Back Page MagazineCategories:Music


The Seattle grunge band’s debut, Ten featured some of PJ’s most commercially successful singles, including Even Flow, Jeremy, and Alive. To celebrate the occasion, the band released its cover of Mother Love Bone‘s Crown of Thorns. The track is the first song released from the upcoming soundtrack album to Cameron Crowe’s band documentary Pearl Jam Twenty, which will be released on September 10th.

Of course, Mother Love Bone featured Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament, before they would form PJ with vocalist Eddie Vedder. After original MLB frong man Andrew Wood died of an overdose, the band started anew as Pearl Jam, setting into motion one of the most successful of all of the “grunge” bands of the 1990s.
