POP MUSIC CHARTS

Ugly Sittin' Pretty

April 25, 1993

Ugly Kid Joe's first full album, "America's Least Wanted," which followed its smash hit EP, initially seemed like it wouldn't have any legs and would die after a month or so--particularly since it's not the Seattle sound. But the album, which came out last September, has been a steady seller ever since, lately boosted by the national hit single "Cat's in the Cradle." The album is No. 4 on the Times' Southern California hard-rock chart, which continues to be dominated by Pearl Jam's "Ten," with Stone Temple Pilots' debut album "Core" not far behind and Alice in Chains' "Dirt" in third.
