Pearl Jam – Jeremy

Posted in 1991, Eddie Vedder, Grunge Rock, MTV Video Award Winner, Pearl Jam, Seattle Bands on June 28, 2007 by pelicancup

In addition to Alive and Evenflow, Jeremy was another huge hit off Pearl Jam’s 1991 debut album, Ten. This video and song covered a much more serious and deeper subject (teenage suicide) than their other songs, and it was inspired by the true story of Jeremy Wade Delle from Richardson, Texas who shot himself in front of his English class in Richardson High School on the morning of January 8, 1991 at about 9:45am. Delle was described by schoolmates as “real quiet” and known for “acting sad.” After coming in late to class that morning, Delle was told to get an admittance slip from the school office. He left the classroom, and returned with a .357 Magnum revolver. Delle walked to the front of the classroom, announced “Miss, I got what I really went for”, put the barrel of the firearm in his mouth, and pulled the trigger before his teacher or classmates could react.

The video won four MTV Video Music Awards including Best Video of the Year. Enjoy!

Guns N’ Roses – Don’t Cry

Posted in 1991, Axl Rose, Guns N' Roses, Heavy Metal, Izzy Stradlin, MTV Video Award Winner, Shannon Hoon, Slash on June 21, 2007 by pelicancup

This is an interesting video. It’s much more dramatic that most of the Guns N’ Roses videos before it. Some things to notice in the video. The song was co-written by guitarist Izzy Stradlin, but he failed to show up for the taping, so you’ll see Axl holding a poster at one point that says, “Where’s Izzy?”. Also, at one point, Axl is wearing a St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap, which is his way of poking fun at the city where he jumped into the crowd at a concert and attacked a fan and incited a riot.

The late Shannon Hoon (Blind Melon’s lead singer) was featured in the video and sang back-up on a lot of the songs from Guns N’ Roses’ Use You Illusion I and II CD’s. Finally, you’ll recognize his wife in real life, Stephanie Seymore, in the video as well. Enjoy!

Van Halen – Poundcake

Posted in #1 Mainstream Rock Charts, 1991, Arena Rock, Glam Rock, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen on June 18, 2007 by pelicancup

Poundcake is the opening track on Van Halen’s 1991 album, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It reached #1 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts. The album was named For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge because Sammy was mis-informed by his good friend Boom Boom Mancini who told him that F*ck meant For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It doesn’t, but 1991 was when censorship was such a big deal, and Sammy wanted to make a statement. Enjoy the video!
