Pearl Jam are kicking off a fall North American tour tonight (Friday, October 11) in Pittsburgh in support of their new album, Lightning Bolt. Fans filling arenas across the country can expect new tracks and plenty of classics, from "Alive" and "Even Flow" to "The Fixer," "Given to Fly" and many, many more. But any band can walk onstage and play their own material; it takes seasoned, road-tested veterans to break out a litany of covers at a moment's notice. Pearl Jam is that band.
Over their 23-year-long career, frontman Eddie Vedder and the boys have paid homage to their heroes, from Johnny Cash to Devo, via a collection of spot-on covers. We collected the best of the best in the hopes that PJ break a few out this autumn on the road.
