Jackson's Thriller was reportedly last certified in 2017.

As the Associated Press reports, Greatest Hits has now surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller as the best-selling album of all time in the US.

What's perhaps even more impressive is that Eagles' Hotel California is third on the list, having sold 26 million copies. Thriller's numbers were updated previous year with the album certified 33x platinum.

Further proving the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers' enormous popularity, The Eagles' other 1976 release, Hotel California, sits at No. 3 all-time at 26x platinum. The last time RIAA counted the number was in 2006, and at that time, it had sold 29 million records.

The Eagles pass Michael Jackson for the best-selling album of all time

RIAA's platinum status once equaled the sale of one million albums or songs, but in 2013, the company began incorporating digital streaming from YouTube, Spotify, and other music services to calculate certification for albums and songs.

The band released that mega-hit in 1976. "It's been quite a ride", he said in a statement. Now, 1,500 streams of an album are equivalent to an album sale, while 10 song downloads equals one album sale.

The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and received the Kennedy Center Honor in 2016. Now, though, the Recording Industry Association of America has retabulated the numbers, and it turns out The Eagles have taken back the best-seller crown - and they've done it decisively.

As it was previously reported, Scorpio, was streamed over a billion times within one week of its release, surpassing Post-Malone's beerbongs and Bentleys, which came out shortly before.
