|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?
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
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?"
|I don't like Pearl Jam either, and I agree with most of what you say here. Plus, this band name sounds like a 70s/80s fusion band, which is like the complete opposite of grunge. Buying Ten is one of the errors I've done in my life, just a little less worse than buying a 30 Seconds to Mars album. |
|So why don't you like pearl jam ??|
|Good to know, got me in the mood for Vitalogy though. It's interesting though because people will say similar things about when Henry Rollins "ruined" Black Flag. Everyone has their own opinion though and I'm glad you came up with a deep explanation instead of just saying "they suk" or "there rip offs".|
|never got into them|
|@BMDrummer: That's ironic, but I hope you enjoy it. I may not like Pearl Jam, but I can still understand why people like them, I even once did as the list above says. Plus Pearl Jam aren't rip offs anyway.|
|Aw, I thought it had everything to do with the Vedder knockoffs =(|
|Pearl Jam rules agreed|
|I half agree, I'm not huge on post 2000 pearl jam, but I like the 1990s stuff|
|"several of them, every single day" |
I usually only do 1 a day. This is the second time (the first being the first day ever before I knew making a ton of lists was annoying) I've made more than 1 in a day since I first started at the beginning in February and I only made it because I wanted to clear up the many people who were wondering why I don't like Pearl Jam.
You do bring up a good point though, I might write a review for the album that was released today: Foster the People's Supermodel.
|i really only like Ten by PJ, then a few of their singles after that|
|Well, at least we know.|
|jeremy spoke in claaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssss today|
