Eagles – 130+ Million
The Eagles are actually the biggest-selling American band of all time as they have an estimated total of over 150 million records sold worldwide. Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) even shares the top spot with Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ as the best-selling album ever in the US with 29 million copies sold. Plus it’s one of the highest-selling albums globally with 45 million copies sold worldwide.
U2 – 105 Million
When U2 first started out, they were a small rebellious group from Ireland and then they went on to pretty much conquer the world. Most say that their success comes from their front man, Bono, and all his charms (we can’t really complain there). To date, they have won 22 Grammy Awards which is more than any other band. Back in 2005, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. On top of all that, their U2 360° Tour set the most incredible record for the highest-grossing concert tour with $736 million in ticket sales, and for the highest-attended tour with over 7.2 million tickets sold. Yeah, we know, that’s pretty awesome.
