Bryan Adams is one of these artists who remind us that time passes. The iconic pretty face rocker of the 90s is now almost 60. He is still pretty active though with his 14th album, Shine A Light, out this month. One of the first Canadian superstar, he is notably responsible for some of the most remembered ballads of all-time.
From the Four Horsemen to the Metal Kings, the road has been very long for rock legends Metallica. Currently in the final phase of their 159-dates WorldWired Tour, the band proved with their last album Hardwired… to Self-Destruct that they remain hugely popular. Let’s review their impressive numbers from the very start up to date.
The Independent, Business Insider, Digital Music News, they all published “Best Selling Artists Ever” lists that placed Garth Brooks as the second best selling artist ever, number one among solo acts. One would expect these sources to be reliable. It sounds very hard to believe the country giant outsold the likes Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson yet. So, where is the truth?
Of course, the elitist press will think it’s outrageous to call the most streamed albums from the 90s the greatest ones. Some artists are arguably critics darlings, but some others are favored by the general public and we are left wondering who are we to contradict them. Surely, nearly 20 years after the end of this era, to belong to the most remembered music that came out of it tells something. It tells they are regarded as the greatest by a lot of people. So which are these albums that continue to appeal the masses so many years after their release?
The Eagles‘ Greatest Hits 1971-1975 sold 38 million copies in the US, making it the best selling album of all-time in the country. That’s a good story, at least good enough to make headlines of major American media for a pair of days. Many will simply think “wow!” when reading about it, charts followers’ reaction has been “How?” yet.

It has now been 20 years since the release of the earthquake titled Titanic. The movie, its actors, the VHS, the DVD, the Soundtrack, its theme song, everything about it was utterly massive. During 4 months the entire World kept watching a ship sinking.
Back in mid-1995, Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette was unknown outside of her native country. A couple of years later, her global debut had outsold career peaks of Madonna, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson. As a definitive evidence of that success, this album, Jagged Little Pill, has now been adapted into a musical.
