Pearl Jam broke out a ton of covers at their show at Safeco Field in Seattle Wednesday night.

Their main set featured "Throw Your Hatred Down" by Neil Young (which they recorded with Young in 1995), a snippet of "Help" by The Beatles leading into their own "Help Help" (from 2002's Riot Act) and "I Am a Patriot" by Steve Van Zandt.

Eddie Vedder came out by himself at the start of the encore and dedicated a cover of "We're Going to Be Friends" by The White Stripes to the band's families and his friend Jack White.

Pearl Jam is playing in their hometown for the first time in half a decade as the last of the band's two long-awaited Home Shows takes place tonight.  They took the stage for a sold out show at Safeco Field for the first show on Wednesday.  But the Home Shows aren't just about the music, the band is helping to raise millions to reduce homelessness in the region.  A statement on the official Pearl Jam website says more than 12-thousand people are on the streets in the Seattle area on any given night, making it the third largest homeless population in the country.
