Poll: What is Pearl Jam’s best album?
Of all the Seattle rock bands that hit the big time in the early 1990s, Pearl Jam has arguably the largest discography. But which of their 11 studio albums is the best? That’s what we want to hear from you in this week’s Loudwire Nights Album of the Week poll!
You will have until Friday at 12 N ET to vote. We will then play the three songs from the album with the most votes during the Loudwire Nights Album of the Week block to start the show the following Monday!
Pearl Jam’s very first album Ten was released in August 1991, just months before the spotlight was on Seattle. Once Nirvana It doesn’t matter began to make waves in early 1992, radio stations and MTV began to incorporate more Pacific Northwest bands into their regular rotation, and Pearl Jam was truly one of the bands to benefit from this change. . It took about a year to Ten to make its way into the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, then it peaked at No. 2.
Due to the massive success of Ten and the following they amassed on tour to support him, Pearl Jam’s second effort was highly anticipated. vs. was released in October 1993 and debuted at No. 1 on the album charts, but it also set a record for the most copies of an album sold in the first week of its release when it sold over 950,000 units in the first five days.
The two successors of vs., 1994 Vitology and 1996 no codes also peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and every record they’ve released since has landed in the Top 10. As they prepare to go on tour in support of their latest album, 2020 gigatonne, they still sell out stadiums and arenas, and still have a cult following. They truly are one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet, and they’ve stood the test of time after all these years.
