Add another accolade to the lengthy list of records achieved by The Beatles.

According to a report in Forbes, the Fab Four have topped artists including Oasis, Adele and Pink Floyd for the honour of Britain’s biggest-selling album, with the band’s game-changing 1967 classic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band officially the U.K.’s most popular album ever.

Forbes cites a new list compiled by the Official Charts Company to mark National Album Day on Oct. 13, with Sgt. Pepper racking up album sales of 135 million across more than 60 years.
