List Rules Vote on the Pearl Jam rarities you think are their best. Also, only band rarities, not solo projects or solo covers. Only songs played with the full band

Pearl Jam, unlike any other band, has one of the deepest and most comprehensive catalogs in music. Due to their vast knowledge of music, the band has covered some of the biggest and best songs of all time. That doesn't even include their own B-sides and long, lost songs, which can be found in one of their epic live shows. Pearl Jam's live shows usually have these songs sprinkled in the set list, which makes them popular within the realm of diehards.

Fans usually can judge a show by how many rarities, B-sides and covers are played, which is to say judging by the few shows the band plays per year, isn't very often. While the general public may veer closer to songs like "Last Kiss," a cover of J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers classic, which took on a life of its own when it was released on the 1998 Fan Club Christmas single. The same goes for "Yellow Ledbetter," which is known and beloved by many, but there is a legion of die-hards who are ready for that song to be retired from the live show.

As for other songs, you can never go wrong with the two songs off the Singles soundtrack. In case you don't know, those are the scarcely played "Breath" and the not-so-scarcely played "State of Love and Trust." Those two rockers are always welcome and sound just as good as they did when they were first recorded. On the covers front, anything by The Who, especially "Love, Reign O'er Me" and concert staple "Baba O'Riley" are appreciated. The same goes for anything from the Neil Young songbook, which will usually mean "Rockin in the Free World."

Take a look at this list and if you see something missing (there are a lot of songs to go through after all), feel free to add it! Vote for your favorite Pearl Jam cover songs and B-sides.
