Supposedly (no source available, sorry) the top 10 best all-time world-wide selling albums are:

1. Thriller, Michael Jackson - 108 million copies
2. Back in Black, AC/DC - 42 million copies
3. The Bodyguard soundtrack, Whitney Houston/Various artists - 42 million
4. Their Greatest Hits, the Eagles
5. Saturday Night Fever, the Bee Gees/Various Artists - 40 million copies
6. Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd - 40 million copies
7. Bat Out of Hell, Meat Loaf - 37 million copies
8. Come on Over, Shania Twain - 36 million copies
9. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles - 32 million copies
10. Falling Into You, Celine Dion - 32 million copies

I do own numbers 1, 2, 4 and 6. Number 3 must be a mistake.

You own Back in Black? I just cant picture you listening to Angus and the boys. Nice!

Are you kidding me? Back in Black is one of the best rock albums ever made! Hell, I taught networking using AC/DC. I used the opening to the song Back in Black to help explain what a preamble was in the context of network packets. How's that for combining geekiness with rock?
