On Friday night, during a show in Milan, Pearl Jam, a band who plays a lot of covers, took a pretty extreme left turn, interrupting “Daughter” to briefly cover “Let It Go,” the juggernaut power-ballad from the Disney cartoon Frozen. As it turns out, Eddie Vedder had a very good reason for singing the song: His daughter asked him to do it. Vedder has a five-year-old, and as the father of a five-year-old daughter, I can confirm that we are asked to sing “Let It Go” about every 12 minutes.

As Consequence Of Sound points out, the news comes from a friend of Vedder, the cartoonist Tom Tomorrow, who has written and drawn the leftist alt-weekly comic strip This Modern World for about the last 24 years. Here’s what Tomorrow says on Twitter: “So that clip of Pearl Jam doing the song from Frozen? That was a request — from Eddie Vedder’s five year old daughter. Just got off the phone with Ed and he told me I should tweet that. He also wants everyone to know that his daughter sings it better.”

His daughter couldn’t really sing it worse, you know?

  1. Very touching. The things we do for our fathers

  2. I’m so confused.

  3. As much as I loath the song, this just shows what an awesome Dad Eddie Vedder is.

  4. Not only can you be perceived as anti-semitic, but you can also be seen as one big liar. How come your family tree says that you don’t have any children or marriages at all? ( Keep it real, other wise, please stop your crap about having a family and kids and fix yourself up before you do any judging.
