posted by Shannon Steele -

Pearl Jam were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. During bassist Jeff Ament’s acceptance speech, he said, “It’s an honor to be part of a club that includes so many of our heroes—Neil, the Clash, Zeppelin, the Stooges, Cheap Trick—but the fact is that we were affected by bands that aren’t here.” As he said those words, Ament was wearing a shirt featuring the names of every awesome band that’s never been inducted. Pearl Jam shared a photo of the shirt on Instagram—find it below. Among the artists it lists are Brian Eno, Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, Fela Kuti, Kate Bush, Nick Cave, the Replacements, Flaming Lips, Motörhead, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Kraftwerk, Minutemen, Misfits, Slayer, Flipper, Bad Brains, the Smiths, Dinosaur Jr., Neu!, Roxy Music, Elliott Smith, Björk, Soundgarden, and many others. Near the end of the list is Nirvana’s original drummer Chad Channing, who famously did not get inducted with the rest of the band.
