Queens of the Stone Age, Gorillaz, The National Top Discogs’ 2017 Rock & Pop Genre Sales

A new year, a new set of charts for the one gone by: Today, Billboard reveals the top 10 most-collected albums on Discogs in the rock, indie rock, punk, hardcore and pop genres for 2017. Among those five genres, Queens of the Stone Age‘s August 2017 LP Villains was the highest-seller overall, leading the rock charts with 8,166 copies sold, according to data provided by Discogs. Gorillaz‘s latest album Humanz led the pop chart with 5,776 sales, while The National‘s first album in four years, Sleep Well Beast, led the indie rock chart with 5,632 copies sold.

Discogs, the crowd-sourced online music marketplace that has become a key digital shopping destination for vinyl lovers, passed several milestones in 2017, boosting its number of contributors past 375,000, reaching 9 million releases on the site (averaging 113,000 monthly submissions over 2017, as of October) and setting a new sales record for 7″ singles, when a limited-edition pressing of The Beatles‘ debut single “Love Me Do” sold for $14,757 on Oct. 9, $243 shy of the site’s all-time sales record, a double 12″ DJ version of Prince‘s Black Album.

Among punk titles, Nick Cave and the Bad SeedsLovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 1984-2014 led the way with 1,733 copies sold, while Converge‘s The Dusk In Us topped all hardcore albums with 1,897 sales.
