If there's one thing Pearl Jam and grunge music as a whole knew how to do, it was how to make a point with music videos.
You only needed to look at the likes of Nirvana's 'Heart-Shaped Box', Alice In Chains' 'Rooster', or the music video for Pearl Jam's 'Jeremy' to get an idea of what their music videos were capable. In fact, the music video for 'Jeremy' was censored for 28 years by MTV due to its content.
The music video was, originally, unambiguously about gun violence, fascism, and teenage suicide, however the intervening years saw the video edited and then removed from rotation due to subsequent school shootings in the US.
For the first time in almost three decades, the uncensored music video for 'Jeremy' is available online, with Pearl Jam uploading the music video to their official channel earlier this week to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day in the US.
In an Instagram post with the video, the band stated that "the increase in gun violence since the debut of 'Jeremy' is staggering." The music video itself was nominated for and won several awards, including Video of the Year at the VMAs in 1993.
Here's the video.
