962 weeks. That’s the amount of cumulative time Pink Floyd’s iconic album Dark Side of the Moon has spent on the Billboard 200 album chart (so far) since its release 48 years ago.
(Fun fact: The next longest run is Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Legend, which only has netted 719 weeks thus far. How pathetic!)
Sarcasm aside, that type of staying power is incredibly rare, and it’s unlikely we’ll see anything else quite like it in music. However, there are other mind-blowing streaks throughout history. Here are just five of them.
