After receiving a letter from the band they’re honoring, a Pearl Jam tribute band is changing their name.
Originally called Pearl Jamm, the tribute received a cease-and-desist order from the Seattle band for the use of their name and merchandise.
The band will now be called “Legal Jam,” to work off of their recent legal issues.

In a statement, the band said, “A name doesn’t define us. We do what we do out of love and respect for Pearl Jam.”
Do you think it’s fair for Pearl Jam to take legal action against the tribute band? Have you ever seen a tribute band that was as good as the real thing?
