It’s an incredible stat. One in three households now own a copy of Queen's Greatest Hits.

They were big news in their heyday and they are big news today having made UK chart history by becoming the first act to sell six million copies of an individual album.

Their first Greatest Hits collection, which includes the hits We Will Rock You and Bohemian Rhapsody, has extended its lead after being Britain's highest-selling album for several years.

The 1981 compilation tops a list which also includes Abba’s Gold in second spot, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Fab Four in third, Adele in fourth and Oasis in fifth with 4.6 million sales of What’s The Story Morning Glory.

The British rock band, formed in London in 1970, originally consisting of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor have enjoyed countless hits but have you got a favourite?

Perhaps it’s Bohemian Rhapsody? We Will Rock You? Don’t Stop Me Now?

Let us know what your favourite hit is and why in the comments below.
