    Adele has toppled Pink Floyd on the UK's all-time biggest selling albums list, per the NME.com.

    Adele's sophomore set 21 has sold more than Dark Side of the Moon, a rock 'n' roll classic.

    21 has sold over 4 million copies in the singer's native land. It is the seventh highest selling platter of all time. If she sells 12,000 more copies, which she will, she'll cruise on past Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms for the sixth slot. Could she crack the Top 5? You betcha!

    What is your favorite song on Adele's 21?
