New Pearl Jam “Mind Your Manners” Video

Something has happened that has rarely occurred over the last two decades. Pearl Jam, the critically acclaimed band that transcended the grunge movement to sometimes be referred to as (gasp!) “mainstream rock,” has released a video in connection with their new single “Mind Your Manners” off the forthcoming full length album Lightning Bolt.

The video features the band rocking out, as only Pearl Jam does in a live setting, in front of a large projection screen displaying scenes of nuclear detonations, bombs being dropped, the Gulf deepwater oil spill, and some of the destruction wrought by Superstorm Sandy interspersed with artistically rendered scenes of forests burning, tornadoes, and the all around consequences of mankind refusing to “mind their manners” with regards towards their treatment of the environment. Basically, the video, the song, and the lyrics are loaded with all of the ideas, images, and words that Pearl Jam have used over the decades to drive extreme right-wing conservatives crazy. In other words…the video is great.


Lightning Bolt is due to be released on Oct. 15 of this year and Pearl Jam will be touring throughout the Fall in support of their latest effort.
