Pearl Jam's Anti-War Ballad: Worldwide Suicide

Add ‘way past its prime’ Pearl Jam to the pile of know-it-all musicians griping about the president through song. Their anti-war ballad, Worldwide Suicide, was performed this past weekend on Saturday Night Live! on NBC (I am surprised SNL actually had a live episode – it seems as though it is always a repeat but I assume they need all the time off to come up with truly lame jokes). Pearl Jam, by the way, is one of the headline acts along with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (who are vastly superior in my opinion) at Summer Fest this year.
