Maybe this isn’t Pearl Jam’s greatest song. But I think it’s their catchiest.
I’m not a gigantic Peal Jam fan. I do love Eddie Vedder’s Into the Wild soundtrack album, and Pearl Jam has a couple of albums I really like. But this song is catchy and mocks the inanity of keeping a loaded gun around for no good reason.
And Vedder really put a good vent about it in the lyrics. The story is here.
