(Gibson) On this day in 1988, Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon finally left Billboard's Hot 200 Album Chart after a record-breaking 741 weeks. Gibson takes a look back: It's a record that has never been duplicated. It's a feat that rock and roll will never see again.

Pink Floyd not only unleashed a rock classic when they put out The Dark Side of the Moon in 1973, they created a monster. While it would only hold the #1 spot for a week, it would go on to become one of the biggest selling albums in music history, remaining on the Billboard 200 chart for the next 15 years.

After a record-shattering 741 straight weeks on the chart, Dark Side fell off of the Top 200 on this day in 1988, concluding an amazing run that made the members of Pink Floyd extremely wealthy. - more on this story
