It seems like on every album there is a really good song or few songs that are underrated or don't get enough love. What would you say is the most underrated song from each album?

Here's mine:

Ten - Deep
Vs. - Rats
Vitalogy - Satan's Bed
No Code - Mankind
Yield - In Hiding (I wish it was played more in concert as oppose to Wishlist)
Binaural - Thin Air (This whole album is underrated and should be played more in concert)
Riot Act - Ghost (see Binaural)
Pearl Jam - Gone
Backspacer - The End

    Interesting thread OP. curious to see others responses. Here's mine...

    Ten - Deep
    It was between this and Garden. I choose Deep.

    VS - WMA
    Such a cool vibe in this song.

    Vitalogy - Tremor Christ
    Way underrated IMO. Needs more live treatment.

    No Code - Who You Are
    Could've chose a few off here including Habit or Around the Bend. I just think this one grays overlooked the most.

    Yield - Brain Of J
    One of my all time favorites. Another one I wish got more live treatment.

    Binaural - Grievance
    Such a heavy song in so many ways. One of the most underrated in their entire catalog IMO. As someone else mentioned this entire album is underrated.

    Riot Act - Arc
    I can't even explain why I love this one so much. It's like a religion to me. Meditation or something.

    Pearl Jam - Comatose
    People don't seem to love this song like I do. This was a standout for me my very first spin of S/T and still is.

    Backspacer - The End
    Beautiful song that doesn't seem to get a lotta love. Classic PJ ending of a record.

    I was almost about to say Ghost for Riot Act too, because that's one of my all-time favorite songs. But then I'm like, "dude nobody EVER talks about Cropduster!"

    Garden- hard choice b/c Ten is just classic after classic

    Glorified G-cool lead stuff, cool rhythm guitar, cool tune...think it gets a lot of undue hate from Ed fanboys

    Tremor Christ-needs more live love

    Who You Are- best song on No Code

    No Way-drives home why I love Stone Gossard's style so damn much

    Sleight of Hand-wish PJ would explore this space, may be the most interesting song in the catalog

    Cropduster-combines the the anthemic mid tempo style that PJ excels at with MC's off kilter drumming better than any other tune

    Army Reserve-I think this is a standout on an album with quite a few middle of the road tracks

    Johnny Guitar-interesting twist on their more punk inspired stuff

    I've always considered Cropduster a defining Pearl Jam song....like Black/RVM/I got Shit/Corduroy (IMHO)

  • Ten = Garden. By the time that chorus kicks in, I am on that train...
    Vs = Blood. Sure, us diehards get it, but if I'm ever introducing someone to Vs and dont want them to think its just the Elderly Woman Album, I go to Blood.
    Vitalogy = Whipping. Angry, fast, memorable, oft forgot.
    No Code = I'm Open. Life changer
    Yield = No Way. When this happened at PJ20, I flipped some serious shii.
    Riot Act = You Are. How people didn't just dig this song the whole world over baffles me.
    Lost Dogs = Alone. Nuff' said.
    Avacado = Gone. Quite resonant.
    Backspacer = Speed of Sound. Why not so much love? No idea, from the demo to the studio this track is magic.
  • Ten - Garden
    Vs - Blood
    Vitalogy - Satan's Bed
    No Code - Off He Goes (quickly becoming my favorite song in the whole catalog, for now).
    Yield - In Hiding
    Binaural - Nothing As It Seems (just not played live enough)
    Riot Act - Cropduster
    Avocado - Come Back (again, not played live enough)
    Backspacer - Just Breathe (I say this one because of the "hate" it seems to get around here. This really is a beautiful song)
