Pearl Jam performs cover of 'Let It Go' from 'Frozen'

Pearl Jam Performs Cover Of 'Let It Go' From 'Frozen'


What do Pearl Jam singer and grunge icon Eddie Vedder and "Frozen" star and snow queen Elsa have in common? More than you might think. No, your ears aren't deceiving you - that was the real Eddie Vedder, actually singing "Let It Go" at a concert in Milan Friday night. The band broke into the "Frozen" anthem while jamming out after playing its song "Daughter." Out Magazine says in covering "Let It Go," Vedder joins a long list of YouTubers, weathercasters, Demi Lovato and even Mr. Freeze, of Batman fame, who have also covered the chart-topper.


But it looks like Pearl Jam's cover might have put the cover on ice for some critics. A columnist for io9 writes: "This is it, folks. The end of the line. The shark has been jumped." And some YouTube commenters agreed, writing, "I guess we're just gonna pretend that 'Let It Go' wasn't out of his vocal range and he didn't blow a lot of the notes?" And, "the let it go cover sounded awful." For what it's worth, the audience didn't seem to mind all that much. They even joined in toward the end, singing along during the chorus.


Pearl Jam is currently on a European tour that wraps up in July, but there's still no word on whether more Disney covers are on the way.

Another case of a song being beaten to death. Remember back when Titanic came out all you heard was My Heart Will go on? Another song I never care to hear again.

One line, as a tag, is not a cover. And leave the guys vocal range alone-how many parents sing out of tune every day to their kids. That's possibly all this was-an inside joke between bandmates that are all a little tired of the little ones around the house singing this incessantly. All fun, no need to rip. Sheesh. :)

Gee -I hate to be redundant but when will Huffy stop being cutisie with newsy-----------you are the worst news gathering whatever in the world. Who else would play 5 seconds of a song the "story" is supposed to be about and devote 45 seconds having some bimbo telling us about it. Or am I missing something?

This is why I love not having cable or reading mainstream news or media unless I choose. I don't even know what the hell this song sounds like. Stop reading mainstream news and music unless you WANT to. Stop just letting them cram useless garbage down your throats.

A great song that should always be belted out but not by using a belt to literaly be beaten to death meaning :death=absence of life!
