Pearl Jam's "Corduroy" Covered on Jimmy Fallon
This week is “Pearl Jam Week” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Each night, artists all over are teaming up to perform covers that pay homage to the band. Last night, Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold and Grizzly Bear guitarist Daniel Rossen performed “Corduroy” off Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy.
Of course there can be no Pearl Jam week without Pearl Jam themselves, and the band will be on hand to debut new music from Lightning Bolt on both Thursday and Friday to wrap up the festivities.
Along with getting their own week at Late Night – an honor previously bestowed upon Bruce Springsteen and Justin Timberlake – you'll be able to catch Pearl Jam throughout the World Series: The band recently signed a deal with Fox Sports that places 48 of their songs, including all 12 from Lightning Bolt within the channel's Series' programming, which kicks off tomorrow.
