Did you know these music videos were filmed in Washington?

With a vast assortment of musical acts that cut their teeth in Washington State, several artists came home to showcase the Pacific Northwest in their music videos.

Here’s a list of some of the most popular videos and maybe one or two that you didn’t know about.

In Pearl Jam’s Even Flow, filmed in January 1992 at Seattle’s Moore Theatre, lead singer Eddie Vedder climbed the walls and jumped into the crowd.

Eddie Vedder, former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and the rest of the guys from Temple of the Dog filmed Hunger Strike at Discovery Park.

With a title like ‘Posse on Broadway,’ Sir Mix-A-Lot filmed this hit all over Seattle, including Dick’s Drive-In (on Broadway, of course).

90s mainstay Screaming Trees shot their video of Nearly Lost You in Ellensburg.
