Pearl Jam, Everclear, and No Doubt


Almost everyone has a favorite band. People buy CD\'s and tapes to not
only listen to the music that they like, but to support that band. There are
many, many different types of music, and usually a certain band will fit into a
specific type of music. I listen mostly to alternative/grunge music. And by
coincidence the three bands I\'m going to talk about are all from the west coast.
I am going to talk a little bit about three of my favorite bands in that
category: Pearl Jam, Everclear, and No Doubt.
Pearl Jam is a band from Seattle. They were one of the first alternative
bands to ever become popular from this area. The lead singer of Pearl Jam is
Eddie Vedder, he does the lead vocals and plays the guitar. The rest of the band
includes, Jeff Ament, (bass) Stone Gossard, (guitar and vocals) Jack Irons,
(drums) and Mike McCready, (guitar). A couple of the songs that Pearl Jam does
are Jeremy, Daughter, Smile, Spin the Black Circle and Tremor Christ. Pearl Jam
has a knack for writing catchy lyrics that become very popular.
Everclear is a band from Portland. They are not as popular as Pearl Jam,
but they do have a large following of fans. The three band members of Everclear
are Art Alexis, (lead vocals, and guitar) Greg Eklund, (drums and vocals) and
Craig Montoya, (bass, and vocals). Their album together is Sparkle and Fade, and
it is one of the best albums I\'ve ever heard. Among the may popular songs are
Heroin Girl, Sparkle and Fade, and Santa Monica. All of the lyrics are good, but
there is a lot of profanity on this album.
No Doubt is the last band, but is not the least. No Doubt has had a
number one album, Tragic Kingdom, and it is VERY popular. This band is out of
California. The band members are: Gwen Stefani, (lead vocals) Tom Dumont,
(guitar) Tony Kanal, (bass) Adrian Young, (drums and percussion) and Eric
Stefani (piano and keyboards) Gwen, the lead singer is the only female in this
band, and hers is the only voice you hear in all of the songs. Some of their
songs includes, Just a Girl, Spider Webs, and Excuse Me Mister. All are popular
and make an awesome album with all of the songs on it.
These bands all are popular here in the Northwest and all have popular
albums out. People have shown their support of these bands by buying their
albums and requesting their favorite songs on the radio. Pearl Jam, Everclear,
and No Doubt are among my very favorite bands, and I own all of their albums.
