Eddie Vedder Sings Anti-Gun Song At Pearl Jam Concert


While Pearl Jam covered “Another Brick In The Wall Part 2” by Pink Floyd at Lollapalooza Chile on Friday, Eddie Vedder changed the lyrics at one point to: ‘Gunmen leave our kids alone/People leave your guns at home.’ Watch below.


We reported in October:

Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand, a grassroots army of Everytown working to end gun violence, has shared a new Instagram post from Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s wife Jill.

Jill Vedder wrote, “Moms (and dads) Demand Action #gunsenseinamerica #everytownusa #momsdemandaction #RejectTheNRA.”

Eddie Vedder said in an October 2013 interview with Mark Richards, “The fact that we’re living in a country where 90 percent of the people want further gun laws — to maybe somehow put a dent in some of this insanity that’s happening — and yet there’s no further legislation taking place, it’s very frustrating and upsetting. If I didn’t have music to kind of at least get some of the aggression out or take the edge off, you wouldn’t want me having a gun either.”

“I get so angry that I almost wish bad things upon these people,” Vedder said. “But I don’t have to because it seems like they happen anyways. It seems like every week I’m reading about a 4-year-old either shooting their sister, their dad, their dog, their brother or themselves, because there’s fucking guns laying around. But I guess it’s ‘fun.’”
