Who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame more: Journey or Pearl Jam?
Pearl Jam has not only led in the grunge movement, but their debut album "Ten" (1991) sold 13 million in the U.S.—making it certified diamond! But with 10 studio albums and eight live albums, and a crap ton of singles and bootlegs—Pearl Jam has sold 60 million records in the past 20-plus years!
Journey has Pearl Jam beat with number of records sold worldwide and with longevity. Journey released their debut album in 1973. Since then, the band has had numerous platinum albums, but "Escape" (1981) is their best-selling album and is certified diamond. Makes sense—their music has inspired generation after generation!
Here's one of Pearl Jam's first hits and one of their more controversial songs about a young boy who commits suicide. The music video garnered significant play on MTV.
