(What’s the story) Morning Glory? finishes its impressive run of sales from every format on 26,55 million equivalent album sales. There is no way to discredit this total. Its ongoing catalog sales and streams are also mind-blowing allowing it to climb more and more.

Definitely Maybe and Be Here Now fail to reach 10 million units overall, a disappointing result considering all the claims made about those albums. With that said the figures are still very solid.

The drop of fame which happened with Standing on the Shoulder of Giants has been brutal and the band was never able to recover fully. The album remains on 3 million almost the same as its follow ups Heathen Chemistry and Don’t Believe the Truth. The band’s last album Dig Out Your Soul closes the list with 1,9 million sales.

In total, Oasis has moved 58,7 million equivalent album sales. This puts them at the bottom of the Top 50 all-time biggest bands. People who flagged them as the new Beatles may see this number as lower than expected. If we ignore the unrealistic comparisons, making the all-time Top 50 of your category is an amazing achievement. It must be said that the UK alone represents an insane 21,7 million units of their sales. This makes them one of the very top selling acts ever there and explains the distinct perception of their success one may have depending on where they live.

The following pages list their most successful songs as well as their records and achievements. Do not forget to check our amazing cross-artists lists posted inside the CSPC: Data Collector which includes the full listing of all CSPC results compiled so far to better gauge their position in the history of the music industry.

Hello, I might misunderstand this, but the daily increase (LD) of Definitely Maybe is lower than the Spotify increase. Isn’t that physically impossible?

Clockingbell

Hello, could you explain why the total Spotify numbers of definitely maybe is higher than the total auto update? That should also include video streams, so I expected the total auto update to be higher. Thanks in advance!

Hi there! In your receipt database I found an item about Dig Out Your Soul for a shipment of 70k in Italy by YE 2008 (12 weeks after its release). In this article it’s only at 65k. Did the album stay on the shelves that much?

Hi Chartmasters!
Do you think Morning Glory has already overtaken 21 as the best selling studio album of all time in the UK? The difference was about 110k in 2017 and MG is placed higher on the UK albums chart almost every week since then, I’m not sure how much pure sales that means, though.

Hi again! I’m sure you have other things on your mind and this probably isn’t the major issue in the music bizz these days, but it is a relevant thing to know if it’s a close race. I would say it’s actually fun too. Morning Glory has sold somewhere in the range of 40-60k in vinyls since dec 17 and probably some cd’s as well. Now I don’t know Adele’s sales, but MG probably hasn’t caught up with 21. Might it happen soon? A vinyl re-issue is set for october, so that might help. If the new Adele album is… Read more »
