Eddie Vedder was first invited onto "Letterman" back in 1996. The fresh-faced musician draped in black belted out the lyrics to "Black" off the 1991 album "Ten" as the in-studio audience went nuts.

For Vedder's last "farewell" performance, the late-night regular teamed up with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra -- just like back in 1996 -- for a rendition of Pearl Jam’s “Better Man.”
