Watch Pearl Jam Play Van Halen's

This one comes to us courtesy of the Van Halen News Desk.

Check out this video of Pearl Jam performing a Van Halen medley—"Eruption" into "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love"—in 2013.

The show took place October 25, 2013, at Hartford, Connecticut's XL Center. The band played "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" during a 2010 show at the same venue.

"The last time we played here, in 2010, we played a song and we said it was the only time we would ever play this song," Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder announced to the crowd.

"And it was the only time we ever played this song. But as soon as we walked into the back room tonight. I was, like, 'This is where we played that song! And, for some reason, I just really need to play that song again!' But before we play that song, he's going to play this song."

"He," of course, is guitarist Mike McCready. How do you think he did?
