Pearl Jam release uncensored version of 'Jeremy' video for first time ever

Vids 07/06/2020

Pearl Jam have released the uncensored version of their music video for 'Jeremy' for the first time to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day.

The original 1992 video, which won Video Of The Year at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards, details the story of a bullied boy who shot himself in front of his classmates.

The death in the video is not shown, but insinuated - but the uncensored video shows the boy putting the gun in his mouth.

In a statement released by the band:

The increase in gun violence since the debut of ‘Jeremy’ is staggering. We have released the uncensored version of the video which was unavailable in 1992 with TV censorship laws.

We can prevent gun deaths whether mass shootings, deaths of despair, law enforcement, or accidental.

Watch above.
