Poll: What’s the Best Soundgarden Song? – Vote Now
Each week, we’ll be asking you to choose your favorite track from a list of 10 of the biggest songs from the next Artist of the Week's catalog.
You'll have until Friday at noon ET to cast your votes. We’ll then play the three tracks with the most votes during Loudwire Nights' Artist of the Week block to start the following Monday's show!
This week we're focusing on one of the most important groups to come out of the Pacific Northwest, Soundgarden.
Formed in 1984 by Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil and Hiro Yamamoto, Soundgarden were a trio that featured Cornell as a singing drummer. Eventually, they recruited local drummer Matt Cameron and became a dominating force within the Seattle music scene.
Though they didn't achieve massive commercial success until the mid-90s, their first album Ultramega OK came out in 1988, followed by Louder Than Love in 1989 and Badmotorfinger in 1991. It was 1994's Superunknown that launched them into superstardom, especially with the massive hit "Black Hole Sun."
Shortly after the release of the 1996's Down on the Upside, Soundgarden took a hiatus until 2010. King Animal was their final studio album, which came out in 2012. The group were working on their seventh record when Cornell tragically died — but the surviving members are doing their best to make sure their fans eventually get to hear what they created during that time.
Head below to choose your favorite, and tune into Loudwire Nights next Monday at 7PM ET to find out which three tracks prevailed.
Tune in tonight to hear which three Seether songs you voted the best!
