Top Ten Pearl Jam Moments of 2021, Dishonorable Mention


This collectible didn't make our list this year.  Heck, we didn't even report on it when it happened.  However, it would be unfair to say it wasn't a "Pearl Jam Moment."  Pearl Jam tweeted about the availability of this 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Reissue of No Code at 1:09 pm ET on Tuesday, June 15th, 2021.  It was sold out about 5 minutes later.  

The vast majority of fans didn't even know this record existed until it was gone.  There is also significant debate on the necessity of pushing the album out onto two albums, since the original fits on one and still sounds great.  

The was a little disappointed in this piece memoriabilia because it was available only to those who can sit at their computer all day with Twitter notifications on or those with $200-$400 to pick one up on eBay.  Why Pearl Jam didn't randomize these into shipments of the normal, black vinyl reissue that also came out this year, we will never understand, but we'll serve it up between #6 and #5, because ... well ... it happened.

Joy to The Haves!
