Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ is the decade’s best selling dance vinyl
Among dance albums on vinyl, Daft Punk‘s 2013 release, Random Access Memories, sold the most vinyl units of the decade. The LP, which netted Grammy awards for Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 56th annual Grammy Awards, was also the best-selling album of the decade on digital vinyl storefront, Discogs. Across genres, Random Access Memories was the 62nd most popular album on vinyl.
Over the past ten years, vinyl’s resurgence and subsequent regain of a niche in pop-culture listening methodology led to high sales of albums beyond the electronic purview. Of note, Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours was the highest grossing vinyl album of the decade, followed closely by Amy Winehouse‘s Back To Black, and Pink Floyd‘s The Dark Side Of The Moon, which claimed the second and third places on Official Chart’s list of the top 100 best-selling vinyl LPs of the decade.
