Since bursting out of Seattle with 1991's multi-platinum selling Ten, Pearl Jam have become one of the finest rock bands in the world today. Eddie Vedder & Co. set about reconstructing their sound while campaigning against the more unjust aspects of the music industry. After 20 years Pearl Jam refuse to rest on their laurels, constantly exploring new musical directions while remaining as fiercely loyal to their fans as ever. Interviews with the band, contributions from their closest allies and from the finest rock writers, rare and classic performance footage, and many other features make this the finest documentary in existence on this most iconic of rock acts.
This profile of the seminal alternative rock band Pearl Jam traces the group's story, from underground obscurity in late '80s Seattle, to a level of rock stardom that infamously spurred Kurt Cobain to call the band "grunge sell outs." The release uses rare interviews, backstage footages, performances, as well as criticism and analysis by rock journalists and fellow musicians to tell the band's tale.
