56. Pearl Jam - Black

Found On: Ten (1993)

Amid a series of arena rock anthems, this song stands out on Ten as the one with the most emotion poured into Eddie Vedder’s tortured vocal. When the song finally climbs to the final verse, it’s pure agony: “I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life, I know you’ll be a sun in somebody else’s sky, but why, why, why can’t it be, why can’t it be mine?” - RN

Black was 1991. Vitalogy came out in 1993.
