I'm thinking everyone's wrong. I don't know what the answer is, but I think I've heard it before and it was much older, maybe from the 60's or early 70's. I'd like to say the rolling stones, although I'm sure it isn't, just cause they're my no.1 band of all time!

There are three questions running in this thread:

1. bparker1188

What band had the number 1 selling record in the world ever?

2. Mindcrime

What was the only Hard Rock / Metal song to hit #1 ...

3. Batman

Name the 1st band to have all 6* of their albums in the charts at once.

Have the correct answers been identified?

Sorry I passed along some spurious hearsay.

( Hey Jude was once largest selling single record)

As far as a single record by a band, the Beatles are beaten out by Bill Haley & the Comets (Rock Around the Clock). And the Beatles' own I Want To Hold Your Hand tops their Hey Jude. [Remarkably, the Eagles Greatest Hits and many other albums have vastly outsold these singles.]

Elton John's record did bang Bing Crosby's White Christmas out of the Number One Seller spot.

Well I meant Rock song that made it on the Pop Charts, there's a Mainstream Rock chart as well, but finding info about that is hard, even on the net.

For the Iron Butterfly album, it peaked at #4 on the Pop Albums charts in 1969, but I don't know how long it stayed for.
