Artist of the Day: Pearl Jam

What is a better way to celebrate the tenth studio album release of one of rock music's most iconic act's then with a retrospective on the group's illustrious 20+ year career? Pearl Jam bursted into the rock scene and brought forth grunge to the national spotlight. With their legendary debut album, Ten, and its plethora of hit singles ("Even Flow," "Alive," "Jeremy," and "Black"), the band rooted themselves deep into music legacy almost immediately. After nine more studio albums, ranging from the post-grunge Vs., to the more mature, adult alt-rock of Yield, to the almost post-punk aspects of Backspacer, Pearl Jam has kept their devoted fan base pleased for the entire length of their career.

Led by iconic frontman Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has paved the way for numerous bands, while still remaining exciting and relevant. The band shows no signs of slowing down either, with a two-month, national tour ongoing right now.

Even if you aren't a fan of grunge or early 90's rock music, Pearl Jam will have something to please you with. Littered throughout their discography are lush ballads, intense punk romps, and classic-rock infused jams. The band is as diverse as anyone could hope for, and has truly proved themselves to be living legends.

Here's to another ten years Pearl Jam.
