Posts Tagged ‘Pearl Jam’

I don’t know what to do with Pearl Jam’s new Barak recording, “Barak Around the Clock.” [Sorry, It’s broken]

I suppose it’s meant to be funny; or maybe “edgy,” like, ironic, you know. Said with rising inflection. It’s pretty stupid, as political statements go and as music; cornball, whatever.

Mostly it makes me wonder if Pearl Jam is really still that juvenile. Makes me say “Eew, dudes, grow the hell up!” Am I really that old???

The Vulture has a funny post here, titled: “Pearl Jam Will Not Rest Until John McCain Elected President.” I wouldn’t go that far–I don’t think this has the potential to hurt Obama; but I would say “Pearl Jam Will Not Rest Until Every Shred of Their Credibility and Dignity Is Forever Gone.”

UPDATE

Well, apparently Pearl Jam is running away from “Barak Around the Clock.”  For whatever reason (I’m inclined to think the extent of mockery on the internets, but who knows) they’ve pulled it from their website.  If someone finds a working link I’ll re-link, but for the moment you’ll just have to imagine it.  Or go see David Daniel and his band perform it on Youtube.
