Pearl Jam's Internet Puzzle Game




Pearl Jam are giving fans yet another way to avoid work today.

Their new album, Backspacer, includes artwork by Tom Tomorrow. The band digs it so much, it chopped the cartoon into nine pieces and scattered it across the web for fans to find and then add to an online album.

You can start here.

Once you collect all nine pieces of the puzzle, you'll get a free download. You also get to hear Pearl Jam's new song, "The Fixer," every time you add a piece to the puzzle. (Backspacer comes out on September 20.)

To get you started, we'll give you a clue: One piece is hidden in one of rock's oldest and most venerable magazines. If you know where others are, feel free to share in the comments section. Our readers are all about free stuff. —Michael Gallucci
