Pearl Jam releases unedited version of “Jeremy” video.

Orange was the favorite color of Hadiya Pendleton, who at the age of 15 was shot and killed here in Chicago — a case of mistaken identity.  Orange is the color of safety clothing worn by hunters.  Orange is also the color of National Gun Violence Awareness Day — AKA, National Wear Orange Day.

When Pearl Jam released the video for “Jeremy” back in 1992, the conclusion of the story was edited for TV.  Loudwire shares Pearl Jam’s reasoning behind finally releasing the unedited version after all these years.  We also have it for you below.  [WARNING: The graphic suicide at the end of the edited version was vaguely alluded to; this new version leaves no doubt as to what Jeremy did in front of his classmates.]
