Pearl Jam and the audio samples used in their most experimental song

After almost 30 years, we found the audio samples used by Eddie Vedder on Pearl Jam’s experimental track Hey Foxymophandlemama, That’s Me.

Hey Foxymophandlemama, That’s Me, also known as Stupid Mop, is the fourteenth song from Pearl Jam’s third album, Vitalogy, recorded by Pearl Jam with Jack Irons and composed with voices of psychiatric hospitals.

I had taped something off the TV when I was maybe 17 or something and I think it was people who had mental problems who were being let out of the hospitals early because the states were taking away funding for mental hospitals, so they were sending these folks out without the necessary care, but it was still very intriguing the way their minds worked and what they would say, and we experimented and tried to incorporate it into, what to date, is our most emotional and moving song.“. – Eddie Vedder
