“Brother” adds Fourth #1 to PJ Hit Family

by Kathy Davis on March 19, 2009

Everyone wants to hear new Pearl Jam – even if it’s old!  We reported last week that “Brother” was climbing the Modern Rock Charts, and now Billboard.biz reports that thanks to heavy radio airplay, the track  has sprinted its way to the Number One position!    If “Brother”s chart performance is any indication, it will be very interesting to see just how successful Ten 2.0 will be!

  • Pearl Jam earns its fourth No. 1 on the Modern Rock chart as “Brother” rises from No. 4 to No. 1. With last week’s leader, Incubus “Love Hurts,” ranking at No. 2, Epic claims back-to-back No 1′s and the top two spots for the first time in the chart’s 20-year history . . . “Brother,” one of six unreleased tracks from the March 24 reissue of Pearl Jam’s debut album, “Ten,” follows the band’s previous No. 1′s “Daughter” (1993), “Who You Are” (1996) and “World Wide Suicide” (2006).
