Pearl Jam's landmark debut Ten can now change its name to ten-million.  According to Billboard.com, the grunge classic is now the newest member of the ten-million-sellers club.  It's the 22nd record to pass the mark since Nielsen Soundscan began tracking sales in 1991, the same year Ten was released. 

Last week, the album sold another four-thousand copies, which brings it's grand total to about one-thousand copies over ten-million, and counting. 

But Ten still has a long way to go before it catches up with the best-selling SoundScan era release.  Metallica's self-titled smash, also released in 1991, tops the list with sales of more than 15-million.
