Artists dissing each other is not only saved for hip-hop as Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder recently shared his thoughts on the 80’s hair-metal scene which did not go down well with the singer-songwriter and bassist of Motley Crue band-Nikki Sixx. Eddie Vedder in one of his recent interviews singled out Motley Crue whilst talking about how "vacuous" he found the eighties hair metal scene.
Reacting to Eddie Vedder’s blunt comments on the metal scene of the ’80s, Nikki Sixx decided to take the matter into his own hands as he logged into Twitter to call out the Pearl Jam crooner. In his tweet, he dubbed Pearl Jam as “one of the most boring bands in history” which soon led to chaos on the micro-blogging site. The loyal fans of Pearl Jam flocked to the social media platform to slam Motley Crue and Nikki Six while reminding him why Pearl Jam was one of the most iconic bands.

In his recent interview with The New York Times, Eddie Vedder recalled working at a club in San Diego, where he helped load in bands’ gear. Speaking on the same, the 57-year-old singer said, “I’d end up being at shows that I wouldn’t have chosen to go to – bands that monopolised late 80’s MTV.” He added, “The metal bands that – I’m trying to be nice – I despised. ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and Mötley Crüe you. I hated it. I hated how it made the fellas look. I hated how it made the women look. It felt so vacuous.”

Nikki Six, who courted several controversies in the past, reverted to the diss and tweeted, “Made me laugh today reading how much the singer in Pearl Jam hated @MotleyCrue. Now considering that they’re one of the most boring bands in history it’s kind of a compliment isn’t it?#TheStadiumTour #RocknRoll”  Motley Crue was in headlines in December 2021 when they reportedly sold their entire recording catalogue to BMG for approximately $150million. The band is set to commence their Stadium Tour in June, their first major tour since 2015.




‘All Motley Crue has ever done is give domestic abusers’

The loyal fans of Pearl Jam thronged to Twitter while trolling Nikki Sixx for his latest comment. “Pearl Jam was a band with revolutionary stances on societal issues, Eddie wrote Pro-Choice on his arm during Unplugged, not to mention all of the work they did for women rights. All Motley Crue has ever done is give domestic abusers a soundtrack to listen too”, said one music lover as another warned “i don't tolerate pearl jam slander.” The next one stated, “For Pearl Jam to be so boring, they sure did help to put an end to your hair-metal fun.”
Whereas, one user tweeted, “Pearl Jam don’t need to do “four for the price of one” tours. Pearl Jam have a loyal and global fan base. Pearl Jam are not boring. Pearl Jam didn’t break up, retire, sign a contract saying they were done, blow up said contract… make up your minds!! You’re over. Pearl Jam rule.” Another said, “Nikki Sixx calling Pearl Jam one of the most boring bands in history, when they regularly sell out stadiums with no supporting bands, while Motley Crue can't do the same is hilarious.” Meanwhile, one user concluded while sharing a picture of Eddie Vedder, “I love both Motley Crue and Pearl Jam, but if it becomes a competition between Eddie Vedder  and Nikki Sixx, the Cubs fan and superior musician gets my support.”
