Over 6 million copies of Queen‘s Greatest Hits have been sold in the U.K. since the album’s release in 1981.

According to Official Charts, that also means it’s the top selling album in the U.K. of all time.

By comparison, there have been 8 million copies sold in the U.S., but the U.S. has a much larger population then the U.K., about 317 million and 63 million respectively.

Queen’s Greatest Hits includes “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Are the Champions” and many other Queen songs that have risen to the top of the charts.
