RIAA certifies The Eagles “Greatest Hits” album as the best selling album of all time replacing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”

Last Updated on

Officially certified as 38x platinum compared to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” 33x.  The Eagles’ “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)” was released in 1976 and was their first compilation album.  The album contained a selection of songs from their first four albums during the years of 1971-1975; Thriller was released in 1982.

The album has maintained the recognition by the RIAA as being the top-selling album of all time for years before the death of King of Pop, Michael Jackson, in 2009.  The death of Jackson had helped propel the sales of the Thriller album pass The Eagles’ album until recently.  

Prompted by The Eagles’ recording label, the RIAA recalculated sales and they proved to help The Eagles regained the greatest selling album titles again.
