Today we take a look at why the alternative rock band Pearl Jam suddenly stopped making music videos following the monumental success of their 1991 debut record Ten which sold over 10 million copies. The band would follow up the album with 1993's Vs. and 1994's Vitalogy. It was a difficult time for the band since they were dealing with the tragedy of being rockstars and embroiled in a huge fight with Ticketmaster.

What’s going on my fellow rock n’ rollers don’t forget to hit the bell notification icon to be informed everytime i upload a new video to my channel. So let’s get started with today’s story. Now perhaps One of the strangest things to happened in the early 90’s was that the alternative rock band Pearl Jam just suddenly stopped making music videos. Their debut album 1991’s Ten was a massive success selling over 10 million copies. To promote the record the band released 3 music videos for the singles Even Flow, Alive and of most notably Jeremy. They also did a video for Oceans but that sometimes gets glossed over. Now Even Flow and Alive were live performance shots, while Jeremy was the band’s first concept video and it would prove to be highly controversial. It would also spell the end of the band making music videos for 7 years. Now the first video Pearl Jam did for Ten was for the single Alive. Originally MTV was only playing the song on their program Headbangers Ball.
It was also headbangers ball who did the first ever interview with Pearl Jam on MTV. According to a fellow named Mark Reiter who was the product manager for Pearl Jam at Epic Records. He would claim the band would have a hard time appearing on headbangers ball because as he would state” they just didn’t think of themselves aligned with that kind of music.” And Up until that point in the show’s history headbangers ball focused heavily on metal bands and since the Seattle scene was something that was new not a lot of people didn’t know where it would belong on the network when it first sprouted up... The video for Alive would be shot at the Off Rap in Seattle using a friend of the band named Josh Taft to direct. The next video the band would shoot would be for the single Even Flow which was shot at Griffith park zoo in los angeles and the director was a guy named Rocky Schneck who you might be familiar with ss he had also worked with Alice in Chains, but the original Even Flow video never ended up seeing the day of light and the band would waste $40,000 after not being happy with the edit. The band would go back to their friend Josh Taft who shot another live performance vidoe. And this now brings us to the now infamous jeremy video.
According to mark Reiter, pearl jam had sent him the names of 5 directors that the band wanted to work with.on the Jeremy video, But Reiter would send the reel of a 6th director who they hadn’t listed and that would be Mark Pellington. Up until that point Pellington had worked with rap group Public Enemy and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder would tell the director the story behind the song with Pellington remembering to author Mark Yarm. “He told me the story of jeremy the real story of the kid. “He didn’t say what they were looking for other than the band didn’t need to be performing in it, which was good because i don’t like shooting drummers. Jeremy’s video concept was based on the true story of a boy named Jeremy Dell who was 16 when he brought a gun to his school and took his own life in front of classmates who bullied him at Richardson High School in Texas in january of 1991. Of course the video pearl jam had shot was highly controversial and MTV censors wanted numerous changes to the original edit. And Mark Reiter of Epic Records explained the problem MTV had with the video telling author mark yarm. In the initial video the kid who played Jeremy put it in his mouth and pulled the trigger. The band wanted it in, pellington wanted it in and for 5 days I went back and forth with pellington and mtv. MTV would come back to the label and the band and their management and claimed they liked the video but took a hardline stance against the kid putting the gun in his mouth and pulling the trigger.
And At the 1992 MTV video awards on MTV Pearl Jam would play the show and they originally planned to do a cover of the Dead Boys song Sonic reducer but the executives at MTV pushed the band to play Jeremy so they gave in once again. In the following night Pearl Jam would play the premiere party for Cameron Crowe’s movie single. And According to Kevin Backer who was the head of promotions for Epic Records he was at the singles premiere party but also said that Eddie Vedder was smashed beyond belief and took
PJ stopped doing videos in order to show everyone how much cred they had. But of course when you have to take measures to show everyone how much cred you have......it means you don't really have much. They should've concentrated more on making great rock n roll albums (YEILD was the last quality PJ album) instead of acting like victims of the success they actually craved. There's video footage of 'ol Ed practically pissing on himself with joy when TEN blew up. Make no mistake, he was overjoyed. Then when Kurt publicly called them out Ed got worried and started to pretend he was above it all. Now he lives in the most expensive exclusive part of Hawaii with his ex-model wife. Ed is such a punk rocker.
Have you eat melted butter in the microwave? That's how pearl jam makes me feel
very valid reason. being misunderstood is exhaustingly annoying. one of the easiest ways of coping is to just detach and separate ones self from the misjudgment by dismissing all criticism, good or bad, as ineffectual. this serves as an offensive defense and comes with its own adverse effects. there really is no winning. it's a lose-lose.
when you play for the Corp, the Corp owns you, do your videos for you not the Corp
The irony I think is the fact they came back in 98 when music videos on the whole were on the deep decline.
Considering what happened with Jeremy though I respect their decision to take a long break from it.
