Eddie Vedder dedicates a performance to Kurt Cobain and the date is given as "April 8th, 1994 - The Day Kurt Died".
This may appear as a goof, as in some places it is mentioned that Kurt Cobain died on April 5th 1994.
Both dates are relevant: April 8th is the day Kurt Cobain was discovered dead.

In Pearl Jam Twenty, Cameron Crowe is able to show the roots of this quintessential rock band. As the movie progressed it is clear that this band has calmed down from its reckless early phase and moved into a niche, where there is a unique give and take between the band and its fans. Even the overview about the many different drummers that the band has employed was taken almost as an inside joke, where one who has followed the band would understand and laugh a little. Overall, the first ten years of the band are well documented and show a band that grew from the ashes and fought against ticket pricing and mainstream attention. While the band has continued for ten more years, it glosses over these years with only live performance footage and the bands rightful distaste for GW.
Overall, the documentary hits a homerun and makes this fan realize how far this band has come and how far it can still go.
