WEB : The Best Clip Ever On YouTube - Rock Greatest Moment



Date : 11/09/91
Place :Tower Records: Rockville, MD
Attendance : 50
Setlist : Wash, Black, Alive, Suggestion, Porch (Acoustic)
Notes : Small, in-store promo for their first album, Ten, with Pearl Jam in a festive, friendly mood.


Eddie Vedder smiling, cracking jokes, signing autograph AND rocking out? That's very rare.

Goosebumps. Close to tears.
I get very nostalgic watching the clip above. It makes me feel like a teenage boy again. To capture a moment of rock history when a great band is about to hit it's peak is a one of a kind moment. Watching the clip, you can see that the band poised for stardom: talented, confident, good-looking, and most of all, they rocked the crowd.

In the clip, you could hear the power of Eddie's voice; at one point he didn't even need the mic to sing. You could also see the playful side of the band as they were laughing and joking around while they were rockin' the crowd. At one point, you could also hear Pearl Jam playing the riff of Nirvana's 'Smell Like Teen Spirit'. This clip is classic, man.. Prove that Pearl Jam is definitely the best band in the world. Now I know why I still regularly listen to 90's music. It's the best! How I wish I could go back in time..

Now, if you're a Pearl Jam fan, do me a favour; press play, pause the clip, wait until the clip finish downloading, press play again... and enjoy.

    Aku antara yang terlewat mendapat tempias seattle sound ni..
    Hujung2 90 an je baru aku betul2 ber jinak2 dengan music dorang ni. Pasal dulu aku ingatkan Nirvana = Seattle.
    Tapi bila aku dah pandai kaji music, dah pandai dengar, Seattle ni memang bukan setakat Nirvana. Tapi my most feveret is still Alice In Chains. Kena lak Love Hate Love tu..memang berhantu..

    Nak tengok, tapi kena balik rumah dulu. Kat ofis aku Youtube dah kena ban, kalau klik jugak, diorang redirect ke website rasmi company aku :P

    How I wish I could go back in time..

    Like 1982? Edd, kau cakap gaya2 Uncle Rico, aku dapat bayangkan.

    zack..
    Ada cara sebenarnya ko nak bypass company ko punya firewall. Tapi panjang ceritanya.

    Uncle Rico? hahaha.. aku tahu hanya kau akan perasan that line.

    damn aku trasa cam sungguh muda laa pulak biler baca entry nie *hang head in shame* rock evolution aku started agak lambat, around 1st quarter of 2004 rasernyer. before that, I was basically infested and tainted by pop trash. kalau laa bukan sebab dengar lagu Metallica's The Unforgiven, maybe aku xkan minat rock :D (well excluded LP laa)

    never been a Pearl Jam fan before but suddenly lps bacer entry nie I have the sudden urge ndak dengar Pearl Jam again and again and again and again... err, any recommendation? I always thought the acoustic version of Black is pretty awesome. dan aku ader mp3 diorg covered Smells Like Teen Spirit. sgt bess :D

    recommendation? Hmm.. where do I start.

    I suggest u start with Ten and move up to VS and Vitalogy. Ten is a must-listen from start to finish. One of the best album ever. Then try and listen to VS. The first track from that album, 'Go' will blow you away! After that u can move up to Vitalogy. Tracks like 'Spin The Black Circle', 'Betterman' and 'Corduroy' will definitely convert u into a PJ fan. Just remember to listen to it full blast or it won't have the same effect.

    Acoustic version of Black yg paling best adalah dr video clip yg aku letak tu. The MTV unplugged version is good too of course.

    Check this out. Look at how passionate Eddie Vedder sings every word of 'Alive'.-->

    And here's the unofficial video for 'Go'--->

    Enjoy.
