Pearl Jam Will Provide the Soundtrack to the World Series [SURVEY]
Fox Sports has confirmed a partnership that will make Pearl Jam songs the soundtrack to this year’s World Series, which is scheduled to air October 23 to 31 on Fox.
The deal includes the use of 48 Pearl Jam songs to promote the World Series and also for beds and bumpers during the games. If you plan to watch, you’re definitely going to hear a ton of PJ.
In addition, Fox has named the band Artist of the Month for November, which means you’ll be hearing Pearl Jam songs across all Fox Sports properties throughout the month.
Pearl Jam fans know that lead singer Eddie Vedder is a hard core, lifelong Cubs fan, and that is one of the reasons why the band, who rarely agree to license their music, have signed on for the World Series. Their manager says they considered other factors as well, including if they would like the partnership, if their fans would like it and if it was really something the band could get behind.
Some of the songs confirmed for World Series use are all 12 tracks from Lightning Bolt, “Animal” “Better Man” “Black” “Even Flow” “Corduroy” & “Daughter”. You will begin hearing the songs during the first game of the series tonight on Fox.
