Since at least 2008, Billboard has shown the band to be one of the “greatest of all time” American bands in singles chart success, and since 2015, the “greatest of all time” American band in album chart success as well.

In 1971, the band was the first rock act to sell out Carnegie Hall for a week.
To date, the band has sold over 40 million units in the U.S., with 23 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. They have had five consecutive number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and 20 top-ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.
