That's okay, I've grown pretty accustomed to disregarding the actual meanings of Pearl Jam songs over the years.

Have they at least gotten some kind of endorsement deal out of this?

It's not as great as WWS.

Too true, sadly. Although great in this instance is very medi-fucking-ocre.

This is one of the highlights of the album, that's only flaw is that it sounds like its trying too hard.

I love the tamborine thing in the guitar interludes. Its really catchy. I just wish the ending had a more extended solo...its not on youtube anymore it seems but Mike McCready shredding while looking up at the sky at the Global Citizen Festival was so awesome.

Its a great live song, and I hope it remains a staple.

Man I just got to the end, and there isnt EVEN an ending solo. There should be. If they had a crazy shredding solo for a minute at the end of the song, it would be improved greatly. Its still great, but that is a minor mark against it, but it is awesome live.

this really does come into its own as a live song more than almost any pearl jam song in recent and not so recent memory.

And yes, the lack of outro solo is appalling.

I also love the spacey accents mike throws in periodically throughout the song

They don't do long solos anymore because Mike might need to go urgently poop.

Where do you guys like this one in a live set?

I found the LB tour so repetitive how it was always like 4th or 5th. Im not sure that's the best place for it but it also kind of works? IDK. I saw them put it in the encores in 2016 at least at MSG and I thought it worked there.

Where do you think it fits?

It'd honestly be a decent opener despite being new though I guess I should hate that as much as 4th or 5th. IDK!

LB is my favorite song from the album. And it’s better live than on the recording.
