The Fab Four have proven to be just as popular in the digital age. Rolling Stone reports that the Beatles have sold more than 450,000 albums and 2 million songs worldwide in the first week that their music became available for purchase on iTunes.
On November 16, the band's 13 original albums, two-volume "Past Masters" compilation and "1962-66" and "1967-70" collections were released on iTunes as both albums and individual songs.
As of Tuesday, "Abbey Road," the White Album and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" had landed on iTunes's top 20 albums chart, and 15 albums had made the top 100.
According to Rolling Stone, "Abbey Road" was the best-selling album in the U.S., while the best-selling song was "Here Comes the Sun." Seven of the Beatles's singles currently sit on the top 100 song chart, including "Let It Be," which is listed twice because it appears on two different albums.
