Worst Pearl Jam Song

Because they're not perfect...
Glorified G from Vs. is definitely one of them... if not the worst. I just don't like that whole 'glorified version of a pellet gun' chorus thing in the background, it drives me nuts. Your results may vary, but I'm sure there's some songs you don't like.
Ooh, yeah! All right!
Were [Pearl] jammin
I wanna [Pearl] jam it wid you.
Were [Pearl] jammin, [Pearl] jammin
And I hope you like [Pearl] jammin too.

    I think Mike's intro licks and Stone's rhythm guitar are more than enough to make Glorified G not among the worst.

    Stupid mop, I'm open, Bee girl, Sweet Lew, Mankind, Education, U. Don't gimme no lip I'd say these are the ones I really don't like much.

    Now when you think about it. Of all the albums, all the B-sides, all the Soundtracks, etc., probably well over 100 songs, if I can only come up with those 8 songs, that is a statement as to how great PJ is for me.

    Olympic Platinum. Hands down. I still enjoy it though for the whole "synchronized swimming" and "I'll be like that girl, who trained all her life..." lines.

    yeah, this is really the only one I skip. I saw them play it live at my first show and it still didn't grow on me.

    nothing as it seems

    On a side note, There are a bunch of songs on the riot act album that i don't like. Just can't think of them because I haven't listened to the album in a long time.

    the only thing I can agree with here is Evacuation, everything else mentioned I like too much.
    I'm not fond of Betterman.

    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

    I love come back too but for some reason, I can not get into nothing as it seems (I've definately tried too).

    if i had to pick, i would say Sweet Lew by a long fucking shot.

    I don't really like to say that I dislike any pearl Jam song but,.....


    okay. I really don't like this song.


    though, with that being said, it was cool in philly. go figure.
    Peace, Love.

    Wishlist annoys the hell outta me, always has!
    Sweet Lew is rubbish, and I guess that's why it was left off albums.
    I'm Open is wanky.
    Push Me, Pull Me annoys.

    Probably more. I think because I love them, and the first 3 albums were groundbreaking, whenever they do something that i think lacks cred or just isn't as good as other stuff out there, it cuts deeper and annoys me more than say if The Strokes bring out something that isn't that good... know what I mean?!
