* LongTitle: They usually have one word-title songs. They eventually got tired of it and wrote "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town".

* LongTitle: They usually have one word-title songs. They eventually got tired of it and wrote "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town". That title especially stands out on the back cover of ''Vs'', which is otherwise entirely one or two word titles.

* AxCrazy: "Once", where the individual first seen in "Alive" has turned into a serial killer who has long since passed the point where he could control his urges.

** As most of the band, including Eddie Vedder, are huge NBA fans, one can't be blamed if they hear "lick the dirt off [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakeem_Olajuwon Olajuwon]]'s feet" instead of "lick the dirt off a larger one's feet" in "Rats". After all, ''vs.'' was released in 1993, when Hakeem "The Dream" was one of the NBA's top players.

** The last lines of "Rats" are a direct quote of Music/MichaelJackson's first big solo hit -- "Ben, the two of us need look no more."

Since then, the band has rebelled against their fame and stardom, first by boycotting and later suing the mega-corporation Ticketmaster, which would raise consumer ticket prices at band shows. Due to the lawsuit, the band's ability to receive proper venues declined, much to the chagrin of its audience. Pearl Jam then decided to move away from their ArenaRock roots (for the most part) to more experimental sounds in AlternativeRock on later albums ''Vitalogy'', ''No Code'', and ''Riot Act''. While not commercially well-received, critics lauded Pearl Jam's material through the mid- to late-[[TheNineties '90s]] before the band hit a period of stagnation at the TurnOfTheMillennium.

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Dave Abbruzzese's drumming was incredibly energetic, which forced the band to consider a massive shift in their style once he left. He also wrote "Go", which became a hit.



** "Bu$hleaguer"'s target is obvious.

The rest is rock history; their first album, ''{{Music/Ten}}'', sold over 13 million copies, with the singles "Alive" and "Jeremy" becoming massively successful. ''Vs.'', the second, reached #1 on the charts the week it came out, outselling the other nine albums on the top 10 combined. This led to some backlash from purist Seattle rock groups, especially Music/KurtCobain of Music/{{Nirvana}}, who even alleged that the band had sold out to the mainstream. This led to CreatorBacklash from Vedder, who decided to erase any pretense of commercialism from the band's music, which led to some tension with the band members; they had a RevolvingDoorLineUp of drummers around this time due to internal differences.
