Mudhoney is good too. And Soundgarden is another band that I love. Chris Cornell's got one of those voices that just sends shivers down your spine. Like Robert Plant kind of, only more hardcore. But I still like Pearl Jam better than all the others of the time period. And I guess I wouldn't consider them grunge anyhow, I would call them straight Hard Rock. I love Eddie Vedders voice too, and i don't care if they are comercialized, that's not what's important to me. To me it's all about good music, and good shows, and they provide both. It's just none of those bands speak to me as much as Pearl Jam does. The Smashing Pumpkins are pretty close, but not as good. I guess Pearl Jam's music is just more versatile. It's not always banging your head with them. They have alot of soft, slow songs that are real tear jerkers. For me anyhow. To each his own man. I'm all about that.
