THIS is definitely the best pearl jam song EVER written If you don't think so just grab your lady and feel the difference Check out my profile
It's a good thing live songs don't fade out; Black has an ending! It finishes it off better than the original where I have to hear him sadly sing as it fades out, leaving me in a bit of slight sadness.

I believe we caught Pearl Jam on the '98 tour in Knoxville TN. That was one of the best shows I have ever seen, though it is funny how the memories fade about specific shows as we grow older. Also saw them in 2003 in Nashville and again at Bonnaroo in 2008. All really good shows. The guys standing next to me were bad mouthing Pearl Jam saying they only do it for the money nowadays, I think I had a few beers and thought about punching em in da trap, but I meandered though the crowd to another s
