March 28, 1973

On this day in 1973, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200. This was the band’s first No. 1 on U.S. charts, their prior albums having little chart success.

Eleven days earlier, Dark Side of the Moon would enter the charts at No. 95 and within 10 days reach the No. 1 spot. The critically-acclaimed album remained on the Billboard Top 200 for an unheard of 827 weeks to-date – including 591 consecutive weeks from 1973 to 1988, a world record – making it one of the highest-selling albums of all time.

Dark Side of the Moon is currently sitting at No. 133 on the Top 200.
