“Let It Go” isn’t just a song from a Disney movie – it’s a flat-out cultural phenomenon. The Oscar-winning ‘Frozen‘ song has had everyone singing along (in the car, in the shower, in the kitchen) for months, but now even the professionals are getting into the act. Over the weekend, rock superstars Pearl Jam performed in Milan, Italy and busted out their rendition of the new Disney classic.
You might think it an odd fit for the Seattle quintet to cover a Disney song, but this isn’t the same grunge-era Pearl Jam. Lead singer Eddie Vedder has two young daughters, and as any father of two young daughters can attest, you’re going to get “Let It Go” stuck in your head and you’re going to start singing it, whether you realize it or not.
As is customary during Pearl Jam live shows, the band will segue into another off-catalog song during the coda to their 1993 hit “Daughter.” On June 20, they launched into their own version of “Let It Go” to the surprise of the Italian crowd. It’s a different take than what
Adele Dazeem Idina Menzel sang in ‘Frozen’ but it’s very Pearl Jam-y, whatever that means.
Take a listen above and let us know what you think. One of the better “Let It Go” covers or one best forgotten?
