It was certainly a lot of fun while it lasted, but Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’s week-long tribute to Pink Floyd ended last night. It was quite the send-off, though, as Pearl Jam chose to cover “Mother” off the band’s 1979 album, The Wall. As you might expect, Eddie Vedder and company do the song justice, from its varied instrumentation and time signatures to the gripping vocals. The performance leaves us wondering when another seminal, forward-thinking outfit’s expansive catalog will be celebrated on late-night TV. Also, which band will it be? Zeppelin? Zappa? Beatles? Beach Boys? Doors?
Watch the performance below.
