Veteran artists dominate Billboard’s just-released year-end chart of 2020’s Top Rock Albums.
Queen‘s Greatest Hits is #1, followed by Elton John‘s Diamonds compilation at #2, Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours at #3, Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits at #4, and The Beatles‘ Abbey Road at #5.
Also landing in the tally’s top 10 are Journey‘s Greatest Hits at #6, The Beatles’ 1 compilation at #7, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ Greatest Hits at #8, and AC/DC‘s Back in Black at #9.
Not surprisingly, several of the artists who had top 10 entries on the Top Rock Albums list also appear on Billboard’s Top Rock Artists tally for 2020. Fleetwood Mac is #3, The Beatles are #4, Queen is #6 and Elton is #9. Alternative rockers Panic! at the Disco took the top spot on the list, which is determined by factors including radio airplay, and sales and streaming data.
