Great sound....
Though these Travelers stay out of the limelight, they still live like kings off of music capitalism. They are the decadent, accepting worship like gods.....
Guilty of blood, promoting communist thought like eugenics through abortion, new-ageism, destroying the foundation of society by obliterating the family model....

Im going hungery..out s h i n e d . . . ....yayaya

Like a lot of bands this is another band that formed and made enough music for an album (other bands released a second and sometimes a third even in the face of declining sales) and then they were gone. All the tail end of generation X has are songs like this that defined the greatest decade in rock since the 50's.. the 90's. Rock on.

I love this song. Does anybody else think that in the music video, Eddie Vedder was kind of left out because he was the only one who couldn't play an instrument?
