The thud, the angst, the roar – In 1991 Pearl Jam‘s Ten swept across the country, cementing the notion of Seattle grunge as one of rock’s most powerful sounds. Almost two decades later, it’s still a fave for those who like it loud (which is plenty – 12 million people have bought it so far). So no wonder our pals at RockBand are making a big deal of the arrival of Ten‘s tracks. Now all the rumpus room rockers can wail their way through everything from “Jeremy” to “Even Flow.”
We’re celebrating, too. You can hear a handful of various remixes and obscurities that are found on the deluxe version of the Ten reissue here on the site. We’re streaming them through Tuesday, April 31. Throughout the week, VH1 Classic is airing a video profile entitled “Pearl Jam Ten Revisited” that features an uncensored version of the “Jeremy” video.
The real hardcore Rock Band zealots can challenge Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron in a Game With Fame battle this Friday, March 27.
