5/15/2009 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The surveillance video of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament getting attacked by a knife wielding thug has just been released -- and his beatdown is brutal!

It all went down in Atlanta in April, when three masked hoodlums ran out of the bushes and jumped the dude's SUV, smashing the windows and demanding cash.

Ament tried to make a run for it -- but was knocked to the ground by one of the assailants. Ament suffered a laceration on his head and was treated at the scene. The attackers made off with $7,000 worth of money and goods.

No arrests have been made.

Not shocked    

Uhm Wow~first off I don't think I said a word about being better than anyone else~Secondly, Marco's comments were racist. Ok , I admit I was irked and the KKK reference was heavy handed but it was the "them LIB-RALs" and "guilt ridden WHITE liberals" and "how the folks you pity celebrate diversity~you could be next." comments that stuck out for me. What should I be afraid of? Diversity? A black person? Please!

Of course it would happen in Atlanta where the employment rate is low, but stupidity is abundant. These guys need to get a real job, brain transplants (preferrably using the brains of a genius), and to find a true purpose in life. Right now they're as good as dead as far as I'm concerned.

This didnt even make the news in Atlanta. This really sucks. Jeff Ament is a great bassist and now probably hates my town.
