Pearl Jam cover Eagles of Death Metal in Brazil

November 23, 2015

Pearl Jam covered Eagles of Death Metal’s ‘I Want You So Hard (Boy’s Bad News)’ at their show in Belo Horizonte on Friday night (November 20).


The cover comes one week after 89 were killed at an Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris’ Bataclan on November 13.

The two bands have substantial past connections. Pearl Jam’s 2012 Christmas single ‘In The Moonlight’ features Eagles of Death Metal’s Josh Homme, while Homme has also performed at shows alongside Pearl Jam with his other band Queens of the Stone Age.

Pearl Jam have been playing a number of covers throughout their South American tour, including tracks by The Beatles, Pink Floyd and John Lennon.


Eagles of Death Metal recently gave their 1st interview following the Paris attacks – with EODM frontman Jesse Hughes telling VICE Magazine, “People were playing dead, and they were so scared. A great reason why so many were killed is because so many people wouldn’t leave their friends, and so many people put themselves in front of people. They [fans] were hiding in our dressing room, and the killers were able to get in. They killed all of them, except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket.”
