  • Dreux

    The K on the shirt made it for me.

  • Bill

    That was outstanding in every way! The nod to Kurt in ’94 was moving and this was a great way to end this performance. Fallon is something…

  • muthafuthinASH

    Hahahahahahahaha! That K…

    Notice the tattoo on his right calf like the real Eddie has. Fallon did his homework!

    Jimmy Fallon is insanely good. He also sang as Jim Morrison a few months back and it was INCREDIBLE – sounded just like him.

    Actually the real Eddie Vedder is a big Chicago Bulls fan.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Eddie Vedder kidnaps Jimmy Fallon, locks him in a basement, and forces him to hear ‘Riot Act’ over and over again as vengeance… LOL!

  • Andrei

    That was some awesome shit!

  • dj

    fantastic! but I didn’t like the Kurt Cobain reference, too painful

  • Millz

    Riot Act rules. Like a sequel to No Code.

  • dj

    no code is great, riot act…uhm NO!

  • Nick

    I don’t get what was a reference to Cobain?
