18. PEARL JAM FINALLY TELLS THEIR STORY

Pearl Jam has always been the kind of band that lets their music do the talking. They’re generally loathe to do interviews about their material, but the band’s 2006 appearance on VH1 Storytellers is a notable exception. (We wish we still had the rights to air this program, but we’re guessing you can hunt it down somewhere online if you REALLY want to watch it [which you should]).

19. PEARL JAM TWENTY

Pearl Jam’s incredible legacy is lovingly documented by director Cameron Crowe in this 2011 film, which will air on VH1 Classic tomorrow night, Saturday October 12, at 10PM/9C. It’s a must-see for any Pearl Jam fan, and one of the better rockumentaries of the last decade in general.

20. THE HEAVENS OPEN UP AT WRIGLEY FIELD

It all comes full circle in this clip from the band’s instantly epic concert at Wrigley Field on July 19, 2013. Fans packed the baseball stadium and were forced to endure a multi-hour rain delay, which Pearl Jam thanked them for by putting on one of the most amazing live shows in their storied career. This clip above is of an emotional Eddie Vedder singing “Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns,” a Mother Love Bone track.
