Pearl Jam and Motley Crue share a hostile relationship. Both Eddie Vedder and Nikki Sixx have been noted exchanging words in the media. Pearl Jam’s Ten Club President Tim Bierman recently hit back at Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx for making some offensive comments on Pearl Jam.
The band’s frontman Eddie Vedder had once stated that he did not like Motley Crue due to their lyricism which displays women in a bad light. In fact, Eddie Vedder said how he despised the band. Nikki Sixx took this very personally.
Nikki Sixx on one occasion fired back at Eddie Vedder stating that Eddie could not sing, and that his music was ‘boring.’ After that was disclosed by Nikki Sixx, Eddie Vedder did not respond to any of the comments that Nikki had made on Pearl Jam or himself directly, though he took an indirect shot at Tommy Lee.
Nikki Sixx also saw many of his fans come to his side on Twitter by stating such things as: “My best friend is about to have a baby. I will recommend Pearl Jam songs to put the baby to sleep hahaha.”
Nikki Sixx then suggested that the new parent should just put ‘marbles in their mouth’ and sing as they would soothe the baby even more due to the ‘zen’ of it all.
Nikki Sixx reacts to Pearl Jam-Motley Crue feud
This time around Nikki Sixx liked a couple of tweets from fans about the heated feud between Pearl Jam and Motley Crue. Sixx had provided an update to a fan about playing at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. One of the fans took note of the bassist’s Tweet and said: “Assuming we shouldn’t be expecting Eddie V or Neil Young to come out and sing Dr. Feelgood with the boys?”
One of the fans also had sent out a response to Nikki Sixx calling Pearl Jam ‘boring and the bassist liked the reponse: “I think I’ve seen both of you twice – Pearl Jam on their first tour and then much later at MSG, Motley Crue on a later tour and then your farewell tour. The bands are so different I don’t see the point in arguing about it. And they both deliver.”

I also hate when "cool" bands knock metal/hard rock bands. Like once when Peter Buck dissed Guns N Roses (this was a hundred years ago when both were huge). I loved them both and was just annoyed.
