The Eagles’ greatest hits compilation featuring rock classics such as “Take It Easy” and “Witchy Woman” has dethroned Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as the top-selling album of all time, according to industry data released on Monday, reports Reuters.

The album, called “Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975,” has racked up sales or streams of more than 38 million since its release in February 1976, the Recording Industry Association of America said.

That knocked Jackson’s 1982 pop sensation, “Thriller,” with more than 33 million sales or streams, to second place.

The No. 3 slot belongs to another Eagles album, “Hotel California,” at 26 million.
