, while another Eagles album—1977’s Hotel California—is the third-best-selling album at 29x platinum.
Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) was the best-selling album in the U.S. in the 20th century. Upon Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, sales of Thriller overtook Eagles’ record and placed it in the number one spot.
