The video was previously unavailable in the US due to TV censorship laws. However the band released the uncensored video to mark June 5th’s National Wear Orange Day, also known as National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
The song was inspired by a newspaper article singer Vedder read about Jeremy Wade Delle, a high school student who shot himself in front of his English class.
