Pearl Jam Gets Fifth No. 1 Album

Pearl Jam Gets Fifth No. 1 Album

Lightning Bolt, the new Pearl Jam album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.  It is the band's fifth No. 1 album.

Pearl Jam has the best chart debut for a rock album of the year.  But, it is also the worst debut for any Pearl Jam studio album.  Lightning Bolt sold 166,000 copies.  The band's second album, Vs, sold almost one million copies in it's first week of release.  But, that was before the internet.

Miley Cyrus has the No. 2 album in the country and Paul McCartney's New album debuted at 3.  Drake and The Avett Brothers round out the top 5.
