Riff: Pearl Jam – “Mind Your Manners”

Jul 12, 2013

I caught myself believing/That I needed God/And if he’s out there somewhere we sure could use him now

from Mind Your Manners lyrics by Pearl Jam

Paired w/ a blood-splattered image of a Glock and rosary beads on a dinner plate, PJ’s LP10 summon-the-powers-of-punk single assault is all oi-it wry smiles for those that dig some politics in their Vedder howls. Organized religion, it seems. Either way, the steam is brilliantly hot at band age 23.
