Watch Eddie Vedder Emotionally Cover Nine Inch Nails Classic


Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder performed in Sao Paulo on Wednesday night, and he covered “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. Vedder had only covered the song four times before, and with the loss of so many rock legends in the last year, the performance had even more power. See the setlist (via Sea on the forums) and watch the video below.
