Pearl Jam tops Billboard 200 with "Lightning Bolt"

"Black," "Jeremy," "Animal," and "Even Flow." These were just a few of the songs that the legendary grunge band, Pearl Jam, popularized. The band, led by iconic frontman Eddie Vedder, has recently released its 10th studio album entitled "Lightning Bolt" last week.

The album was well-received by die-hard Pearl Jam fans, catapulting the album to the number one spot at the Billboard 200 chart with over 166,000 copies sold in its first week. Pearl Jam isn't a stranger to the Billboard 200, which ranks the top 200 highest selling albums in the U.S.

The band's previous album, "Backspacer," also topped the Billboard 200 in 2009, and so is "Code" in 1996, "Vitalogy" in 1994, and "Vs." in 1994. The Seattle-based band also scored four number two-peaking albums in the past.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
