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.’”
