No. 6: Pearl Jam, ‘Ten’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Pearl Jam, 'Ten'
Epic

While Nirvana’s sophomore disc ‘Nevermind’ may be the landmark disc of the grunge movement, there is no bigger debut disc in the genre than Pearl Jam‘s ‘Ten.’ From the opening sounds of the lead single ‘Alive,’ it was clear that Pearl Jam was a band on a mission. ‘Even Flow’ provided a pummeling follow-up ready made for the concert stage.

The group reached MTV stardom with the powerful storytelling of ‘Jeremy’ and ‘Black’ was arguably the best track of the entire set, though not reaching the commercial success of its counterparts. Fans also latched onto ‘Porch,’ ‘Why Go’ and ‘Once’ off the debut disc, making it one of the deepest debut records in rock history.
