When Eddie Vedder eavesdropped in on a Temple of the Dog rehearsal, he was taken by the tune "Hunger Strike," with its lyrics about a modern-day Robin Hood. But it was a unique vocal idea that Vedder had that was the song's missing ingredient. "I was sitting in the corner, putting duct tape on a little African drum," Vedder recalled. "About two-thirds of the way through, [Chris Cornell] was having to cut off the one line, and start the other. I'm not now, and certainly wasn't then, self-assured or cocky, but I could hear what he was trying to do, so I walked up to the mic -- which I'm really surprised I did -- and sang that other part, 'Going hungry, going hungry.'" Pearl Jam has performed the song onstage sporadically -- whenever Cornell guests.
