Ugh.  Please guys, just stick with music.  Your politics (while I, and many of your fans may agree with the basis of the argument) are far too simplistic and often ignorant.  You're filling your time with low-hanging-fruit arguments, when you have an amazing decades-long catalog of music to play.

FTA: "Eddie Vedder: Romney Comments Are 'Very Upsetting'."

True. But then again, so was that ukulele album.

"Irr ery UPsheirr ta herra praahdafrrr candada beSO easalir dizmizizza sucha ginoramars amonada populashuuuuuuuuu-YOW," Vedder told the Obama donors.

Vedder told the audience that he struggled as a young man and credited a government training program with helping him learn the skills he needed to become a security guard in San Diego, a job that helped support his rock `n roll ambitions.

Awww crap! I have to vote for Romney now :-(

Do not disturb my position on the kneejerk hater bandwagon please. I can't be cool if I don't hate anything that was every popular.

"It's very upsetting to hear a presidential candidate be so easily dismissive of such a ginormous amount of the population," Vedder told the Obama donors.

I know...I mean, that's like a brazilian people!

I always liked grunge. Then again, that's probably because that was the soundtrack to my teen years. I was always more of an Alice in Chains guy than a Pearl Jam guy, though.

Yeah, sure. His comments = Ted Nugent's comments. Both sides are bad.

Besides, nobody could possibly relate to what they're saying.

It's some other "47%" of the country, right? And we should shut up about it unless we're a licensed sociologist with a book coming out.

There. That should settle it.

I don't know what you were listening to, but I recollect that grunge was just about the only good thing to come out of the 90s as far as rock and roll is concerned, retro-garage and R&B bands notwithstanding.

it's funny how they knocked on Bush which he deserved. But Obama renews Patriot Act, NDAA ect.. and they're fine with it.

There were some good alt-rock bands too. Smashing Pumpkins and what not. And White Zombie hit it big in those years too.

Nigel Tufnel: [on what he would do if he couldn't be a rock star] Well, I suppose I could, uh, work in a shop of some kind, or... or do, uh, freelance, uh, selling of some sort of, uh, product. You know...
Marty DiBergi: A salesman?
Nigel Tufnel: A salesman, like maybe in a, uh, haberdasher, or maybe like a, uh, um... a chapeau shop or something. You know, like, "Would you... what size do you wear, sir?" And then you answer me.
Marty DiBergi: Uh... seven and a quarter.
Nigel Tufnel: "I think we have that." See, something like that I could do.
Marty DiBergi: Yeah... you think you'd be happy doing something like-...
Nigel Tufnel: "No; we're all out. Do you wear black?" See, that sort of thing I think I could probably... muster up.
Marty DiBergi: Do you think you'd be happy doing that?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, I don't know - wh-wh-... what're the hours?

Yeah they did surprisingly reinvent themselves, I forgot about that. Bonus: Alicia Silverstone in the videos

The members of PJ did a very, very cool thing for me and my brother in law that they didn't have to do, and easily could've rejected. I'm not going to criticize the man or the band, they're incredibly approachable, and as far as millionaires go, they relate better to the average person.

Don't need any pop culture "icons" or Hollywood stars to inform me about politics and how I should vote, but Pearl Jam has been one of my favorite bands in the past 20 some years and their concert in SoCal 2003 (2nd night Irvine Meadows) was, by far, the most amazing show I've seen...evar.
This was the first of many, many encores, some time after midnight, under the SoCal night sky.....I guess you'd have to have been there.
...and yes, he was drunk on wine.
