Pearl Jam - Vs.
'Vs.' is the second studio album by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam, released in October 1993 through Epic Records. After a relentless touring schedule in support of its debut album, 'Ten,' released in 1991, the band headed into the studio in early 1993 facing the challenge of following up the commercial success of its debut.
The resulting album, 'Vs.,' featured a rawer and more aggressive sound compared with the band's previous release. Pearl Jam decided to scale back its commercial efforts for 'Vs.,' including declining to produce music videos for any of the album’s singles. Upon its release, 'Vs.' set the record for most copies sold in a week, a record that has since been broken.
'Vs.' occupied the number one spot on the Billboard 200 for five weeks, the longest duration for a Pearl Jam album. The album has been certified seven times platinum by the RIAA in the United States.
