Pearl Jam: 15 Interesting Facts About The Band!


Pearl Jam released 72 live albums between 2000-2001

Following the release of the band’s sixth studio record Binaural, Pearl Jam recorded — and later released — every concert they played in support of the record. The total ended up being 72. So many of the records hit the charts that Pearl Jam set a record for having the most records debut on the Billboard 200 chart at the same time.

The band has sold nearly 32million records in the United States and an estimated 60million worldwide. Pearl Jam has outlasted and outsold many of its contemporaries from the alternative rock breakthrough of the early 1990s, and is considered one of the most influential bands of that decade. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of All Music referred to Pearl Jam as “the most popular American rock & roll band of the ’90s”.
