FUEL TV & Legacy Recordings Team Up to Let You Make the Music Video for Pearl Jam’s “Porch”
Win a Spot in the Extreme Sports Video for “Porch,” From Pearl Jam’s Famed Debut Ten, Out Now in 4 Newly Remixed Special Editions

Action sports network FUEL TV is partnering up with Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings to give their fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to appear in the unique fan-created music video for Pearl Jam’s “Porch,” from the band’s iconic debut album Ten.
To enter, fans must submit the best action sports clip of themselves they have – skateboarding, surfing, BMX – anything goes. If it’s awesome, we want to see it. Entry is closed on July 18th, so get working on it! Winners will have their clip featured in the video next to pros such as Nolan Lee, Chris Martin and Brad Harper, as well as Pearl Jam. Go to FUEL.TV/pearljam to enter.

Following the entry window, the public will have a chance to vote on the clips at FUEL.TV/pearljam. The top ten videos will make the cut. The video will premiere ON-AIR on FUEL TV’s “The Daily Habit” this coming August! In addition to having their clips featured in the music video for “Porch,” one grand prize winner will also receive a full band copy of Rock Band for Xbox 360 and a Super Deluxe Edition of Ten. Ten runners up will receive a copy of Rock Band (disc only) for the Xbox 360 and the Legacy Edition of Ten.

The newly reissued version of Ten is in stores now, and each of the 4 special editions include both the remastered version of the original album, as well as an accompanying version that has been remixed by the band’s longtime producer Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, Audioslave). Ten was just released as DLC for Rock Band for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Additionally, fans can preview tracks from the release by playing the web-based Pearl Jam Ten Game at
