In 1991, Van Halen released their album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. Right Now was one of the defining songs for Van Halen during the Sammy Hagar years. It was used in the Crystal Pepsi commercials, and it was played before tipoff at each Chicago Bulls basketball game during their heyday in the early 90’s.

This music video won three awards at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, including the award for Video of the Year. Sadly, producer Carolyn Beug was killed on September 11, 2001 as a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11 en route to Los Angeles from Boston.

November Rain by Guns N’ Roses is one of my favorite songs by the band. It’s also a great video featuring Axl’s then-girlfriend, Stephanie Seymour. It’s one of the most expensive music videos ever made coming in at over $1.5 million and it won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography. It’s from their 1991 album, Use Your Illusion I.

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!
