Pearl Jam release uncensored version of 'Jeremy' video for the first time to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day

song and its corresponding Mark Pellington-directed video — which won Video of the Year at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards — detailed the story of a bullied teenager who shot himself in front of his classmates.

In the original, edited 1992 video, the suicide is insinuated, but in the uncensored version that Pearl Jam uploaded Friday, Jeremy — played by actor Trevor Wilson — is shown placing the gun in his mouth. “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,” Pearl Jam said in a statement.

“We can prevent gun deaths whether mass shootings, deaths of despair, law enforcement, or accidental.”, which is now available to purchase with proceeds going toward the band’s Vitalogy Foundation to support organizations working to prevent gun violence in the United States. The back of the shirt originally stated “9 out of 10 kids prefer crayons to guns,” while the “Choices 2020” shirt now reads “10 out of 10 kids prefer crayons to guns.

“The events of this past week have underscored the importance of this issue and remind us that Black Americans are ten times more likely than white Americans to die by gun homicide,” Pearl Jam added.

Absolutely awful music. Horrid.

Lerxst_Alex2 🤔 are you sure its first time? I remember seeing this uncesored video long time ago. It cannot bé a deja vu because its a More elaborate memory

porksweats1 I met Eddie when I was 14. He was barely functioning on a cognitive level.

Eight years before Columbine they censored this video. I wish this would have been released then and jump started the conversation about gun violence before the loss of so many young lives.

When we discussed this video and its themes back in 8th grade, I don’t think any of us thought it would get worse. Bright eyed and bushy-tailed, we thought things would change for the better. Yet here it is. Still relevant.

Odd that falls on D-Day

Suggestion: For the good of all the headline should offer a *warning does contain gun violence and suicide*
