Can you accept Zeppelin, please? Most of us who take a lot of these quizzes are in the habit of typing the one-word common name for almost everything, to save time.

The data comes from here:

Ok, so this is in the US, not worldwide.
Nov 17, 2014
Ahh, a note that states US sales only would have been useful. AC/DC was the first thought for hard rock, and probably true for worldwide?

I think it's time for a little update - there have been changes over the last years

Kenny G is elevator music at best, not jazz
Nov 9, 2012
Can you accept Kelly for R. Kelly, please?
Jan 5, 2013
Tupac beats NWA, Beasty Boys and Eminem? Surprising.
Oct 29, 2018
Pretty sure Em has 45 million

Please don't call Kenny G a jazz musician. As a matter of fact, please don't call Kenny G a musician at all. It's demeaning.

Not sure why everyone hates on Kenny G. Sure he looks like a goofball, and the soprano sax looks weird, and he playes out of the side of his mouth...but he's good. I like him...not saying I would listen to his album with a bunch of my friends over, but it's still pretty good.

You have catagories for Celtic and Disco but not metal? Wow!

If Justin Bieber had sold more records than Celine Dion then I would finally have lost all faith in the world.
Jun 13, 2014
Rush should outsell them both :p.
May 27, 2014
Simon and Garfunkel are folk rock. I believe Bob Dylan has outsold them in that genre, but both crossed over into other genres as well.
Sep 4, 2014
If these figures are US only (as seems to be the case), could you please say so in the quiz description?
Oct 20, 2014
I would have kept Kenny G out of this quiz on principle...lol

I'd never have guessed that Beatles = pop. When they were playing pop wasn't even invented yet, it was rock 'n' roll.
Mar 13, 2016
The term "pop music" was used back then. They're definitely either pop or rock, but regardless of what category they would fall in, they really should be everyone's first guess. As the best-selling artist of all time, they're clearly going to fill one of the categories.

I got Simon & Garfunkel but I missed Michael Jackson...
Jul 3, 2015
I thought Pink Floyd sold more album's than Led Zeppelin
Apr 4, 2016
Michael Jackson was the king of pop...
Apr 18, 2016
Does Bob Dylan span too many genres to be considered folk? He must have sold more albums than Simon & Garfunkel, surely?
May 29, 2018
this is stupid because it is only in America. Why can't it be in the world. Why does it have to be only American sales? People like Garth Brooks for example, not many people outside America know him compared to all the other best selling artists.
May 29, 2018
Exact worldwide sales are not known.
