Janis Joplin’s posthumously released album Pearl came out 50 years ago today (January 11), and it was an epic send-off to a once-in-a-lifetime singer who left this world all too soon.

Pearl was released about three months after Joplin’s death and would top the Billboard 200 album chart for nine weeks and go on to be certified four-times platinum.

There are so many classic songs from this album, but which one do you think is the best? In honor of the anniversary of Pearl, vote for your favorite song below!
