Stream Pearl Jam’s ‘Early Years of Grunge’ Playlist

Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, and more featured on handcrafted Songza mix

Pearl Jam have teamed with the folks at Songza for a history lesson on “The Early Years of Grunge.” The Seattle survivors — who released their 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, last fall — have curated a special playlist that honors the heroes of their pioneering hometown — specifically Green River, Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Alice in Chains. As heard below, the exclusive playlist features tracks by all of the aforementioned artists (including, of course, Pearl Jam themselves), and offers a look at grunge’s nascent days, before the genre took command of the Billboard charts. Revisit the late ’80s and early ’90s, and let the flannel fly.
