    So are the people that don't like/complain about new music off of new albums the same ones that complain about Evenflo and Jeremy and go to the bathroom when they are played?  Are they only happy with middle career songs?

    Are the ones that don't like/complain about new songs off of new albums the same ones that complained about Binaural and Riot Act songs in 2000 and 2003? (there were many people that complained/did not like the "new stuff" back then.as well.  Maybe even more so.)  If so, are they the same ones that now go ape sh!t if they play a Riot Act or Binaural song they have been "chasing"?

    Try asking Siri to play Pearl Jam’s new song. Shocking what comes up. For me it was Black live version from MTV Unplugged. That is too fng funny.

    Growing up listening to classic-rock radio, I noticed that they generally played songs from throughout the major artists' careers. (And they still do.) For example, they didn't just play songs from the Beatles' pre-Revolver era, or just play songs from Led Zeppelin's first four albums. The whole span of their careers are represented. The same goes for Pink Floyd, The Who, etc.

    Listening to what passes for modern-rock radio today (which is mostly oldies with two or three "new" songs thrown in every hour), it's the exact opposite. You would think that all of big rock acts that came up in the early '90s were defunct like Nirvana by 1995 based on what still gets played (which is a reflection of what audiences want to hear). The only Pearl Jam songs that get played are from the first three albums. There are no Smashing Pumpkins songs post-Mellon Collie. And so on. As someone here noted recently, Pearl Jam will release a new single soon and, within a few weeks, it will disappear and radio stations will just go back to playing "Better Man." (I'm referencing radio here, which still has a massive audience despite what a lot of people think, but the point goes for other distribution channels as well. It will disappear from modern-rock streaming playlists, too.)

    I bring this up because I see this manifested in the attitude a lot of people have when seeing these bands live. They're happy seeing a set that could have been played in 1995 even though it's 2024. For the third time, to each their own, but I just can't relate. I honestly don't ever need to see the big hits from the first three albums ever performed again. Even "Alive," a song I never thought I would tire of seeing performed live, has begun to feel very perfunctory.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    Hey, man, I saw them play almost the whole thing with Dave Krusen in Fresno. The novelty of being one of the few people to see them play twice with Krusen (at the RRHOF and in Fresno) was exciting, but now there really is nothing for me to see with respect to that album unless they're going to do "Oceans" and "Release" with Krusen.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    I imagine that first single might be at the top of this years Spotify Wrapped.
    And the album will be the one most spun this year.

    ^ This, which also explains why DotC spiked to the top of my list in 2020. Release early in the year, pile up streams for ~11 months for those year-end wrapups

    Can't please em all. I am excited for any new PJ and any tour opportunities. How sad it would be (will be) :( when we aren't able to anticipate new music and shows from our favorite band? I'd give anything to get more from Blind Melon, Nirvana, AIC, Soundgarden, any and all of my/your favorites who are no longer around for whatever the reason.

    I guess it is apathy, but it does come off as spoiled when we are the lucky ones that have had these guys going for 30+ years. As much as I'd love another 90s era PJ album, I was thinking the other day how much I would like an Avocado/Riot Act quality adjacent album. Those two are great, but overall very underrated IMO. I've enjoyed every album for what it is. Some songs aren't my favorite, but all in all a fantastic catalogue for us to explore.

    ^^True words spoken. The Grateful Dead, another one of my Mount Rushmore bands, was active for thirty years. For the longest time that seemed to me to be the musical equivalent of eternity....and then the mighty PJ sailed past that mark. To echo your point: No doubt, we are lucky to still be part of a living, evolving, all encompassing trip :rock_on: #builtolast

    Whether I listen to the single a lot or wait, I'm looking forward to hearing how dumb/crazy I am for my opinion, good or bad.

    I am excited to hear what Andrew Watt was able to pull out of the band, especially with how much of a pleasant surprise Earthling was

    At this point, i'm 80% here for the live shows and 20% here for new music, but I will spin the new album and singles a bit when they release.

    Got chills hearing the snippet from today's tease :rock_on:
    First thing tomorrow upon waking I'm checking Spotify to see if the eagle has landed (did the same thing this morning, btw :glasses:)
    Still haven't listened to the back door taper's recording. Waiting to hear it proper.
