8. Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder (Temple of the Dog), "Hunger Strike"
Pearl Jam's early history is so convoluted that it's difficult to properly explain without a powerpoint presentation or at least a series of flowcharts and a laser pointer. Simply stated, some of the members played in the Seattle group Mother Love Bone until their frontman Andrew Wood died of a heroin overdose in 1990. They recruited a young singer named Eddie Vedder and renamed themselves Pearl Jam, and around this exact same time Chris Cornell wrote a series of songs dedicated to Wood. He cut them with Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron and members of Pearl Jam under the name Temple of the Dog. "Hunger Strike" turned into a duet between Cornell and Vedder, though it didn't receive much attention until Pearl Jam blew up a couple years later. Temple of the Dog has reunited at a few Pearl Jam shows, and "Hunger Strike" always gets a huge reaction. It's basically become the grunge "National Anthem."
