Want to break down Pearl Jam's sound to its primal ingredients. Start with a double fistful of classic rock and follow it up with a Red Bull chaser of post-punk punch. And if you think you can overestimate the Who's influence in that mix, think again. Just crank your amp to the red zone, let Roger Daltrey's primal "YEAAAAHHHHHH!" blast a hole in your soul, and you'll [i]know[/i] how "Won't Get Fooled Again" instantly converted a seven-year-old Eddie Vedder to the First Evangelical Church of the Sacred Wail. Neil Young's better-to-burn-out-than-fade-away sermon slams up hard against a Marshall stack of fuzz guitar in the ragged glory of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)." And the Pixies' Black Francis snakes his vocal's coiled-cobra menace through a sonic minefield of anvil-smash snares and sludge-smacked guitars in "Wave of Mutilation." From R.E.M. to the Sex Pistols, we've got all the essential artists and tracks that instructed, inspired, even [i]incited[/i] one of rock's most important bands.
