Dave Grohl Joins Pearl Jam To Cover MC5


    For a short while in the Nineties, a music fan could either be a fan of Pearl Jam or Nirvana, but not both. The former thought the latter were too whiny to rock, and the offended parties sniffed that names didn’t hurt when uttered by posers. That’s all water under the bridge now, though, as Dave Grohl joined Pearl Jam on stage at the Werchter Festival in Belgium to play MC5’s “Kick out the Jams.” Though the sound quality is less than stellar, the clip proves that rock, festivals, and possibly Belgium are unifying forces in the universe.
