    I've been listening to these guys a LOT recently, too. They really do kick mass a$$...little trivia...does anyone notice anything interesting about most of the drum paterns....???
     
  7. Their Earlier stuff is mediocre, but Badmotorfinger, Superuknown and Down on the Upside are amazing. The latter two are Zeppelin influenced, but with a real all out heavy feeling. Superunknown, IMHO is the best "grunge" album ever, ahead of Nevermind (right place right time) and Pearl Jam's Ten.

    Yeah, well "Hands All Over" is good, "Ugly Truth" as well, but the rest of the album...? Nah.
     
  11. Have any of you ever heard Birth Ritual? I think it was on the soundtrack for "Sleepless in Seatle".

    That song jams!

    Heehee. Can you just picture Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan meeting to the love ballad "Birth Ritual?" Heh...That would definitely set a tone for that movie that I hadn't thought about before...


    Damn. I just admited that I've seen "Sleepless in Seattle."
     
  15. Soundgarden at one point was my favorite band of all time. Superunknown and Badmotorfinger were my favorite cd's. "Searching with my good eye closed" and "the day i tried to live" were the best songs ever. I guess I grew out of them though. Now that i think about I havent listened to them in a while. For some reason though after soundgarden i gravitated towards Alice in Chains and now I like AIC way better, I just wish theyd right new material.
     
  16. If they could get Lane Staley off the smack long enough maybe they could. The vocals is the best thing about that band and it wouldn't be the same without Lane.

    AIC own too, but Soundgarden has heavier riffs I think. Blah they're both good especially Chris Cornell and Layne Staley (sp?).

  18. I wish they would get back together.The music scene sure could use it.
     
  19. Well.. I know Chris Cornell is now working with 3/4 of what was Rage Against the Machine.. what are the rest of the Soundgarden guys doing nowadays?
     
  20. Matt Cameron played on Geddy Lee's solo album.. not sure about the other guys.
