The 11 Best Pearl Jam Songs (00s):

It was a tough call on a couple tracks this time around. "Brother" is technically a Ten-era outtake...but did not get a full release until the Ten Remaster from this year. So where does it belong? The 90s or 00s? I was going to leave it in the 90s...but it had no effect on the 90s and didn't get the proper mastering until just this year...and actually received some decent radio play. Tons are songs are written by bands and sit for years on the shelf...then don't get the proper exposure until years...sometimes decades later. The official release of "Brother" was given to us in the 00s...so the 00s is should remain. "Hold On" was a similar debate. It's an Vs. era track that didn't get released until 03. Since it never saw the light as a B-side or Japanese bonus track...it also remains a part of this decade. But it doesn't make the list because it lost a coin toss to "Unemployable."


Here are the 11 Best Pearl Jam Songs (00s):

1. All or None (Riot Act)
2. Insignificance (Binaural)
3. Inside Job (Pearl Jam)
4. Brother (Ten Remaster)
5. Sad (Lost Dogs - Binaural B-Side)
6. Grievance (Binaural)
7. World Wide Suicide (Pearl Jam)
8. Save You (Riot Act)
9. Thin Air (Binaural)
10. Unemployable (Pearl Jam)
11. Love, Reign O'er Me (Reign Over Me)

Nice Job. Love those songs. Give "Army Reserve" from the the Self Titled album a few more plays. I can't get enough of that track. The guitar is awesome as well as the lyrics. Also "Love Boat Captain", and "Light Years".
