Assuming solo artists are permitted:

 

1. The Beatles

2. (Joint) Buddy Holly, Kendall Payne (not possible to separate)

4. (joint) Queen, Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Cash (again how to separate)

 

(Yes thats 6 but it would be unfair to leave one out)

I'm including solo Beatle stuff in "the Beatles" BTW. Otherwise that'd be like half my top five.
