In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction; this band has endured and thrived. This documentary asks the question why.

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.

I have been a fan on Pearl Jam for years. I was 18 when the Seattle scene broke, so Pearl Jam became the soundtrack of my young adult years.
I was a bit leery of this movie, as it could have really have turned me off the band depending on how it all went down. I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole movie. The crowd singing the song "Better Man", brought tears to my eyes. You really get an idea of how fast the band became huge, and the problems they had keeping their "art" rather than their business. I have gained a greater appreciation for this rock band, and it just made me a bigger fan
Simply put, Pearl Jam "10" one of the greatest rock records ever, and Pearl jam "20" one of the greatest rock movies ever
