Pearl Jam releases new album same day as Taylor Swift’s TTPD, rock fans ignite meme fest online

Pearl Jam released their 12th studio album, Dark Matter, on Friday, April 19. The American rock band, which was formed in 1990, presently consists of five members- Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron. While the anticipation for the group’s latest album had been brewing for a long time, it appears that its release has been outshined by Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department.

Rock fans turn social media into meme fest as TTPD and Dark Matter release the same day

Following the release of the album, rock fans flocked to social media to express their resentment over Pearl Jam’s album being outshined by Swift’s highly anticipated double album, which consists of 31 tracks in total. One fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “Pearl Jam releasing their best album in years on the same day Taylor Swift releases a surprise double album.”

Another fan wrote, “The real Tortured Poets Department is those of us listening to the new Pearl Jam album and having no one to talk to about it,” to which a fellow Pearl Jam fan replied, “Tell me about it. I wish I knew someone else listening to it too.”

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I
    stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always interesting to read through articles from other writers and
    use a little something from other sites.

  3. My coder is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites
    for about a year and am worried about switching to another
    platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
