Temple of the Dog's "Hunger Strike," while always vital, is at its most relevant during Thanksgiving weekend. You can take the last crescent roll, even from a relative's plate, and as long as you sing "I don't mind stealing bread" in a grave voice while doing so, everyone will say "haha well played man that sure takes me back to the golden days of grunge." Also, if you're asked to "say grace," here's a tip my friend Kevin told me: look really serious and then bellow in your best baritone "Turkey's on the table/and so is the stuffing!" Fortunately, it's not too late to do these cool things and also pass around the Hunger Strike memes that follow, because families get together for Christmas food, too!

with UHF recently released Weird Al was at his maximum power. Vedder and Cornell knew they had to make an incredibly poignant critique of the upper class so Al would agree with the sentiment and not parody their song.

the best scene in the music video is wehen you realize eddie and chris arent actually lost in separate forests and cornfields. they were actually going there to spread the word about hunger. they got lost on purpose for rock n roll and then they reunite at the end to say more shit about the cup and the slaves

manyak

lets all say which guys we are from the vid.. firstly im a total chris cornel (going hungry anyone?), but in another way im the guy dressed as Blossom with a purple hat and jacket doing guitar flourishes and spinning the guitar around while the other guys yell about being hungry
