Well the beauty of many PJ songs, like many U2 songs is that while they may have been written about something, but their lyrics leave enough open to be applied to many things, while those specific lines do refer to the Rokslide incident, the message of the song can still be broad.
I completely agree...that's the beauty of so many PJ songs, their ambiguity. This is the band that brought you Yellow Ledbetter, after all! It's actually rare for them to write about a specific, documented event like those lines in LBC.

As far as I Am Mine and 9/11, I can certainly see that connection...it's the impression I had as soon as I heard it. The "official" story, however, is that it was written before 9/11, in a hotel room before PJ's first return to performing since Roskilde.

The ambiguity is supported by them, it's why they don't make many music videos...and when they do they're along the lines of "Life Wasted"...not going to ruin your interpretation, just might turn your stomach along the way

Bumping, not enough love going on for this track around here, even given the PJ fandom here, those of you who ignored "Riot Act" have to check out tracks like this, "I am Mine", etc.

Well, thankfully those who have the compilation rearviewmirror will know I Am Mine and Save You. But I guess Love Boat Captain could be very underrated.

Most of Pearl Jam from 1994-2006 is quite under-rated.
