Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten’ Surpasses 10 Million Copies Sold

Pearl Jam‘s ‘Ten’ album had already achieved diamond certification for shipping more than 10 million copies, but the landmark record has now officially sold more than 10 million copies.

Billboard reports that this past week the album sold nearly 4,000 copies, which helped it pass the milestone. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the disc became the 22nd album to reach the mark since Nielsen began tracking sales data in 1991. Since the start of that period, Metallica‘s self-titled “black” album holds the mark for sales, moving 15.86 million copies.

‘Ten’ launched Pearl Jam’s career in 1991, beginning with the breakout single ‘Alive,’ followed by the furious energy of ‘Even Flow’ and the major MTV hit ‘Jeremy.’ In addition, the song ‘Black’ got plenty of radio play and tracks like ‘Why Go,’ ‘Once,’ and ‘Oceans’ became fan favorites.

Pearl Jam are currently working on a new album and have booked a handful of dates this summer, including a show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
