Congratulations are in order for The Rolling Stones, who are the first band to ever hit No. 1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart in six different decades

The Rolling Stones have a new place in rock ‘n’ roll history, as the longstanding band has become the first band ever to land at No. 1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart in six separate decades.

The album that pushed the Stones to No. 1 in 2020 is a new reissue of the band’s 1973 album, “Goats Head Soup,” which hit No. 1 on the chart last week. The reissue pushed U.K. singer-songwriter Declan McKenna to No. 2 on the chart to take the lead spot.

“Goats Head Soup” was a hit for the Rolling Stone back in 1973 when it was released and spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Official Albums Chart. All in all, the Stones have scored No. 1 albums on the U.K. chart 13 times, making them tied for the second most No. 1s with Elvis Presley and Robbie Williams. The Beatles have the most No.1 albums on the Official Albums Chart with 17.

The Rolling Stones’ reissue of “Goats Head Soup” is out in several formats, including a jam-packed Super Deluxe box set with a newly remastered edition of the original album, as well as 10 bonus tracks with outtakes, alternate versions and three previously unheard songs. The package also features a live album recorded on the band’s 1973 tour, called “The Brussels Affair.”
