A rock album featuring classic hits such as We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, and We are the Champions has made UK chart history.
Queen have become the first act to sell six million copies of an individual album.
The band’s first Greatest Hits collection has been Britain’s highest-selling album for several years. But the Official Charts Company said one in three British families now owned a copy of the 1981 compilation after surpassing the six million figure.
The album leads the all-time album chart by some 900,000 copies, ahead of Abba’s 1992 greatest hits collection Gold.
The Official Charts Company said the album - which also features Another One Bites The Dust, Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls - regularly sells several thousand copies per week, particularly around Christmas.
