An impossibly high standard of genuineness and humility required to gain acceptance or impress.

Used most frequently when describing bands in the Post-Nirvana-Pre-Korn musical era.
1. It's nice that Steve recycles, but he's no Pearl Jam.

2. That guy makes faces like Eddie Vedder, but Stone Temple Pilots are no Pearl Jam.

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."

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.
Person 1:Dude I went to a Pearl Jam concert yesterday

Pearl Jam are a fine example of an awesome band.

These 'awesome bands' are very endangered these days, especially since John Lennon died and Ke$ha started raping the charts.
Now, despite the Y2K bug and Justin Bieber, Pearl Jam are one of the best creations of the 90's as they eclectically combine grunge with heavy rock with soft accoustic guitars with the coolest voice possible.

The best of the best songs are:
Even Flow
Black
Yellow Ledbetter
Alive
Just Breathe

Pearl Jam conquer about 90% of my iPod and have about 40 tribute bands, which is always good!
I hate Pearl Jam, but then again I'm an obese anti-christ homo who digs Nickelback.
How many people did I offend there...?
