Pearl Jam Debut Hits 10 Million Sales Mark

Pearl Jam Debut Hits 10 Million Sales Mark -

Pearl Jam's album 'Ten,' which features classics such as 'Even Flow,' 'Oceans' and 'Alive,' has now sold over 10 million copies in the US.

Billboard reports that 'Ten' has now surpassed the colossal 10 million mark, making the Seattle veterans 1991 debut only the 22nd album to reach the landmark sales point since Nielsen Soundscan began tracking sales figures in 1991.

In the week ending Feb. 17, 'Ten' shifted nearly 4,000 copies (up 159% over the previous week) pushing its total sales to just over 10 million.

Guitarist Mike McCready said of the feat:

"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."

'Ten' now joins Linkin Park's 'Hybrid Theory,' Usher's 'Confessions' and Adele's '21' to reach 10 million US sales since the start of 2012.

Since 1991 according to SoundScan the biggest selling album is Metallica's self-titled 1991 release, which has sold 15.86 million.
