Rush Lands at the #2 Spot on VH-1's 25 Biggest Hit Making Trios List
Utilizing both the number of Billboard chart entries along with RIAA sales certifications, VH-1 has come up with a list of the 25 Biggest Hit Making Trios of all time:
Measuring the success rates of rock stars is never an easy thing, but by calculating the number of Billboard chart entries along with RIAA sales certifications, we’ve come up with a pretty good scorecard for these threesomes who’ve made sweet sweet love to your ears over the years. We’ve got classics like the Bee Gees, Green Day, ZZ Top and the Goo Goo Dolls, who’ve spent decades assaulting the charts with hit after hit. And then we’ve also got some (relative) newbies like Lady Antebellum, who are already making a bid for the record books with just a few MONSTER sellers under their belt. Head to the gallery above and check out our list of the 25 most successful musical trios in rock history, balancing longevity and sales. Enjoy!
The decidedly pop-oriented list had a few surprising entries including Rush landing in the #2 spot. Rush was listed as having an impressive 42 songs that entered the Top 40 singles list while also having 11 Top 10 albums. Interestingly, the Bee Gees, who were ranked #1 on the list, only had 30 Top 40 songs and 6 Top 10 albums. Hmm.

  1. FWIW The Bee Gees had music on the soundtrack of a generation, Saturday Night Fever that sold a bazillion copies and spawned several #1 hits.

  3. The Bee Gees were only a trio of singers. They always had a large backing band when they played live. Rush is a genuine trio.
