Every time I hear this song, It reminds me of KURT COBAIN... He was eddie's friend. The two legendary musicians of Grunge music... It's really an amazing song... Smooth, melodious and full of pureness.. The lyrics is also outstanding... In one word AWESOME!

Sheer magic! It makes you realize that in a world where the news is dominated by war and violence, you shouldn't get numb and look the other way. Besides getting the message across it's a wonderful atmospheric song.

22Sad

Pearl Jam never should have rejected this song from Binaural. Even though it didn't really fit the style of the album, this song does not deserve to be a B-side. - Songsta41

This song certanly deseves to be top 5 at least I meant its way better than last kiss with and epic riff equal to even flow

Incredible live. Ridiculous energy. Not as epic as Alive but so energetic and great to head bang and just generally go wild to! Potentially my favourite Pearl Jam track! Needs to be in the top 10!

Top ten worthy. Great song. Possibly the best live PJ song, besides Alive and Evenflow.

24Brain of J.

Awesome riff full of energy! This song deserves a higher position! It gives me chills just playing it

How is this song not #1? The chorus is amazing! I listened to this song almost 20 times the first day I heard it. - InPillForm

26Grievance

Will forever be my favorite song."for every tool they lend us
A loss of independence
I pledge my grievance to the flag
Cause you don't give blood then take it back again"

27Do the Evolution

Deserves to be in the top 10 for sure

This song was the one which made me a fan of PJ, still love it an the video rocks! I'd like Pearl Jam to make more songs as revelious as this one!

Like an evolutionary biologist, I love this song!

Seriously, folks? #24? Did you really mean #2 or #4? That's the only explanation I can surmise.

The best version is on their greatest hits albums and it is truly awesome. The most underrated pearl jam track.

Ten is a great album, but it never gets credit for fantastic bonus tracks like Breath.

Most underrated Pearl Jam song!

31Go

Absolute monster of an opening song. The drums are about as savage as they get. I can't believe this song is so low on the list. Perfect opening track for Vs.

Beast of an opening song. Gets the heart racing. Brings back memories of when I first listened to Vs.

All of their songs are good. One cannot simply choose one.

Favorite new song. So much emotion and soul.

This so called "Power Ballad" isn't very Pearl Jam but it is mellow and mature. I absolutely love this song! Just have a sook at the lyrics people. This deserves to be in the top 10.

Are you kidding? No. 25? This song deserves to be in the top 10 at least. a thing of pure beauty and unbelievable emotion and passion. Just blows you away each time.

This song deserves to be in the top 5. Amazing song!

Am I the only one who notices that Justin Bieber's Somebody to Love is based on (whether it was intentional or not) the tune after the second chorus of this song? - Songsta41

Great melody and nostalgic mood creator of a song...

Talk about underrated, this is a beautiful song

This is such a perfect song, that only gets better as it goes on. - Songsta41

36Dissident

Come on people! 44... 44? I've always loved PJ but this is their first song that I couldn't stop listening to. McCready's ability to express despair with that weeping guitar lead is on display here and really what drives this song. Love the riff during the verse too. Perfectly compliments Vedder's tone. Kind of masks the seriousness of what's about to go down. I imagine that's how the dissident probably felt before he was turned over. Elated and unaware until he gets slammed with crushing despair realizing the one he loves most has betrayed him.

This is the only Pearl Jam song I've ever done Karaoke to. As a matter of fact, it's only the second song I've ever done Karaoke to. And, I remember when I was singing it, there were two people in the audience, a guy and a girl, not together, that were singing along, but singing heartedly and I felt connected to them. Like we were only 3 people in the bar that had ever really experienced Pearl Jam's best song ever.

Best lead ever! I can't believe this isn't in the top 10 much less the top 20. This also makes it the most underrated Pearl Jam song of all time.
Come on: "She had to turn around" and then mcreedy goes in and absolutely dominates.

This song needs to be a top 15 song. I don't get it. Its even a radio hit.

This is a goofy song, not Ina very good way, more cringe worthy, does not belong on any best of list.

Best bass line in history. I would like Eddie to be more aggressive on this one - Insignificance

Should be higher on the list, definitely.

Best Pearl Jam chorus in my opinion from far far..

Incredible tune... Best track on Lightening Bolt. I think this song is as good as any of the material in their earlier days if not better. Very powerful lyric and drumming is spectacular. As always the emotion by Vedder is unparalleled. Surprised the music hasn't been adopted by Bill Maher's show.

Definitely best song on Lightning Bolt. I love the message. Rails against those who attempt to force their beliefs and lifestyles onto others. "Simon says stand up, sit down, you're out"

Should be at least top 15.
