OK- now I want to find an article- any article in a published newspaper, journal, etc. will do- that says how many albums Queen have sold. Now come on, I'm sure that some of you know of articles which have published estimates, even if they are not official. It doen't have to be official at all, I just need something to quote.

I say this because we desparately need to move Queen up on the Wikipedia list of best selling artists. Although they warn you that this list is not very official, people are quoting sources that clearly over-estimate how many albums certain other artists have sold. I figure that we should do the same for Queen. So help me find an article that says that Queen have sold 200 million!! I saw this estimate at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but I cannot substantiate it with a link to an actual article.

Okay. Official number is on the back sleeve of Champions Of The World VHS. "Queen have released 20 albums, sold more than 130 millions records...". But it was in 1995.

Thanks Serry!
You just helped move Queen up about 50 slots with that piece of info alone. I will have to get that fact up there.

OK guy,
thanks to serry Queen have now been moved from #85 up to a tie at #20. However, this is based on 1995 sales of 130 million. Anyone have a higher estimate yet from more recently?
