The Probably Not Awaited And Boring As Hell Explanation

I'm a huge grunge fan, but as most people on here know, I really don't rlike Pearl Jam. I might ras well explain why. It's boring, it's dry, but maybe rit will gives you guys some insight?
1Pearl Jam

OKAY GUYS TIME FOR ME TO EXPLAIN IN DEPTH WHY I'M SO AGAINST PEARL JAM... The reason I don't like Pearl Jam has nothing to do with those shitty post-grunge bands. If anything is has way more to do with other grunge bands. So Nirvana was my first grunge band ever (back when I was 14) so I went looking for others to get into. Naturally Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots were soon added to collection, I liked all three, but Nirvana was still my favorite. Now out of the 3 Pearl Jam was my least favorite anyway. Even back then I had a gripe with the fact that he never sings clearly and can't enunciate shit.

Eventually (from ages 15-16) I added Alice in Chains, then Hole, then Soundgarden, then L7, and then Mother Love Bone. I was blown away by them all, but none more than Soundgarden. I realized something, each grunge band had this interesting unique sound that made them awesome while also somehow fitting into 1 sub-genre. With this said the power of vocalists like Chris Cornell, Layne Staley, and heck even Courtney Love or the coolness of vocalists like Andrew Wood, Kurt Cobain, and Scott Weiland, and the 3 singers of L7's were a huge part of the appeal.

With all of these new grunge bands added I still found time for Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots since I found them to be just as/almost as good. Then I realized, I wasn't listening to Pearl Jam much anymore (At this time I had both Ten and Vs.) so I tried Vitalogy to re-spark my interest. That was the first time I felt that Vedder's vocals sucked. I felt it was maybe just one of the worse albums and I let it go. I didn't really love it upon re-listens either. Months later, I tried Temple of the Dog. Two grunge frontmen together? This should be awesome. IT WAS. Except hearing Vedder sing with Cornell, made Vedder sound so bad by comparison. If anything Vedder made what should have been a 5/5, a 4.9/5. So I re-listened to Pearl Jam's first 3 albums again just to see how I felt about them and I realized I just didn't like them anymore. It's rare that I personally grow out of a band.

So, while still 16, Id all of the Pearl Jam from my iTunes, I didn't even really build up nostalgia for it. Eventually as I hear Pearl Jam songs afterwards, from friends or on the radio, his vocals almost just piss me off. I'm 18 now and I don't really regret it. I await displeased comments, but at least I can refer to this list when someone asks on here "Why don't you like Pearl Jam?"
