Pearl Jam – Jeremy

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!
