Gem of the Week: Pearl Jam’s cover of “Let It Go”

25 Jun

During a live performance in Italy last week, Pearl Jam spontaneously covered part of the Disney track Let It Go from the movie Frozen.

Frontman Eddie Vedder’s rock twist to the popular children tune has been trending over online media and is definitely a gem to check out this week.

The song has been impossible to get away from if your around children. I know I’m tired of hearing it.

According to the article in People.com, the band went into the cover while they performed their song Daughter during their concert in Milan last Friday. The performance was a present for Vedder’s two young daughters.

As I have previously stated in my post from October about their album Lighting Bolt, I’ve been a Pearl Jam fan since they hit the grunge scene in the early 90s.

I think it’s cool that Vedder did this Disney cover for his kids.

Below is the short and sweet clip that will not disappoint fans shared from Nolatiles You Tube channel.

Legends of Rock: 90s Grunge Rockers Pearl Jam With New Album

23 Oct

Seattle rock legends Pearl Jam released a new album called Lighting Bolt, which is great news for grunge era fans like myself.

The album is their 10th studio album and was recently released on October 15.

The band has also started touring with the dates listed on the bands official website.

I listened through the tracks and I liked the song Mind Your Manners which has a faster thrash style beat in the vain of an old school punk song.

The mood becomes a little calmer with the song Sirens but my favorite so far is Let the Records Play, which has a rockin’ bluesy kick.

You can stream through the full album on iTunes .

Pearl Jam have been around for 23 years and are one of the key bands born out of the 90s grunge scene.

The bands line up has remained original except for the drummer:

Eddie Vedder – lead vocal and rhythm guitar

Stone Gossard – rhythm and lead guitar

Mike McCready – lead guitar

Jeff Ament – bass guitar

Matt Cameron – drums

My two all time favorite albums that I definitely exhausted playing are Vitalogy (1994) and Yield (1998).

Late Night with Jimmy Fallen is dedicating a week of love to Pearl Jam from October 21 to 25 following the release of the new album.

Pearl Jam is also known for supporting social and political issues and are environmental activists.

You can read more about what the band supports under their activism tab on the bands official site.
