Pearl Jam destroyed this song.....oh my God....nails on a chalkboard.....
he(Vedder) says "you didn't think I had it in me".......honey, I know he didn't...

Hate to admit it, but I like the clean tone sounds when PJ plays Running.........

It has kind of a sexy, dreamy quality. Other than that, PJ's version is just mocking the band that we all love.

I haven't heard it. Is it available on any of Pearl Jams' singles, or what was the circumstance that led them to cover it? Certainly RWTD and Pearl Jam doesn't seem like a match made in heaven.

I'm going to throw this over to the Songs/Albums Forum, see who has heard it over there.

am i missing something??? Pearl Jam doing RWTD???

maybe i'm crazy,
or just too high...

I'm going to speculate that this was before they "hit big"

I like a few Pearl Jam songs....but.....
unlike Van Halen covers.....they (Pearl Jam) didn't do this cover tune justice...just my two cents....

Glenn, I got this off Napster....
I think the sound quality had a lot to do with it, but.....I thought it would be betterhttp://

That is definitely NOT Eddie Vedder singing that song! I've heard somewhere that it was actually Pearl Jam guitarist Mike Mc Cready, but having never heard him sing anything else, I can't confirm that. I CAN confirm that it is not Eddie Vedder! I have MP3's in which he covers everyone from the Who to Neil Diamond and he never fails to sound exactly like......Eddie Vedder.

Van HALEN is: Dave, Eddie, Mikey, Alex. Any questions?

i do beleive that it is a mad season cover. mad season consists of the lead singer from alice in chains and the guitarists from PJ plus a few others. i read somewhere that it was an outtake when they were recording the album mad season and the guitarist sang it cause the singer was pulling off a cone. have never heard it though....you just got to love rock 'n' roll. i'll see if i can track down the article.

Right Now..... you need to Eat Us And Smile!!!
