The Eagles' Greatest Hits Dethrones Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' as Best-Selling Album

The Eagles have reclaimed the crown for the best-selling album of all time. Thriller's numbers were updated a year ago. Thriller surpassed Greatest Hits shortly after the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, but with a gap of five million copies, it seems unlikely that Thriller will regain the lead anytime soon.

Further proving the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers' enormous popularity, The Eagles' other 1976 release, Hotel California, sits at No. 3 all-time at 26x platinum.

Recording Industry Association of America confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday that the band's 1976 compilation album has been certified 38x platinum, meaning it has sold 38 million copies. Thriller stands at 33-times platinum.

The Eagles came to prominence in the 1970's in Los Angeles and released a number of huge hits that have continued to stay relevant. The greatest hits comp held the top spot for almost a decade before it was surpassed by Jackson following his death in 2009.

Eagles can now boast that they have the best-selling album of all time.

Previously, before the advent of streaming technology, the RIAA only counted traditional record sales, but ever since 2013 they've begun counting streams from YouTube, Spotify, and other streaming services.

"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", Don Henley, the group's lead singer and co-founder, said in a statement. Ten song downloads also equal one album sale. (It also spawned one of The Onion's funniest music-related headlines.) Thriller eventually passed the Eagles' record in sales.
