“Launching a show like this takes a lot of hard work and one of the things that has sustained me over the past three months was knowing that at the end of our first show I’d get to watch a performance by one of the greatest rock bands in the world,” said new Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien last night.
Pearl Jam performed their furious new song “Get Some” from their upcoming album, now named Backspacer. The band, who are acting without a record label, will release the album through various distribution methods, including a retail deal with Target stores.

Backspacer was also the name of Pearl Jam’s racing turtle in the Great Turtle Race, a charity event for Conservation International. In a surprising twist, Backspacer came in ahead of R.E.M.’s sponsored turtle, Nightswimmer.
