9. Pearl Jam - 'Rockin' in the Free World'
Pearl Jam began playing Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" in early 1992, and it's remained a regular part of their setlist ever since, often as part of their encore. Eddie Vedder has often cited Neil Young as one of his greatest influences, and they struck up a close friendship in the mid-1990s that resulted in the Pearl Jam/Neil Young collaborative album Mirror Ball. They toured Europe together on a double bill where Pearl Jam served as Young's backing band. Sadly, it never came to America.
