Pearl Jam Trivia Questions

1. Two founding members of Pearl Jam, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, had played together before in Mother Love Bone. This band seemed destined for success until its charismatic lead singer died of an overdose. Who was Mother Love Bone's lead singer?

From Quiz
No Code: The Story of Pearl Jam

Answer: Andy Wood

Ament and Gossard first played together in Green River, one of many aspiring Seattle bands in the 1980s. After Green River split up they hooked up with Malfunkshun lead singer Andy Wood to form Mother Love Bone. This band seemed destined to make it big until Wood died of a heroin overdose on March 19, 1990, aged only 24. Less then a month after Wood's death Mother Love Bone's first full-length album "Apple" was released. Although both were profoundly shocked by Wood's premature death they still wanted to continue to make rock music. Gossard got reacquainted with guitarist Mike McCready, whom he knew from high school. McCready had almost given up on playing in a rock band after his former band Shadow had split up. Ament, Gossard and McCready were the core of the newly founded band, which they provisionally named Mookie Blaylock, after a New Jersey Nets player. Now they still needed a drummer and a lead singer. They asked Jack Irons, former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, to join them. Irons was already committed to touring with another band so he declined (he would be Pearl Jam's drummer from 1994 to 1998). However, he suggested a friend, Eddie Vedder, as a potential lead singer. Vedder was handed an instrumental demo to which he added his vocals. The band was so impressed by Vedder's vocals they immediately asked him to join. The songs on this demo would become some of Pearl Jam's most iconic songs: "Alive", "Once" and "Footsteps". When Dave Krusen joined as drummer Pearl Jam's first lineup was complete. The three wrong answers are also musicians who died of drug overdose. Layne Staley was the lead singer of Alice in Chains, Shannon Hoon the lead singer of Blind Melon. Jonathan Melvoin, brother of Lisa Melvoin from Wendy & Lisa, toured with The Smashing Pumpkins, playing keyboards.

2. Why did the band call their CD "Ten"?

From Quiz Pearl Jam-Ten

Answer: It was named after Mookie Blaylock's jersey number.

This was Pearl Jam's debut CD, released in August of 1991. The band consisted of lead singer Eddie Vedder, lead guitarist Mike McReady, guitarist Stone Gossard, bassist Jeff Ament and drummer Dave Krusen. Mookie Blaylock was an All-star basketball player who the band admired.

3. Which Pearl Jam album has a song featuring this line: "I cannot stop the thought of running in the dark"?

From Quiz Ipod Shuffle 19: Pearl Jam 01-Name the Album 1

Answer: Vitalogy

This line comes from the song "Immortality", which Eddie Vedder purportedly had written about Kurt Cobain's suicide.

4. Exalted Seventh Letter of the Alphabet

From Quiz Pearl Jam Songs... In Other Words

Answer: Glorified G

"Glorified G" was first played in public at the University of Montana, Missoula, in 1993. The song is one of several where bassist Jeff Ament, who hails from Montana, uses an electric stand-up bass. The Carruthers "Sub-1" model bass was used for Pearl Jam's "Saturday Night Live" performance of the song "Daughter."

5. From which song would you find this lyric: "On the edge windowsill, ponders his maker, ponders his will to the street below he just ain't nothin', but he's got a great view"?

From Quiz Pearl Jam's "Ten" Album

Answer: Deep

Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament wrote the music for "Deep". Eddie Vedder wrote the lyrics. The song has a very dark lyrical meaning, which focuses mainly on suicide.

6. Who was the drummer on Pearl Jam's 1991 debut album "Ten"?

From Quiz Pearl Jam Stuff

Answer: Dave Krusen

Dave Krusen was Pearl Jam's drummer until May of 1991, when he chose to quit the band.

7. What is the name of the song that Stone Gossard sang on the "No Code" CD?

From Quiz Pearl Jam

Answer: Mankind

Stone Gossard was born July 20, 1966.

8. What song from Pearl Jam's first album "Ten" contains these lyrics: "Oh. Hear my name. Take a good look. This could be the day. Hold my hand. Walk beside me. I just need to say."?

From Quiz Pearl Jam Lyrics

Answer: Porch

From the first studio album "Ten", "Porch" was never released as a single, but remains a live favourite. It was written by Eddie Vedder.

9. What Pearl Jam song does this lyric come from: "...are you woman enough to be my man"?

From Quiz Pearl Jam Trivia

Answer: Hail, Hail

This song is off of the "No Code" album.

10. Where was Pearl Jam's first show played?

From Quiz Pearl Jam Fan Test

Answer: Off Ramp

Their first show was actually under the name Mookie Blaylock, their favourite basketball player apparently.

11. What was Mike Mccready's band pre-Pearl Jam?

From Quiz Just The Facts - Pearl Jam

Answer: Shadow

The Rockfords are actually his side project. I believe some of his bandmates from Shadow are also in the group. Kids is actually the band Johnny Depp was in when he was a kid. And Insanity I made up- it probably is a band, but not one I know of :)

12. 'I've used hammers made out of wood'

From Quiz Pearl Jam Lyrics II

Answer: 'Light Years'

'Light Years' is from the latest album 'Binaural' as is 'Nothing as it Seems'. 'Faithfull' is from the album 'Yield' and 'In My Tree' is from 'No Code'.

13. Name this PJ tune:'If there was a reason, it was you.'

From Quiz Amazing Pearl Jam Lyrics

Answer: 'Footsteps'

14. Is the album title written on the CD?

From Quiz Pearl Jam's No Code Album

Answer: Yes

Scrambled in the red letters of the alphabet, are the words Pearl Jam and No Code.

15. What is Eddie Vedder's full name?

From Quiz Pearl Jam

Answer: Edward Louis Severson III & Edward Louis Severson 3 & edward louis severson III & edward louis severson 3

This one's a given for any obsessive Pearl Jam fan. {;)}

16. What is the name of the band that consists of members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, put together as a tribute to the deceased lead singer of Mother Love Bone?

From Quiz No Code: The Story of Pearl Jam

Answer: Temple of the Dog

Andy Wood was a roommate of Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell at the time of his death. Cornell wrote some songs about Wood that he thought weren't suitable for Soundgarden. Together with former Mother Love Bone members Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, and Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron they formed Temple of the Dog. Eddie Vedder had only just been recruited as lead singer of Pearl Jam (then still called Mookie Blaylock). During the recording of "Hunger Strike", which would become the first single, Vedder helped Cornell out with the vocals. He also did backing vocals on other Temple of the Dog songs. Temple of the Dog would release one album in honor of Andy Wood and perform live only once, although Temple of the Dog songs are occasionally played during Pearl Jam concerts. David Cameron would Join Pearl Jam as drummer in 1999. This means that all members of the band were part of Temple of the Dog, together with Chris Cornell. The album "Temple of the Dog" was released in spring 1991, shortly before the grunge scene exploded into mainstream. Although Temple of the Dog would benefit from the grunge wave, the band was pushed into the background by the success of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. The three wrong answers are side projects of Pearl Jam members. Stone Gossard plays in Brad, Mike McCready has played together with Layne Staley in Alice in Chains spin off Mad Season, and Jeff Ament has played in Three Fish.

17. This line comes from an album that has a rather aggressive hard rock sound, though the song itself is rather mellow in contrast to the rest of the album. What album features "I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room."?

From Quiz Ipod Shuffle 19: Pearl Jam 01-Name the Album 1

Answer: Vs

The song is from "Indifference", the closing song on "Vs." "Vs." is a very aggressive, hard-rock album, and "Indifference", the album's closer, is a much more mellow tune musically. The music fits in well with the lyrics.

18. From which song would you find this lyric: "Backstreet lover on the side of the road, I got a bomb in my temple that is gonna explode"?

From Quiz Pearl Jam's "Ten" Album

Answer: Once

This song is a part of the "Mamasan trilogy". "Once" is about a man turning into a serial killer.

From Quiz Pearl Jam Lyrics

28. For this song, Eddie got his inspiration from his love of surfing. The line in question is: "Oh. Oh. Oh I will be, I will be there once more." What's the album?

From Quiz Ipod Shuffle 19: Pearl Jam 01-Name the Album 1

Answer: Ten

This line is from the song "Oceans". Eddie Vedder was stuck in a rain storm when he wrote these lyrics. According to Jeff Ament, they put "Oceans" on "Ten", as musically it is one of the "weirder" moments and the band wanted the freedom to explore those musical detours later on. "Oceans" was the fourth single from "Ten".
