Definitely wouldn't hurt.

Black
Alive
Baba
Yellow

or

Betterman
Alive
Black
Indifference

Switch the 2nd B song to RITFW for the BARY/BARI combination of songs. There's more combinations, but the end of the shows have gotten pretty predictable.

If we could get to the point where we only post in acronyms we've reached PJ singularity.

BABI or GTFO

Enough with the Bruce Springsteen comparisons. He doesn't hold a candle to Eddie....he wouldn't last 30 minutes fronting Pearl Jam. Not even a question. He isn't a hard rock singer and that is why his shitty voice is somewhat preserved. Overrated. If you want to compare someone in Vedder's class then maybe Cornell but even he wouldn't be able to sing PJ songs after three shows and not get booed off stage. Unfortunately, there is no singer that has taken the torch and moved rock music forward and not sold out by conforming to shitty trends. Until someone with the balls and courage to pave their own path, rock music will remain on life support and PJ will have to continue to carry it forward.

Is this what you see when you see pearl jam? Because what frustrates me is that they seem to have conformed to shitty trends. Their tone is over-produced. They might have put one guitar solo longer than 16 measures on an album since riot act. They make punk songs that sound like disney channel pop. The lyrics are trite. They sell $35 sticker sets. They play corporate shows. And now they co-invest alongside ticketmaster.

It's just tiring to even try with a fan base, for real. It isn't just PJ's. But, hey, there's critic's and experts everywhere.

This is great -- the closest RM has ever unironically come to a Donald Trump tweet.

In my defense, my back has been driving me crazy and I tried to delete my outburst. I'm not too proud to admit that I'm full of shit sometimes. :peace: It's depressing hearing Ed struggle on some of these shows, though. Maybe I'll buy a coloring book to help me process these feelings? :lol:
