Pearl Jam Release Uncensored 'Jeremy' Video was a top 20 story of June 2020: Pearl Jam are streaming an uncensored version of their iconic "Jeremy" music video. The track comes from the band's blockbuster 1991 album "Ten".
The Mark Pellington-directed video stars actor Trevor Wilson as the title character and was reportedly based on a real-life incident in early 1991 where a high school student named Jeremy Wade Delle shot himself in front of his classmates.
The original version of the video, which showed Wilson placing a gun in his mouth, was allegedly banned by video outlets like MTV due to their policy of censoring music videos with scenes depicting guns and violence.
The band had this to say, "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 the video below:
