The solo career really was that bad.
Was this post made because there's a reunion happening this year?
Or to remember how 18 years ago around this time Chris cut his hair off?
hadn't heard that, awesome... only got to see them twice in the day, now my girl can finally get her chance.
+2 for Marswillrule (1 for each)
Hopefully we can get some more "Loud Love!"
Comments are funny.
I didn't know they reunited in 08
As far as the ill-fated solo career, I think Cornell's version of "Billy Jean" is better than Michael's...
Of Soundgarden's music output, I only like BadMotorFinger, which was great. The other stuff...no.
They did have a fantastic drummer though!
After chris cut his hair and went all pretty boy alt rock they sucked.
one of the best albums ever!
I dug up some old bootleg cassettes, a dusty old blaster and painted my basement to these guys a few weeks ago. I used to love this band.
i still hold soundgarden pretty near and dear, although i super rarely pull them out. one of the first bands i paid any attention to when i was young.
batmotorfinger was great, i also remember being into louder than love at some point. superunknown had a couple good moments, but mostly not my favorite.
YES! Saw them a few times back in teh day - favorite time being the Aragorn Ballroom in Chicago with Swervedriver opening - killer show! Chris let himself fall backwards from a balcony area if memory serves me...into arms outstretched.
Also, his first solo album was really, really good IMO. I never heard the recent Timbaland stuff - but nor did I care too.
Glad to have SG back. Other great re-unions IMO are Dinosaur Jr - they could be even better now than they were in the eighties and of course teh Pixies. Last Novembers shows at the Palladium were all killer!
But look at how much pearl jam grew artisticly and stayed relevant in the past 20 years.
mostly because of soundgarden.
I'd say SG are a straight ahead rock band - and a great one. Forget the grunge tag.
U notice I didnt include Alice In Chains in my round-up of classic re-unions.
no matter what genre you place them under, soundgarden always sounded super cheesy to me. mostly because of the vocals.
Wow really? I used to think Chris made them sound too metal for my tastes - but I grew to love it - which isnt that surprising considering my metallic upbringing.
Yeah, Chris Cornell screams alot like Steve Perry.
It's not a real reunion without the best part. I loved Alice in Chains!!
AIC sucked starting with jar of flies imo, but yeah the whole new AIC is retarded...
Its like the new helmet, only helmets members are all still alive.
Does Helmet have a new lineup?!
Separate names with a comma.
