The 10 Most Inspiring Eddie Vedder Quotes

Eddie Vedder, who is the lead vocalist of Pearl Jam, was one of the main faces of the rock and roll grunge movement and punk era. Pearl Jam, alongside many other Seattle based bands such as Nirvana, created a brand new culture of music that dove into the deeper issues that teenagers and young adults of generation x faced such as depression and suicide. Eddie gave Pearl Jam a very distinct raspy voice and together they rocked a powerful genre of music that gave millions of fans meaning and relatability along with chill giving themes.

Growing up, Eddie was always passionate about music and he initially used it as an escape mechanism when his anger boiled up from finding out his step dad was not his biological father. Upon his parents’ divorce his mother opened the home for several foster children. Perhaps this experience helped ignite Vedder to later become a well noted philanthropist.

As an activist, he raised funds and spread awareness for a childhood skin disorder and he would also help with the release of the West Memphis Three from prison.

This is the top 10 list of the most inspiring Eddie Vedder quotes ever about finding his solace through music and surfing, the power of change, and feeling deserving of goodness.

Dave Grohl quotes


“If you trust me at all, if you want to listen to me at all..but you certainly don’t have to…speaking from experience, I can tell you that things change. You can believe me, you don’t have to. They probably won’t change unless you make them. The best way to change something that’s around you, something you don’t like, is to change yourself. And I don’t think you want other people changing you, I think the only person that can change you is yourself. So if you ain’t happy, if you’re reading magazines about generation x-ers and thinking ‘yeah, I’m one of them’, well fuck that. Don’t let anyone tell you who you are. No, no. No one can tell me who I am. I can tell you who I am, but that would be a long story. I could tell you who I am and it wouldn’t fit in a Rolling Stone. It wouldn’t fit in a video…it’s my life, it’s your life. You’re the only one who knows who you are. I hope you know who you are, figure it out. Cause you are somebody. And I’m probably stating the obvious, but I just thought I’d do it anyway. So if you feel like you’ve got a piece of duct tape on your mouth, if you feel like you can’t speak, take it off, speak up, speak your mind, shout it out,let em hear, shout it out.” – Eddie Vedder



“Music saved me; I mean, my upbringing was like a hurricane, and music was the tree I held onto.– Eddie Vedder
