Listen to Queen on iHeartRadio

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are thanking their British fans for all their support, which is putting the band in the record books. 

The Official Charts Company says group's 1981 "Greatest Hits" set has become the first album to sell more than 6 million copies in the UK.  

The 17-track compilation includes such classics as "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Killer Queen," "You're My Best Friend," and "We Will Rock You." 

Queen's "Greatest Hits" also has a secure hold on the top spot on the list.  The second place album, ABBA's "Gold - Greatest Hits," trails the Queen disc by approximately 900,000 sales.
