Pearl Jam - Jeremy (uncensored version)

Official video for ‘Jeremy’ by Pearl Jam REMASTERED IN HD! Don't see the video in HD? Here are instructions on how to update video quality settings on YouTube:

Originally released in 1992, the Jeremy video brought attention to gun violence, teen suicide, and violence in schools. The original uncensored video, previously unreleased, is being shown here for essentially the first time. The themes of Jeremy highlighted by Pearl Jam in 1991, have sadly only become more relevant in the intervening 30 years as gun deaths continue to increase.

Pearl Jam continues its activism to reduce gun violence. You can support their efforts through re-released Choices merchandise and by donating to VitalogyFoundation:

all those people who say that “school is the best time of your life!” Um, no it’s not. Never did I feel so restricted and restrained and powerless as while I was in school as a kid. How many Jeremy’s are there that “spoke in class today” that we don’t hear about because they just couldn’t handle it anymore and no one wanted to listen to “just some kid having a bad time”. It’s a sobering thought.

i never realized the reason he says “try to forget this” and “try to erase this” is because in the actual school where jeremy died, you’re not allowed to talk about him there.

My Father grew up with Jeremy. They went trick or treating together, church together and would have playdates together. My father said Jeremy was a little bit different from the other kids in the sense that he didn't really hang out with them as much but, my dad said he was extremely good at drawing and was a good person. They never expected this would happen.

This song has much more impact with the uncensored videoclip.
Eddie Vedder: Still alive, still alive. You have to be realistic ... Most of you won't get this comment, but the few who do, well, you'r special and you know it.
After 27 yrs of silence, Jeremy Delle's mother broke it in 2018.
"That day that he died did not define his life," she said. 
 "He was a son, a brother, a nephew, a cousin, a grandson. He was a friend. He was talented." Delle was a budding artist prior to his passing. “He won first prize at the Texas State Fair,” Crane said. “He won best of shows, and this was all before he was 12 years old.”

I'm a teacher and I really love this song. Whenever I have troubling students, I always think of Jeremy.
We can learn from his story.
Out of all the crap he had to go through, the straw that broke the camels back was his teacher asking him to get a slip. I always remember that and I always give the kids a break. We dont know what's going on at home, so we should give them a break. School is not supposed to be a prison.

A few years ago, Lara Tolosa, a girl here in Argentina also shot herself in class due to the extreme bullying and today is the 3rd anniversary of her death. Rest in peace Lara and Jeremy, now two angels in the heaven :( ❤️

[Verse 1]
At home drawin' pictures of mountain tops
With him on top, lemon yellow sun
Arms raised in a "V"
And the dead lay in pools of maroon below

Daddy didn't give attention
Oh, to the fact that mommy didn't care
King Jeremy the wicked
Oh, ruled his world

Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today

[Verse 2]
Clearly, I remember picking on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
Ooh, but we unleashed a lion
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady's breast
How could I forget? And he hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurting, ooh, dropped wide open
Just like the day, oh, like the day I heard

Daddy didn't give affection, no
And the boy was something that mommy wouldn't wear
King Jeremy the wicked
Oh, ruled his world

Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today

Try to forget this (Try to forget this)
Try to erase this (Try to erase this)
From the blackboard

Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in class today
Jeremy spoke in, spoke in
Jeremy spoke in, spoke in
Jeremy spoke in class today

(Spoke in, spoke in)
(Spoke in, Spoke in, spoke in, spoke in...)
(Spoke in, spoke in)
Ooh oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Ooh oh, oh (Spoke in...)

"Jeremy" is based on Jeremy Wade Delle, a fifteen year old who shot himself in front of his second-period English class with a .357 magnum
Why this video doesn't have over 1 billion views if it's more relevant than "Smells like teen spirit"?
This song is a masterpiece.

This song is really caring for children, and instructing parents to never ever create a silence vacuum with your children's thoughts.

"It came from a small paragraph in a paper which means you kill yourself and you make a big old sacrifice and try to get your revenge. That all you’re gonna end up with is a paragraph in a newspaper. Sixty-three degrees and cloudy in a suburban neighborhood. That’s the beginning of the video and that’s the same thing is that in the end, it does nothing… nothing changes. The world goes on and you’re gone. The best revenge is to live on and prove yourself. Be stronger than those people. And then you can come back."

This song is a reason why you should never bully anyone because you don’t know what will happen because of your actions, and then you’ll feel guilty.

naked chicken chanupa:
They cut a scene where there was a revolver in his mouth but they should have added it in so that people wouldnt think it was a school shooting
The fact that every few years we get songs like “ Jeremy”, “ Don’t let me get me” and “ Pump up kicks “ says something about bullying......doesn’t it?
This song means more now than ever.
"Try to erase this from the blackboard" so many quotes in this song but that one sticks the most. No pun intended.
To all “Jeremys” going through what Jeremy Delle was feeling, please know it does get better, and there are people who want and need you here, regardless of what you think, we all want you here and will help you through it. Please comment back if you need help, or resources for mental health, or just to talk privately. You all will see better days, I’ve been Jeremy before, so please know my empathy is true. Love you all and be kind to everyone, you never know what someone’s going through.

So much comments are acting like Jeremy killed his class mates. Jeremy did not shoot up his class. He only killed himself.

Never thought id ever see the uncensored version released and I'm glad it is i consider this to be one of the most powerful and heartbreaking music videos ever filmed having it censored completley ruined the impact that final moment is supposed to have we need to help kids like Jeremy who didn't have any rest in peace to him

I cannot believe that this is the first time I have seen this version of the "Jeremy" music clip with Jeremy placing the revolver in his mouth - I have only seen the one where his shoulder slumps down as he pulls the revolver out of his pants. I have literally watched/listened to this song hundreds of times and have only just seen the unedited version after fourteen years.

Thank you posting this emotional, powerful, and brilliant music video, and what a great performance by the young Trevor Wilson (rest in peace).

i like how the camera panned from Eddie's smiling face with soft voice in 0:55 to Eddie's grin face with screaming voice in 0:57 , it is showing different character and emotion in one shot

this song still hurts my spirit. it’s beautiful but tragic.

GUY on YouTube:
I wanna say something. I was Jeremy. I had the same thoughts and nearly did the same thing as Jeremy when I was in high school. No one ever talked to me and I hated myself so much that I cant possibly put it into words. I would sit alone and be ignored or passive aggressively bullied. I thought I was some sort of weirdo or burden on society. I still feel that way sometimes. I just want to say to the "jeremys" out there in high school that we still care. I still care. I love you and know exactly what you're feeling, because I was you. I do care and want you to make it through this. Please just fight this if you can. I know it's hard. Just know that I am with you and I am on your side. It's not easy, but surviving is worth it.

RIP Jeremy and all the others who lost their battle. We will remember you and we miss you.

Since people are saying the don't know the back story of this song here it is

On January 8, 1991, Jeremy Delle, a 15-year-old sophomore, died by suicide with a Smith & Wesson model 19-4 .357 magnum revolver in front of his second-period English class. Delle was described by peers as "real quiet" and known for "acting sad". Delle was tardy that morning, and after going to his second-period class he was told to get an admittance slip from the school office for arriving late. Delle left the classroom, but instead of going to the school office he went to his locker where he had the revolver concealed, and returned to the classroom with it in his possession. Delle walked to the front of the classroom, and announced "Miss, I got what I really went for", he then put the barrel of the firearm in his mouth, and pulled the trigger before his teacher or classmates could react. Lisa Moore, a schoolmate, knew Jeremy from the in-school suspension program: "He and I would pass notes back and forth and he would talk about life and stuff", she said. "He signed all of his notes, "Write back." But on Monday January. 7th he wrote, "Later days." I didn't know what to make of it. But I never thought this would happen."  The incident inspired the Pearl jam song "Jeremy". The band's lead singer, Eddie Vedder, read a newspaper account of the incident and was moved to write the song almost immediately

Eddie Vedder, is a socially conscious person...who really cares about people and societal issues...if only...we had more like him
I was a kid when this came out. I remember how powerful it was then. It is so sad that it is still relevant today, maybe even more so than before..
