Pearl Jam is having a pretty big year. Seattle's finest conquered what many bands dream of (second to marrying models, which Eddie Vedder has also been victorious in), and that is reaching the level of rock legend status.
This year, aside from the release of the Pearl Jam documentary PJ20, directed by Cameron Crowe, which will be in theaters in the fall, marks the 20th Anniversary that Pearl Jam released their debut album Ten (holy cow, we're getting old).
And if you're a PJ fan, you must already know about their mega music festival in the Alpine Valley, so in honor of these great accomplishments SuperGlued presents the “Pearl Jam Twenty- Biggest Fan Contest,” a competition for fans to win a trip to the Pearl Jam concert destination.
But the question remains: Do you have what it takes to be the ultimate, reigning champion Pearl Jam fan?
If so, visit SuperGlued to see if you have what it takes to win the weekend getaway. Here's a bit about how it works: Participants can earn points for a variety of activities including posting recaps from shows over the past twenty years to correctly answering band trivia. The winner will be selected among the contest's 20 top point earners. The contest is online now and continues through August 5.
But before you get all cocky, answer these five questions first, get them right, and you're on your way to Pearl Jam paradise. (No Googling allowed).
