Perl Jam was actually my favorite band until I started listening to...
Not Pink Floyd, not The Beatles, Not the Stones, not Radiohead, and certainly not Metallica ( G-'n-R was a much better mainstream metal band), but...
I believe Dylan will be one of the few if not the only rock artist that will be remembered in distant future. As Pete Townshend once commented on Dylan's influence, "That's like asking how I was influenced by being born." There is simply no other rock artist with the depth, influence, and output of Dylan. "Love & Theft" is the best new album I've heard this year. What are the Beatles doing?

no arguements there
GNR are better than Metallica
Neil Young Rocks
Bob Dylan is amazing
Love and Theft is tied for best album of the year with Gov't Mule's new disc
but what do you mean by what the beatles are doing? a great band by your definition must be constantly making music and receieve ungodly amounts of airplay?
Bob Dylan hasn't had a "mandatory song" since the 60s, very rarely receives airplay except on folk stations and alternative country stations yet he's great and because Pearl Jam doesn't get "much" either they suck?
Let me rephrase the whole thing:
I think that, above all else, comparing Pearl Jam to Pink Floyd is not wise most of all because the two bands the songs of the two groups were very different, and they were followed by generally different crowds. My argument that Pearl Jam will not last like Pink Floyd is connected, but it is secondary.<hr></blockquote>
agree. completely different bands but to say pearl jam won't last is naive. they have already proven they have lasted.
[quote]YY Baltimore (97.9): 70s/80s/90s, some current. it's a real rock station. They do play Pearl Jam, but they don't play it too often anymore. "Mandatory Metallica" is a program they play around 10PM on weeknights. Supposedly it gets good ratings.
Some station in Philly: They also have a "Mandatory Metallica" program sometime at night. Similar to WIYY. I tune in to this station when I'm driving to and from NJ.
WWDC Washington (101.1): A pretty bland mix of modern rock. They play whatever's current, so obviously not a whole lot of Pearl Jam.
WHFS (99.1): A more alternative version of DC101.
WPRB (103.3): A station run in the basement of Holder Hall by Indie Rock fans who think Eddie Vedder is a dick head. (Just for the record, I'm not a part of this station)<hr></blockquote>
damn, I thought New York radio was bad.
the only station I consistently listen to here now is 90.7 WFUV... Fordham U's station which plays a pretty cool mix of blues, folk, alternative country, and tons of other genres.
So as you can see, I don't hear a lot of Pearl Jam, except when they release something new, and sorry man, but I think the recent stuff has been crap. I like the good, solid songs like Even Flow, but they're not on the radio but once in a blue moon.<hr></blockquote>
you don't here even flow? take it,I think that's once of the most UN-PearlJam songs and really doesn't rank up there in my favorites list but it is constantly played on any rock radio station that plays a 90s mix.
[quote]And to U2 fans... U2 has sucked since discoteque or however you spell that abomination.
I think you mean Pop which Discoteque is on. That is a great album, one of their best IMO. Did you ever listen to the whole album or just hear discoteque and say it sucks? All that you can't leave behind is a beautiful album and they have THE live show of the year.
Look Applenut, you love Pearl Jam, great, you're entitled, what's his name doesn't have to agree though so just drop it ok.<hr></blockquote>
uh **** offf. what's with the Bogie thinking he is above everyone and needs to tell people how to act?
the same could be said of him but as usual you only see against me.
Its embarrassing that the distinguished Mr. Young played with them at all . . .<hr></blockquote>
yea, I guess the Doors, and The Who also couldn't tell talent because they played with em too
