    Heard Freebeer and Hotwings on the radio this morning talking about it. They went through the whole list. It was pretty funny. Creed came up and one guys said the only grunge band he liked was PJ. :D
    Forced to endure, what I cannot forgive.

    I have three copies of Ten myself. An Epic cassette from back in the day, an Epic CD that I ripped and haven't seen since, and the Redux LP.

    Thanks for the link :) . I shared this article on my tumblr page and somebody anonymously sent me this comment :roll: :roll: :

    "Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten’ Album Hits 10 Million in U.S. SalesPosted 1 day ago" ITS About the sound NOT the sales. Eddie Vedders above all that crap no?"


    So I responded with this :) :
    "Selling 10 million albums is a massive achievement and is something for Pearl Jam to be proud of. It means that more people have the opportunity to listen to “Ten” and enjoy great music. Realistically, If Pearl Jam’s albums never sold well, do you think they would still be together after two decades?"

    Ha!!!

    That is awesome news!!! About time I say!!!
  • Wikipedia says...To date, the band has sold over 31.5 million records in the U.S, and an estimated 60 million worldwide.

    Michael Jackson's Thriller, 30 million records, just in the US, most of them vinyl and cassette. The number's anywhere from 45 to 65 million copies worldwide.

    AC/DC's Back in Black, 50 million.

    Ahhh...publishing royalties for you and your estate. Wealth management...the life of a rock star.

    all future hard copies of the CD are going to have the title changed by Epic records to Ten Million

    Scary that Creed has sold 11-1/2 million? I for one am not factored into that number.

    That's a good point. I've bought 1 cassette, 2 CDs, and the redux LP.
