This song is about vinyl records. Pearl Jam felt they were a great way to listen to music. They are imperfect, but the cracks and sizzles on the records give the songs character not found on CDs, which play the same way every time.
Pearl Jam released the album on vinyl 2 weeks before it came out on CD.
In 1996, this won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance. It is the only Grammy Pearl Jam has won.
The entire music video is just a filming of a record player spinning.
