Most boy bands follow a distinct formula. They are brought together by a rich music producer of sorts and taught to sing, dance synchronically and of course, use a multitude of hair products. After progressively releasing three popular albums, they need to "take a break" and soon, their break becomes a longstanding hiatus.

If you’re keeping score, that means that Swift’s 1989 sits at two million copies sold in just three weeks.

Foo Fighters couldn’t beat Ms. Swift and didn’t even come that close. Foo Fighters sold soundly, moving 190,000 copies of Sonic Highways, good for a #2 bow. Pink Floyd...
