    The facts speak for themselves...:dontknow:

    The Beatles have amassed 19 #1 albums
    The Rolling Stones with 9
    Led Zeppelin and U2, with 7 each

    Dave Matthews Band lands its sixth #1 album on The Billboard 200 with Away From The World. This puts DMB in a tie with Eagles for the most #1 albums by an American band in chart history. :facepalm:

    But Metallica remains (by far) the American band that has sold the most albums since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales for Billboard in 1991. Metallica has sold 53,532,000 albums in this period (and many more in the eight years before that). :punk:

    Where's JDwhatever? He gets all fucking worked up about one country caring about stuff from another country. Like Canadians shouldn't watch the NFL because it's from America, Americans shouldn't watch the BBC Office, etc. this'll probably wig him out.

    Nah. I don't think they've had many #1 albums, if any. #1 in Canada, but that's it.

    Album sales kind of suck when it comes to ranking a band as payola had a big part how much a group was played on the radio. When it comes to American bands though we have Chuck Berry, Elvis, Jimi, Lynyrd, Allman Brothers, Door, Areosmith, GnR, Metallica and Van Halen. We started rock and roll and my two favorite bands happen to be American.
