@Die_Song-Diebin no it's actually correct as it is... the title refers to the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego,_and_super-ego]Freudian concept of 'Id'[/url], not something for Identification... and in fact you could argue that it even should be [track artist=Pearl Jam]I Got Shit[/track]
my fav peral jam song. this song is like the lost Pearl Jam song, you don't hear it any much anymore, but the Merkinball release was in heavy rotation when it came out (this single), and it will forever be nostalgic to me
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Got_Id : Note that the song's name is I Got Id (as in the Freudian concept) and not I Got ID (as in a form of identification), a frequent mistake in labeling the album's songs.
The original intent was to call it I Got Shit for the Merkinball single, but the record company killed that idea (kind of hard to sell a song on radio with a profanity in the title), so they went with I Got ID instead. And it's pronounced id, like the Freudian concept.
All that being said, this song is beautifully depressing, and easily ranks among Pearl Jam's best. I love it.
