probably old, but wow!


Pearl Jam
They go on and on about the environment, abortion crap, and gun control, but back in 1994 PJ canceled their summer tour in an attempt to save the concertgoing public from Ticketmaster´s price-gouging. After going all the way to the justice department to plead their case, the flannel lads totally stuck it to Ticketmaster by losing their case a year later. Ticketmaster was pretty much unaffected.

    Typical crap by Maxim. I'll take Playboy over them as a matter of fact. Also FHM is the better of the 2.

    Those guys are so ignorant and pretentious. Somehow i can't see Eddie caring about this. They are so self assured in their dense observations and false opinions that it makes me laugh!

    Who buys this shit?!

    I do!























    To wipe my arse on though, what a crock of shit that is.

    Wtf? Slammed for doing good work and being activists? What the hell is this world coming to?

    Believe it or not, some people don't look to celebrities to preach to them. So, those who don't look for whores (Madonna - she wrote the book on being a whore) to preach to them, sometimes get annoyed when they are preached to.

    Sure, there are better things to write about in a magazine (that people on here obviously read in order to post about, or else they are googling Pearl Jam which is kinda sad), but I don't understand the shock on here. I don't believe that Sean Penn or Susan Sarandon have made a big difference in the world. No more than a nice old lady at a church down the street.

    When life gives you lemons, throw them at somebody.

    Don't you think PJ deserve praise for doing good, as well as the old lady at the church down the street?

    Maxim obviously doesn't know it's Pearl Jam. there's a link on the Celebrity Do-Gooders thing in the lower right hand corner that leads to the '30 worst albums of all time.'

    "26. PEARL JAM - Vitalogy
    As near as we can figure, the chorus of “Better Man” goes something like this: “She lotta sen shein luh widdim / Kin faddah bedda man / She dreesin cullus she dreesin ray / Kin faddah bedda mayeeeee-an.” Completely unintelligible lyrics, even by Vedder standards? Must mean we’re not worthy. Wait a minute: On further inspection, the song turns out to be a crock of shit! No wonder Vedder refuses to talk to anybody. And that’s the best tune on the album! Even real fans can’t listen to songs like “Hey Foxymophandlemama, That’s Me” without cringing.
    If you own it: I said no foam on that latte, zit-face."

    I am MOST USUALLY NOT one to jump on the "they dissed pearl jam so they are a bunch of assholes" bandwagon (like ever....) BUT!....

    I wouldn't worry about what the writers of a magazine which specialises in being material for helping people to masturbate thinks.
