Top 10 Soundgarden Songs [Watch]
Editor's Note: In tribute to Chris Cornell, who tragically and suddenly passed away following Soundgarden's show on May 17 in Detroit, we are presenting our existing list of the 10 Best Soundgarden Songs in his honor. May he rest in peace.
That voice, those licks, that power … we're talking about the one and only Soundgarden and trust us, it was no easy task coming up with a list of the 10 Best Soundgarden Songs, but you can see our selections in the video above.
We are talking about a band that has released six studio albums, sold over 10 million records in the U.S. and an estimated 22 million plus albums worldwide. They split at the top of their game in 1997, but returned in 2012 with much acclaim and fanfare with the King Animal album, showing that they still had something left to say and vital music left to make.
There's just something about the magic that's created when the powerful voice of Chris Cornell is paired with the blistering licks of Kim Thayil, the pummeling low end of Ben Shepherd and one of rock's greatest drummers in Matt Cameron. Simply put, Soundgarden know their way around heavy like few in the game.
What will be No. 1? Does the tongue-twisty wordsmanship of "Black Hole Sun" float your boat? Do you get the full power behind "Outshined"? Does "Rusty Cage" rock your world? Or is part of your plan to hear "Spoonman" as part of this list? Check out the 10 Best Soundgarden Songs in the video above.
