Pearl Jam were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last Friday. During their acceptance speech bassist Jeff Ament gave props to several of his musical heroes including The Stooges and The Clash, and respectfully acknowledged the legion of influential and important acts that have been snubbed by the Rock Hall over the years. Ament was wearing a shirt bearing the names of many incredible acts that have not yet been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame including CAN, MC5, Roxy Music, The Smiths, Pixies, Bauhaus, Dinosaur Jr, The Cure, New Order, The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Jonathan Richman, Buzzcocks, PiL, Jane's Addiction, and tons more. Pearl Jam shared a picture of the shirt on social media. Check it out below via Pitchfork.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony airs April 29th on HBO.
