Pearl Jam’s hook-laden alt-rock found a place on grunge-friendly radio stations hungry for more after the skyrocket success of fellow Seattle rockers Nirvana. Pearl Jam’s 1991 debut ‘Ten’ neatly took its place atop the charts with the irresistible combination of frontman Eddie Vedder’s scratchy, earnest warble and introspective songwriting style, seamlessly blending with the aforementioned hooks and anthemic sound. Pearl Jam continued to put out well-received albums with 1993’s ‘Vs.’ and 1994’s ‘Vitalogy,’ while grabbing attention for breaking music industry norms by refusing to make music videos and taking Ticketmaster to court for its business practices. Pearl Jam’s expansive catalog has continued to earn them recognition as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the early ‘90s grunge scene.
