Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' passes 30-million mark in U.S. sales

Adele’s third album, “25,” is on fire commercially, but it still has a long way to go to catch the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” That record has crossed a milestone no other album has ever achieved, surpassing U.S. sales of 30 million copies.

The 1982 multiple Grammy Award-winning album has been certified at the 30-million mark by the Recording Industry Assn. Of America, which monitors shipments in the U.S. by record companies. Its worldwide total has exceeded 100 million, according to Jackson’s label, Epic Records.
