Pearl Jam’s Top 20 Moments

6. STONED IN SINGLES

In addition to being the primary featured artists on the soundtrack, director Cameron Crowe cast Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard in the film as members of Citizen Dick, a band fronted by Matt Dillon’s egocentric character. They have multiple speaking parts in the film, but our favorite is this scene of the dudes stoned out of their gourd watching nature programming. (Sorry that this clip is in a foreign language!)

7. THE INFAMOUS SINGLES RELEASE PARTY

Pearl Jam was a band that was never afraid to bite the hand that feeds them, and this clip from PJ20 above illustrates one of the first moments that the general public realized they had teeth. PJ was booked to play a special MTV concert to promote the release of Singles, which took place during a time when the band was feeling very fatigued. The result? Lead singer Eddie Vedder got SUPER drunk, spouted a bunch of profanities, and the show went down in history because of it.
