The 100 million club. Rock bands that is.
Classic Rock has Deep Purple on the cover, & it mentions over 100 million in album sales worldwide. Did not know they were that far up the sales ladder. I know Metallica & AC/DC, Floyd along with Zep had made it. Kiss & Queen also & Beatles naturally. Who else? Aerosmith?

ELO

Despite the fact that the majority of the group's material was never researched, audited and certified, ELO collected 21 RIAA awards, 38 BPI awards, and sold over 100 million albums worldwide,

Beatles the only band to sell over 100 mil in US alone according to this site anyways.

Garth is a country artist. & individuals, i.e. Rod Stewart, Phil Collins are rock artists, but not rock bands.

Seems like it. At least in the States. I should think Jackson wins internationally.
