An American rock band formed in Seattle in 1990 which rose to become one of the best and most influential bands of modern times. Widely associated with grunge music, Pearl Jam also includes elements of classic rock, alternative rock, garage rock, post-grunge, and experimental rock. Easily recognizable by the bluesy guitar work of lead guitarist Mike McCready and the deep grungy voice of Eddie Vedder. Frontman, lead singer, and occasional guitarist Eddie Vedder is also an environmentalist and conservationist, which makes him badass.
Often hated by people such as modern rock and nu-metal fanboys, as well as a small group of grunge "fans" who claim that Pearl Jam sold out their roots, which, of course is not true... they simply adapted their music to the messages they want to spread. Many people say that Pearl Jam never made a good album after Ten, but of course these people have never heard any of their songs other than their radio hits. People can't seem to give any reasons why they dislike Pearl Jam without making themselves look like immature assholes, simply because it is impossible to dislike Pearl Jam if you sit down and listen to them.
Most well known for their songs Alive, Even Flow, Jeremy, Yellow Ledbetter, Betterman, Daughter, Just Breathe, and their cover song Last Kiss.
Creator of great unknown gems like Oceans, Tremor Christ, Garden, Last Exit, 1/2 Full, I Am Mine, Off He Goes, etc.
