Columbine Tape Anew

09/23/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

That graphic and controversial Columbine videotape showing the victims of the tragedy being removed by helicopter as pop music plays on its soundtrack has been re-edited and placed back on sale without its original music soundtrack. Grammy winner Sarah McLachlan was one artist who demanded her song, "I Will Remember You," be removed from the tape. Authorities acceded to her demand -- and have stepped up production of the $25 tape, due to public demand. Before being taken off the market last week, the tape sold 107 copies in two days, says the Associated Press. By Friday there were orders for nearly 500. The tape shows the aftermath of the Columbine High School massacre in Littleton, Colo., that took place on April 20, 1999. It claimed the lives of one teacher and 14 students, including gunmen Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris.
