    I'd guess it would be Elvis or the Beatles, but I could be wrong. Also does anyone know the number of records sold by the top artist?

    BTW this is about total sales not the biggest selling single or album/CD of all time.

    It's The Beatles currently, though I've heard Elvis just passed 100 million records so he may now be #2 (whereas Led Zeppelin was in that spot before).

    The Beatles retain the number one position with 160 million units sold.

    This is hardly a poll, is it not?
