Today, Billboard.com announced that Pearl Jam's 1991 debut album "Ten" surpassed the 10 million U.S. sales mark, making it the 22nd album to reach the threshold since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991.

In the week ending Feb. 17, the album sold nearly 4,000 copies, which brings its total sales to about 1,000 over 10 million.

"Ten" is the fourth album to hit 10 million U.S. sales since the start of 2012.
