GRAMMY AWARD winning Pearl Jam is an American rock band formed in
Seattle, Washington, in 1990.
Pearl Jam outsold many of their contemporaries from the early 1990s and
are considered one of the most influential bands of the decade, being dubbed as
"the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s".
Pearl Jam was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 in its
first year of eligibility. They were ranked eighth in a readers' poll by Rolling
Stone magazine in its "Top Ten Live Acts of All Time" issue. Throughout its
career, the band has also promoted wider social and political issues, from
pro-abortion rights sentiments to opposition to George W. Bush's presidency.

Compared with the other grunge bands of the early 1990s, Pearl Jam's
style is noticeably less heavy and harkens back to the classic rock music of the
1970s. Pearl Jam has cited many punk rock and classic rock bands as
influences, including The Who,
Led Zeppelin, Neil Young,
Kiss and the Ramones. Pearl
Jam's success has been attributed to its sound, which fuses "the riff-heavy
stadium rock of the '70s with the grit and anger of '80s post-punk, without ever
neglecting hooks and choruses."
Pearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s.

After vocalist Andrew Wood overdosed on heroin in 1990, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament assembled a new band, bringing in Mike McCready on lead guitar and recording a demo with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron on drums. Thanks to future Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons, the demo found its way to a 25-year-old San Diego surfer named
Eddie Vedder, who overdubbed vocals and original lyrics and was subsequently invited to join the band (then christened Mookie Blaylock after the NBA player). Dave Krusen was
hired as the full-time drummer shortly thereafter, completing the original lineup.
Renaming themselves Pearl Jam, the band recorded their debut album, "Ten," in the beginning of 1991, although it wasn't released until August; in the meantime, the majority of the band appeared on the Andrew Wood tribute project
Temple of the Dog. Krusen left the band shortly after the release of "Ten"; he was replaced by Dave Abbruzzese.
Pearl Jam's audience continued to grow during 1992, thanks to a series of radio and MTV hits, as well as successful appearances on the second Lollapalooza tour and the Singles soundtrack (Stone Gossard also embarked on a side project called Brad, which released the album "Shame" in early 1993).
"Vitalogy," the band's third album, appeared at the end of 1994. For the first two weeks, the album was only available as a limited vinyl release, but the record charted in the Top 60. Once "Vitalogy" was available on CD and cassette, the album shot to the top of the charts and quickly went multi-platinum.
In early 1995, the band recorded an album with
Meanwhile, Vedder toured with his wife Beth's experimental band Hovercraft in the spring of 1994 as Stone Gossard founded an independent record company; Mad Season, Mike McCready's side project with Layne Staley of
Alice in Chains, released their first album,
"Above," in the spring of 1995. Pearl Jam released a single culled from the sessions, titled "Merkinball" and featuring the songs "I Got Id" and "Long Road," in the fall of 1995.
In late summer of 1996, Pearl Jam released their fourth album, No Code.
