3. VIDEO: Pearl Jam, “Jeremy”
It’s really too bad that Pearl Jam hated making music videos so much because THEY WERE REALLY GOOD AT THEM. In particular, the striking (and still shocking) video for “Jeremy” remains one of the most memorable and powerful videos in the history of the medium. Director Mark Pellington was forced by the Standards & Practices team at MTV to cut one of the climactic shots of the video which showed Jeremy putting a gun in his mouth and pulling the trigger, which led many to incorrectly assume that Jeremy killed his classmates.
