Pearl Jam Debuts at #1

Those with their ears to the ground knew this was coming, but it's official.  Tongue-wagging and twerking will only carry you so far.  Last night, Pearl Jam unseated Miley Cyrus at the top of the album charts, coming in with sales of 169,687, more than double that of the former Disney star.

You might remember last month when Ed had this to say about the kind of music Miley Cyrus puts out.
These pop songs almost feel like tabloid journalism, in a way. It's crap that people seem to like. And I don't know if it has meaning. I don't know if one of the pop songs of the summer has any fiber in it. People are consuming it, and is it healthy? I don't know. Maybe it's some kind of way of taking themselves away from their problems. Maybe there's some healthy property or some restorative property that I'm not receiving. It seems like it has a really high fructose content.
