Listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Even Flow’ from The Gryphon Ep 1 as Thomas picks Mark up at school

Pearl Jam’s ‘Even Flow‘ was one of the classic indie rock songs played on the soundtrack of the new German fantasy series The Gryphon (Der Greif) this weekend — The Gryphon, Season 1, Episode 1, “Gegen schlechte Zeiten“.

The song was heard as Thomas is outside Mark’s school, hugs him and wishes him Happy Birthday, and then they both drive off together.

It continues playing in the car as Mark is bugging Thomas about coming home to see their mother.

When was ‘Even Flow‘ released?

Pearl Jam’s ‘Even Flow‘ came out in 1992 as the second single from the indie rock band’s smash hit debut studio album Ten.

The track made it to #3 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, and #21 on the Alternative Airplay chart.

Outside the U.S., ‘Even Flow‘ charted at #27 on the UK Singles chart, and on charts in three other countries.

It has since become one of Pearl Jam’s most recognized and most loved songs.

Critics too have lauded the song as one of one of the best rock songs ever released, with several commenting on the standout nature of the song’s chorus.

The ‘Even Flow‘ music video

The music video for Pearl Jam’s ‘Even Flow‘ also became legendary, not as much for the song but because it featured lead singer Eddie Vedder and the band in concert rather than the original, and very expensive music video.

A video that was scrapped soon after the filming as everyone in the band hated it.

As it turns out, the band wasn’t that thrilled with the concert-version of the music video either but, at that point, they just needed something to help promote the song on channels like MTV and VH1.

And that’s what they had.

Listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Even Flow‘ from the new The Gryphon series in that video, and on Spotify below that.

The Gryphon (aka Der Greif) is now streaming via Amazon Prime Video.
