Here’s the uncensored version of “Jeremy” I was talking about on air.

The story of a bullied teenager who shot himself in front of his classmates, Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” won Video of the Year at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards. Pearl Jam released the uncensored version of the video for National Gun Violence Awareness Day. In a statement, the band said “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.”
