This is the list of the 40 biggest recording artists in terms of album equivalents according to chartmasters. All artists here have sold over 110m albums. I'm curious to see who here wouldn't be considered a legend by ATRL, considering the influx of new artists who debuted in the 2000s who will be joining the list.

I don’t see Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Louis Armstrong or Nat King Cole on this list and all three are BONAFIDE cultural headstones and legendary entertainment figures.

 

List...

 

CANCELLED

It's not a list of legends. It's a list of best selling artists. I'm just trying to see if there's anyone who has sold 110m that wouldn't be considered a legend

Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Aerosmith are undoubtedly all legends and rock gods. I mean c'mon now :skull:

Honestly, they all are. The only one name I haven't heard from these is Dire Straits, but they must be big if they're on this list.

You can't question Led Zeppelin's legend status because of these alone :worship2:

This is the only one I don't think I've ever heard of. But who knows? Maybe they are legendary. 

 

The rest are undoubtedly legendary

Never heard of The Doors or Dire Straights in my life. I’ve heard of everyone else but if you hold a gun to my head I wouldn’t be able to name a single song from most of them.

i don't think this is a question to be asking a forum that stans a little girl whose name no one knew 2 months ago just because she released a mediocre pop hit

 

They're all legends really

The younger generation(s) are not checking for Rod Stewart, Barbra Streisand or Garth Brooks, I can say that with near certainty. I don't know if they can be legends despite that though. Maybe

I had to look them up. This is their most viewed video and I still don't know who they are. Maybe they're mega successful and known in their own country?

Well, they still sell a lot of albums to their older fans so they don't really care if a bunch of 20 years old aren't playing their music on Spotify on a regular basis.

From that list Mariah Carey. She’s an icon tho so just a tier below legend.

Chartmasters hasn't tallied their sales yet. Aretha, and Diana/Supremes probably make it on the list either way.
