I like Metallica as much as the next guy, but they do not belong at #2, WAY too high. I wouldn't consider them the best Metal band with 4 members. This is why I think Metallica is overrated - ryanrimmel

ABBA has sold about 1/2 BILLION record units (only The Beatles, Elvis, and Michael Jackson have sold more than ABBA making the four of them the four highest record unit selling bands in the history of music.

The tickets for these two concerts were only available by mail application and the reported number of requests amounted to 3.5 million applications, that would have filled Albert Hall 580 times. - ekos

Thank-you ekos. "Now we know how many folks it takes to fill the Albert Hall." - beatles
