However, despite huge success for all the bands listed, Pearl Jam’s debut album, Ten, outsold them all, reaching platinum record sales 13 times over. Tackling difficult subjects such a depression and suicide, Vedder’s lyrics touched the otherwise disenfranchised youth of Generation X, connecting people through music in a way that had not felt possible by other genres of the time. Born in Illinois but raised mostly in California, Vedder’s first band, Bad Radio, although successful in his hometown of San Diego, never reached a larger audience. It wasn’t until ex drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack Irons, connected him to the other members of the band in 1990, that Pearl Jam became a possibility.

Joseph “Joe” Gatto, James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, and Salvatore “Sal” Vulcano are collectively known as the The Tenderloins, the quartet rose to fame on the reality TV programme, Impractical Jokers. Premiering on TruTV in December 2011, the hidden camera series sees the friends coerce one another into doing public pranks. It quickly set itself apart from its contemporaries by filling the show with clever humour rather than slapstick or crude comedy. Recent pranks have seen members of The Tenderloins fall instantly head-over-heels for a stranger, make some unusual suggestions in a city planning meeting, and attempt to gift-wrap shoppers’ groceries in a supermarket. In early 2018, TruTV announced the renewal of Impractical Jokers, taking it into its eighth season. The 26 brand new episodes are set to be aired from February 2019, with a feature-length film also in the works. The Tenderloins have announced that they’ll be returning to the UK in October 2019 with a brand new show. Their live shows see the four-piece bring their improv and comedy experiences to stages across the UK, blended with footage and associated stories from the hit TV show.
