Legendary Irish rock band U2 have made history when it’s new album, Songs of Experience, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts this week. Not only is this the band’s eighth No. 1 album, but it is the only time in history that a group has earned a No. 1 album for four consecutive decades, from the ’80s to the 2010s. Songs of Experience is U2’s 14th studio album and was released Dec. 1. The album’s 186,000 equivalent sales marks the biggest first week release for a rock record this year.
