    5 guys who just want to play music

    no bullshit at their shows, a stage, a few lights and the band playing their asses off. That's why I love this band, they do it the way it should be done!

    I was 15 when a little record named "Ten" came out. Changed my life. Every album and live show since has had an impact on my life. Especially "No Code." Still my favorite record of all time. So many more things I could say here but I don't wanna ramble.

    Thanks again for the chance.

    Pearl Jam saved my life this year,can't really say more about it,this is a very personal stuff,but my love for them can't be bigger now,thanks to them i am who i am now,i am who i was before.

    Apart from that i love them for not being so called "stars",for being a normal guys who just plays music for people,and after all that years they're still the same.

  • Pearl Jam was the first band I really got into as a kid and and they keep me feeling like a kid 20 years later !!!

    Thanks D !!
  • Thanks D for the opportunity! This band, like so many people before me said, is there for whatever I need. When I'm down, when I'm up, tough times and in good times. It's very hard to put it into words. I can't thank my friend enough for getting me hooked on this group. And I couldn't begin to thank this group for being a part of my life.

    Thanks again, D. and thanks to the greatest group on the planet! Also, thank you to all the fans out there that make the Jamily so very special.

    Hmm. I love Pearl Jam because they love what they do and it shows, on their albums and live, especially. There is truly nothing like a PJ concert because of the energy and passion of a band kicking out awesome jams. Plus, the raw emotion in the music is truly moving, unlike any other.

    Pearl Jam has helped me process some horrible things in my life. Child abuse etc. I am trying to collect more Pearl Jam shows since I don't have very much right now. Good luck to all! :geek:
    All my rivals will see what I have in store.

    To put it simply, they are just incredible. I mean Eddie's voice gives me the chills more than any other vocalist out there. Just amazing.

    Pearl Jam has been apart of me since I was 8 years old. It is held my hand through the years of being an impressionable teenager up to my relatively young adulthood.

  • I listen to Pearl Jam because I value good, well-written music and, for me, having grown up in the 90's, I identify the easiest with their music.

    Thanks for the chance!

    I didn't even like music in general before hearing Jeremy on the radio back in the day. My sister (who was than in college) told me she already had the CD and would give it to me when she came home for vacation. I couldn't wait that long and bought the cassette (obviously, it was the first album I ever bought). Here we are 20 years later, I'll be 30 next month and am buying Pearl Jam onesies for my baby boy.
    Still can't believe I met Mike Mccready at the Guggenheim and got a pic with him!!!!!

  • first thanks for the contest Dimitri and then love PJ because they are the extension of my soul

    the only band who always touched me deep in my heart last 20 years

    the only band that can play all different styles of rock music while still staying faithfull to their roots

    when I listen to PJ I feel it's authentic, it's true, it's strong, it's fragile, it's human; it's like us and no matter if we live in France, Poland, US, Brazil we all feel the same....

    My life wouldn't be the same without them, I love music but nothing compares to PEARL JAM!!!

    I really need them for my spiritual balance.

    So thanks a lot for the Best band EVER !!!! Happy Bday !!!

    n a very general sense I've evolved just as they have in mind, body, and spirit. Pearl Jam, to me, signifies human growth... of mind, body, and spirit. They are the only thing that has remained constant in my life for the last 20 years and their music has been there for me in good times and bad. I thank the fuck out of them for "being there" throughout more than half my life... I honestly believe my life would be different (who knows how or better/worse) without having ever had become enamored with them. I am trying to pass their gift to the world onto my 5 month old... so far so good. Here's to the next generation of Pearl Jam fans...

    Thank you Pearl Jam.

    I'm sure this is a common theme, but I can't imagine where I'd be without thier music. Hailing from Seattle like the band, I always took pride that the music of my life/generation was from my hometown. I was turned onto them back in the summer of 1993 when I was 13, and haven't looked back. There are many moments and occasions that thier music has intersected my life at critical times, and helped me get through those stages in life that are difficult, sad, or joyous. From breakups to weddings, tests to graduations, work failures to successes, they've been there for me. And they will continue to be....hopefully making music for another 20 or so years.
  • Pearl Jam (and 10C) is all that is good in the world for me. It is for everyone. It is considered, measured, non-judgemental and hopeful. It can be energetic or muted. It is always full of love.
    we're all going to the same place...

    pearl jam's music is a place for me to go to, escaping reality
  • always had a deep appreciation for music and the arts....and PJ is the one band that has been somewhat of a constant year in and year out, never tires out...for escape, for jams, for release, for just chilling....always a song for whatever mood....
