Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ Named Best-Selling Vinyl Album Of The 21st Century

Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours has been named the best-selling vinyl album of the 21st century, from records that were released between 1970 and 1999.

Despite never sending one of its timeless tracks to No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart, Rumours is one of the most successful and enduring LPs ever released in the U.K. – it’s spent a total of 1,042 weeks inside the Official Albums Chart since its release in 1977.

Fleetwood Mac’s only U.K. No. 1 single remains 1968’s Albatross.

This week, Rumours is back inside the Top 10 of the Official Albums Chart, solidifying its status as one of the most popular records with the British public of all time.

According to Official Charts Company data, Rumours has logged 280,000 vinyl sales since the beginning of the new millennium.

Coming in at No. 2 is Pink Floyd‘s 1973 magnum opus Dark Side of the Moon, considered to be one of the greatest rock albums ever made. Dark Side of the Moon still ranks as one of the Top 10 best-selling albums of all time in the U.K..

Completing the Top 5 are Nirvana‘s generation-defining second album Nevermind (No. 3), Oasis‘s best-selling album in the U.K., (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? (No. 4) and Queen‘s Greatest Hits (No. 5), which remains the best-selling album of all time in the UK.
