Rock Bands Dominating Physical Album Sales

A background of vinyl records. The labels are not real but fake artists, producers, legal text and logo's.

Who says rock is dead? When it comes to selling albums – real albums – rock and roll still can’t be beat.

The latest Pure Album Sales chart from Chart Data has rock bands holding down 9 of the top 10 spots – including names like Metallica, the Beatles, Queen, Foo Fighters, and AC/DC.

The chart measures actual physical album sales, rather than ‘equivalent units’ that factor in streaming numbers like Billboard‘s sales charts.

Do you still buy physical albums? CDs, vinyl, or cassette?
