Pearl Jam's 'Ten' Officially Sells Over 10 Million Copies
Pearl Jam's "Ten" album has officially became the 22nd full-length release to reach the 10 million sales figure in the US. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the grunge veterans' 1991 debut record has sold over 4,000 copies within the last week, crossing the 10 million mark by about a 1,000. Featuring major hit singles such as "Alive", "Even Flow" and "Jeremy", "Ten" has propelled the Seattle based five-piece into rock 'n' roll stardom. With a total of nine studio releases so far, Pearl Jam still remains as one of the biggest groups of the '90s. "I'm happily shocked to hear that. Wow, we had no idea that it was going to ever do that well. I just felt like it was a really cool record and that I was in a good band", guitarist Mike McCready tells Billboard. Pearl Jam was recently named the third biggest grunge band according to UG users. As far as the new studio release goes, the band has revealed that the 2009's "Backspacer" follow-up can be expected in about "nine to twelve months". Top-selling releases since 1991 also include Metallica's "Black Album", which has sold 15.86 million copies, Shania Twain's "Come On Over" with 15.53 million and "Jagged Little Pill" by Alanis Morissette taking the third place with 14.86 million copies sold according to SoundScan. So this is a pretty big milestone, right? Can "Ten" be found in your record collection and will you be revisiting it anytime soon? Let us know in the comments section below.
