Brits still love their Queen. The one that rocks.
Queen’s blockbuster 1981 collection Greatest Hits is the most-streamed album in the U.K. from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, based on data provided by the Official Charts Company.
Greatest Hits isn’t just great by name. Freddie Mercury and Co.’s hits-stacked set is recognized as the U.K.’s biggest-selling album of all time, shifting more than 6 million units since its release. It’s also logged 973 weeks (and counting) on the Official U.K. Albums Chart.
Coming in at No. 2 on the list of classic albums is Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 Rumours, while Oasis‘ sophomore album from 1995 (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? completes the podium. The Manchester Britpop era juggernauts make a second appearance in the top tier, with their debut Definitely Maybe appearing at No. 6.
