So I guess if you're using album sales to justify a band's greatness, they're pretty similar with a slight edge to the Eagles, considering the fact that the other albums have been out for about 30 years less.

Again, using album sales to claim that a band isn't terrible is sorta silly, especially when you consider that Creed and Nickelback have sold like over 50 million albums combined.

But I'm not a fan of these advanced statistics, I prefer to use my ears to form an opinion. And my ears say all three are pretty bad.
I see what you did there…

I like it.
