Fleetwood Mac Dominate iTunes Rock Albums Chart in 5 Countries

Fleetwood Mac on the Top 10 Rock Albums Chart on iTunes
It's amazing what a tour announcement and an album reissue can do to catalogue sales. Sure brings back a lot of interest... Number 1 in 5 countries with either "Rumours" Deluxe Edition or "Greatest Hits"







"Landslide" is currently the #1 Rock song in the USA after the Superbowl airing of the Budweiser commercial that used the original version.  The track is also #3 in Canada.  "Go Your Own Way" is currently #10 in the UK and #10 in The Netherlands. "Tusk" is #2 in New Zealand (They must have seen the FX TV Show "The American" that featured "Tusk" quite heavily through out the debut episode this past week.)

How much money has Stevie made on Landslide alone? And for those of you hoping she'd drop it from the set list for the upcoming Mac tour...forget about it. Thanks to Budweiser, Landslide will be in the set list for the next decade. :-)

Stevie probably owes half of her $70 million fortune to "Landslide" alone lol

Lanslide is a classic and those who are not die hard will always love it, because many have just "discovered" it. We need to hear some other classics in commercials...Beautiful Child for Pampers..Dreams for sleep aides...

You can watch the extended Budweiser commercial on Youtube. 30 additional seconds of footage.

At a cost of $4M for a 60 sec spot to advertise during the Superbowl, it's no surprise it was trimmed to the shortest time possible, but the extended version is has a way-cooler ending during the reunion at the end.

Yeah, "Landslide" will always be the bands "Stairway to Heaven"

Greg, your comment made me bust out laughing! I know how you feel. But there would probably be a lot more upset fans if they didn't have it in the set list.

Love it.

Let's just hope they never use "Tusk" for Trojan condoms, or Viagra.
