During the 90’s the buzz was about Nirvana and Metallica albums that came out once in a year, unlike today. But the best part of it was the anxiety and long queues outside music stores to grab CD’s of the latest album. Today, all the hype is digital – right from the announcement of album release to the actual release of the album on YouTube. Reliving those memories, we go back to those good ol’ times and find out which albums have been the all-time best-sellers and why!
