New Jersey's Gaslight Anthem paid tribute to one of their favorite bands when recording a session for iTunes. "I think Pearl Jam is the best rock band of my generation, and to have one of their songs be played by my own band is an honor for me," says frontman Brian Fallon. "We chose 'State' because it's the song we felt that could've been a Gaslight song had we had the gift of that song come to us. It's a great song about staying faithful." You can pre-order Gaslight Anthem's iTunes session, planned for a December 13th release, here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
