Please lets talk about these guys. they really need a thread because they are that amazing. Every album is amazing and they should of been the nirvana popularity of grunge but anyway superunknown and badmotofinger are astonishing albums. love jesus christ pose and my wave! Also down on the upside is ectremely underrated and burden in my hand and pretty noose are all great songs off of it.

Yup, awesome band and those two albums are awesome albums. My favorite Soundgarden songs are The Day I Tried to Live, Rusty Cage, and Let Me Drown.

good band, my 3rd fav. of the grunge bands.

Cornell has a great voice on him, one of the best around.

always loved the riffs for the songs, but never really liked Kim Thyal's solo's.

I guess when ever they went into studio they had a replica of Kim Thyal's couch brought into the studio for him to sit on. because he wasn't comfortable when he went into studio, he would get nervous, and he said he was always most comfortable playing on his couch at home-so that's why they brought in the couch, to make him more comfortable!

kind of interesting.

^^I love Kim's solos! He's one of the most underrated soloists, in my opinion.

I'm listening to them right now, I have all the albums, too. In short, they are my favorite band of all time and I consider them to be the most innovative of the Seattle Sound. Louder than ****>? Oh yeah.

I think "Black Hole Sun" embodies the grunge sound and ideals better than "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

They were a great band. I'd say Kim Thayil is the reincarnation of Tony Iommi if Tony wasn't still alive.

Speaking of Kim, anyone heard anything about since Soundgarden's split-up?

"Fell On Black Days" FTW!


that and like suicide and my wave and SUPERUNKNOWN are the best songs off that album. SUperunknown starts off pretty cool until kim just rips that unbelievable dark sabbathy riff and chris just screams his head off! Why does no one like down on the upside. Pretty noose and burden in my hand are some of the best soundgarden songs. Such a ****ing underrated album and i bet you if it came out a little earlier like 93 ish, it would of been huge because grunge died right when that album came out.

Soundgarden had the best riffs of the grunge bands, Thayil was amazing at that. Cornell was the best vocalist techinically-speaking, and some amazing range. I'm into Superunknown right now, but overall my favorite songs are Burden in My Hand, Ty Cobb, and Kickstand.

^ i hate kickstand! too punkish lol sound weird right? But they had allright riffs that mixed perfectly over everything and thats what made soundgarden. The best riffs in grunge were none because they were just mixing riffs that mixed with the music making amazing songs except for nirvana who just wrote crappy riffs over good bass and drums.

I like a bit of Punk from time to time, so I quite like Kickstand.

And Nirvana did not make crappy riffs!

My Wave is the ish right now for me. It's such a tight arrangment with the guitar, bass and drums hitting all at the same time. Love it. Superunknown altogether is that stuff. Love that album, the only bad thing about it is that its the only decent work that Michael Beinhorn has ever put together and he went on to ruin other bands like Korn (Untouchables, way over produced that record) and Fuel (Something about Evolution don't remember the exact title, it was their last cd and it was also drab and over produced).
