Adele may be ruling the charts around the world at the moment but it isn't her record-breaking '21' that has been voted the best British album of the past 60 years.
Iron Maiden kicked the London singer's album to the curb with their classic 1982 release 'The Number Of The Beast'.
The HMV survey inspired by the Diamond Jubilee saw Depeche Mode's 'Violator' take second place followed by The Beatles' 'Sgt Pepper' and 'Abbey Road'.
Speaking about the achievement, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickenson said: "We're astonished and delighted to hear 'The Number of the Beast' has been named Number One. Some of the most influential and classic albums from the past 60 years were in the running so it’s a testament to our incredibly loyal and ever-supportive fans who voted for us."
He continued: "Iron Maiden is a proudly British band, so to win this category as voted for by the British public, in Jubilee year, is very special. Thank you to all our wonderful fans!“
Danny Boyle's 'Trainspotting' was named best British film along with Monty Python and the Holy Grail'.
