The album Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) has gone platinum 29 times, making it the highest selling album in the United States by a rock group. The Eagles broke up in 1980, but reunited in 1994.
"Life in the Fast Lane," a song by the Eagles, was first featured on the chart-topping album Hotel California in 1976.
