The Eagles greatest hits album beat Michael Jackson to take bestselling album ever in the US



The Eagles greatest hits album has surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller to become the bestselling album of all time in the US.
 
The record has been certified 38x platinum, meaning sales and digital streams have reached 38 million copies, according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
 
 
"Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)" is five million ahead of Jackson's classic, which is currently on 33 million sales.


The Eagles' Hotel California album, released in 1976, is now 26x platinum, making it the third-best selling album of all time in the US, the RIAA said.


In 2006, the last time sales of their greatest hits album were counted, it was 29x platinum.


Sales and streams for Thriller were updated last year.
