Queen Makes History On The U.S. Album Chart

Queen have made US album chart history with their 1981 “Greatest Hits” collection.

Almost three decades after its release, the package has logged its 55th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Catalog Albums chart, to earn the distinction of being the rock album with the longest-run atop the list in its’ 29-year history. The feat places Queen’s “Greatest Hits” set behind only Bob Marley & The Wailers’ 1984 hits album, “Legend”, which has headed the catalog chart for 126 weeks; the UK rockers notched ahead of Creed’s 1997 debut, “My Own Prison”, to take second place on the all-time list, while the Florida band’s set moves to third place at 54 weeks.

The Catalog Albums chart ranks the most popular catalog albums of the week in the US; catalog albums are generally titles that are at least 18 months old, or holiday albums in their second holiday season.
