The 50 best-selling music artists of all time

England’s greatest rock band holds the top spot on the all-time ranking of best-selling artists by album sales, and it looks untouchable on a bizarre list filled with a number of surprising appearances.

It’s somewhat shocking to find out, for instance, that smooth-jazz saxophonist Kenny G has sold more albums than Eminem, and that Garth Brooks has sold more than Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.

We compiled this list by ranking the most successful acts in music history according to their total certified album units sold in the US, as provided by the RIAA.

Check out the 50 best-selling music artists of all time by album sales:

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article ranked artists by “total certified units” of worldwide sales for albums, singles, and music videos. The information included was outdated and inaccurate, so we’ve updated with proper certified RIAA numbers

Katie Ledecky has resumed her world dominance over the freestyle at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Ledecky, who became a breakout star at the Rio Olympics by taking home four golds and a silver, made a mockery of the field in the 1,500-meter freestyle heats, an event in which she already held the world record.

On Monday, Ledecky swam 15:47.54 in the 1,500 beating the second-place finisher by 17 seconds and the last-place swimmer by 97 seconds.

New Jersey governor Chris Christie shuts down state’s beaches – then sunbathes on deserted Jersey Shore

The budget stalemate between Republican Gov. Chris Christie and the Democrat-controlled Legislature smoldered on Monday with the state government shut down and state parks closed to the public – but not to Christie and his family – as the Fourth of July approaches.

Christie, who spent part of Sunday lounging with his family at a beach in a state park he had ordered closed, said he would sign any budget lawmakers sent to him and blamed the shutdown of nonessential services, including motor vehicle offices, on Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto.

This is What an ISIS Drone Workshop Looks Like

The Islamic State has increasingly used drones and other robotic IEDs against American, Iraqi, and civilian targets in Iraq. And as the Coalition fights its way through Mosul, troops are discovering workshops filled with crude but deadly robotics used to bomb people sometimes dozens of times per day.

Getty Images just published photos of an ISIS factory that’s churning out robotic death machines, including aerial drones and four-wheeled robotic bombs. The photos give us a look at the new ways in which ISIS robots are being churned out to spread death and destruction.

U.S. warplane blasts Syrian drone from sky

WASHINGTON — A U.S. warplane shot down an armed drone linked to Syrian regime forces, the Pentagon said Tuesday, the latest in a series of incidents between U.S.-backed forces and the regime of Bashar Assad that threatens to escalate the conflict there.
