35 years ago today, Led Zeppelin’s eighth studio album, In Through the Out Door, reached number one in the US. It was their final album of entirely new material and the band’s last release before the death of drummer, John Bonham.
The album remained on the US top spot for seven weeks and sold three million copies just one month after its release. It is also the album by the band that has spent the most weeks at the top of the charts.
To date, the album has sold six million copies in the US.
Only The Beatles have sold more record in the US than Led Zeppelin, making them one of the most successful rock bands of all time.
