Fame-Charting Band Infographics

This Colorful Infographic Plots The Beatles Record Sales

— June 15, 2013 — Pop Culture
A new infographic has just been released by Confused.com charting the chronology of The Beatles record sales, starting with Please Please Me and ending with Abbey Road.

The infographic makes it easy and entertaining to see just how incredibly huge The Beatles was as a band. Abbey Road alone went platinum 12 times. Some artists hardly manage to reach platinum status once, let alone a dozen times. In total, The Beatles have sold over 200 million records -- an astounding number for a single rock band.

Confused.com extends its Beatles infographic to include each member's post-Beatles career. This section reveals that Sir Paul McCartney has been the most successful, with five platinum, ten gold and two silver records in the United Kingdom alone.

The Beatles continues to hold the status of the most influential rock band of all time. This infographic makes it clear that the Beatles fandom will never die out, but continue to pass on through generations infected with Beatlemania.
Trend Themes
1. Sales-charting Infographics - Creating colorful infographics that chart the sales of famous bands can be a new trend in the music industry, offering fans an engaging way to evaluate and relive their favorite artists' career successes.

3. Legacy-focused Infographics - Creating infographics that explore the lasting legacy of a popular band can be a new trend that allows fans to relive the band's music and achievements and introduce it to younger generations.
Industry Implications
1. Music - Using infographics can be a disruptive innovation in the music industry, as it can enhance fans' engagement with their favorite bands and offer new ways to evaluate and understand their legacies.

3. Education - Using infographics can be a disruptive innovation in the education industry, as it can engage students in musical history and culture and help them understand the evolution of popular music genres and artists.
