The 25 Biggest First-Week Album Sales in Music History

Pearl Jam, Vs.: 950,000

Release Date: 10/19/1993

After their massively successful debut, Ten, the pressure was on for the grunge band to repeat their success. They did exactly that, selling close to a million copies of Vs. in its first week of release, and setting what was at the time the record for first-week sales, a title the album held for five years. The album is certified seven-times platinum.
