Funny that there's no mention of price for this last item. Any guesses? Either way, Pearl Jam -- along with Radiohead, Dave Matthews Band and very few others -- is a band that's maintained its integrity and cred even after reaching arena-level status. I mean, really, you can say that you're a Pearl Jam fan, and there's absolutely no shame, distaste or guilty pleasure involved. I saw 'em at Lollapalooza last year, and they sounded amazing -- whether they drew from early albums or played newer songs.
