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.

The name of a famous Seattle band, but more importantly, think about it, Pearl Jam...

A clever slang name for semen, has the consistency of jam and a pearl color. Definitely cum.
Pal: "You fuck Sarah last night?"

Guy: "No doubt, busted my pearl jam in her face."

Pal: "haha you sick fuck, I envy you."

a. A rock group whose musical quality is far greater than their popularity

b. A rock group whose popularity would be greater if one of its members committed suicide a lá Kurt Cobain
That band is such a Pearl Jam: they're great, but nobody gives a shit.

The Greatest Rock Band ever. A band who stays true to themselves and does not care about trends or album sales. Many bandwagon fans will tell you that their only good album was Ten and that everything else sucks. But true fans will love No Code and not care if it did not have any hits.
Stupid Bandwagon Fan: "Man I wish Pearl Jam would make another Ten again."

True Fan: "Fuck you, Ten was great, but they have made so much more better albums than that album."
