Agree on streaming numbers, I was just curious to see how they both fared and lol’d at the coincidence!

Another weird coincidence - just went outside after listening to Pearl Jam and our neighbour was out working on his car listening to them as well!

Who, Jeremy at number 10?

Porch aside, Jeremy is easily Pearl and the lads most well known song.

However, it's also very bad - so it's difficult to know whether it would bolster their crowd or cause people to actively stay away.

Think Alive is their most well known song, followed by Even Flow?

Missed you, Woff.

That was terrible, but cheers & likewise!

These are 3rd and 4th.  Also difficult to see why people would want to do anything other than give them as wide a berth as possible.

The fact that Pearl Jams top five most well known songs universally are all from the first album and then nobody knows anything from the thirty albums they’ve released since is probably as good a indicator as any as to why they haven’t been booked to headline Glastonbury. Apart from their hardcore fans who follow them from gig to gig, their legacy largely started and ended with Ten.

Hit the nail on the head here. They're essentially the killers of the 1990s. Enormous based on one album only.

Our tastes don't tend to align too often  but I'm hyped af to join you on the 'Pearl Jam are shite' train.

I did read on one of the oversees festival threads, from someone allegedly in the know, that they’d never agree to play Glastonbury as their fans wouldn’t be able to buy tickets once they were announced. Which is probably as well.

What a strange approach to things.

The irony is that my G crew are mostly all massive PJ fans so I would likely end up right down at the front of the Spunksock or whatever godforsaken name they call the pit.

Ten = Hot Fuss

Only Hot Fuss has more bangers.

The Killers certainly have more to them than one album, bit unfair to say I think

Is it just me or do the people on Facebook not understand that Glastonbury shows are expensive to do as a one off and that headliners usually do a string of shows to cover the costs therefore Taylor doing a one off show at glasto Is unlikely.

For the last however many festivals, Glastonbury has had performances that are one-off, non-touring, joining the pantheon of headliners, exclusive, bid for glory performances:

Jay-Z, Beyonce, U2, Metallica, the Stones, Kanye, Adele, Ed Sheeran and Stormzy for instance.

So they are right that it's possible. Taylor is doing shows next spring

But still unlikely knowing the mad cool situation
