They've sold 250 trillion billion million albums worldwide; that's the all-time record. They're the best-selling band ever because the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin are all myth.

A typical queenzone asshole. It never amazes me the assholes who come to this site. The man/women asked a simple question about how queen rate in record sales worldwide compared to other great artist. I'm sure queen have done very well, but not sure exactly the numbers or where they compare with U2 or ZEP. I'm sure we could find this out with some simple research.

Okay, I'm sorry. To be serious, they've sold around 190 million albums and 60-70 million singles according to sources linked provided by Wikipedia. Wikipedia says 300 million records sold on the "List of best-selling music artists" page but it's probably 250-260 million. They're pretty much tied with Led Zeppelin for worldwide sales and definitely have sold MUCH more than U2. Queen's really popular in Asia. It's not the most popular Western band here in India(because most people here have crap taste- Mariah Carey is the best-selling artist here...that explain anything?) but it is in most other places of Asia, especially in Japan. Japanese people go ga-ga for Queen. =P
