Pearl Jam is my favorite band on this planet.
I’ve had this blog for… oh, about 7 months now and I don’t think I’ve mentioned, let alone featured Pearl Jam once. Part of me waited on showcasing anything from them because I wanted it to be a special occasion (yes, I’m a dork) and the other part of me knew that posting anything from Pearl Jam is a very slippery slope. Why is it a slippery slope you wonder? Because I can’t just stop with one Pearl Jam song or one video. This blog could instantly turn into non-stop PearlJamness at any moment. I have to fight against myself to not let this happen.
So that was my brief introduction to Pearl Jam and myself.
Can you believe this album was first released 21 years ago? This album has transcended history. It’s an iconic piece and it was one of the world’s first introductions to “Grunge Music”. I was only 4-years-old when it was first released so I cannot claim to really remember it, nor did I become a Pearl Jam fan till much later in life, but I appreciate it all the same. This band can do absolutely no wrong in my book, and watching this performance from 1992 shows why. They may have gotten older (haven’t we all?) but they still ROCK THE FUCK OUT like nooooo other!
