Michael Jackson released his 6th LP “Thriller” on Nov. 30, 1982. In just over a year, it became—and currently remains—the world’s best-selling album, with estimated sales surpassing 65 million copies. It is the best-selling album in the United States and the first album to be certified 32x multi-platinum, having shipped 32 million album-equivalent units.
The album won a record-breaking eight Grammy Awards in 1984, including Album of the Year. Seven singles were released from the album, all of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
We know there will be some that will say Michael Jackson was pop not Rock. We guess it depends on what your personal definition of Rock and Roll is.
How many of you had this LP in ‘the day’ and, how many of you still listen to it?
Happy 35th Birthday to “Thriller”!!
