Pearl Jam has notched its fifth Number One record on the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday (October 23rd), as Lightning Bolt sold 166,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at the top of the survey. The band’s 10th studio effort follows 2009′s Backspacer, which moved 189,000 copies to also land in the top spot. The group’s previous chart-toppers were 1996′s No Code, 1994′s Vitalogy and 1993′s Vs.

Although the first-week sales for Lightning Bolt are the lowest for any of the band’s studio releases, it’s the largest debut week for any rock album in 2013.

The band has also reached Number Two four times, with Ten in 1992, Yield in 1998, Binaural in 2000 and a self-titled effort in 2006.

All 10 of Pearl Jam’s studio albums have reached the Billboard chart’s Top 10.
