Music I Like – Video of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel

Love me some Soundgarden (and Chris Cornell), especially this one. Depressing lyrics, but I love it anyway, especially the guitars. It’s part of my workout music.

How would I know that this could be my fate?

Get Yours . . .

Talk about C-list, find me five people under twenty five who know these guys are and I’ll become a Sarah Palin fan. LOL, just kidding about Palin. She would have to send me a check for two million dollars and agree to talk in complete sentences.

Hey Debbie,
This song takes me back to the day after the last election! But, I heard that Soundgarden was regrouping and working on new material.(yay, if true)
Also, check out Tower of Power’s “Monster On A Leash” for your workout – some good ‘East Bay Grease’ soul music with a tight horn section that’ll get ya going.

Audio slave is my favorite band of all time.

Cool, makes me wanna’ spin some Seattle tunes again!
Hangin’ out with some friends this Superbowl Sunday mostly ignoring the game and just talkin’ ’bout music ‘n’ stuff. Someone said, do you realize the whole Seattle Grunge movement is 20+ yrs old already?!
Think about it, there’s people voting, making families and serving in the military that weren’t even around then!

I remember hearing a Beatles tune back in ’79 thinking – WOW, this is ancient history! But good music is good music no matter how old. Now, I’ll listen to anything, Duke Ellington to Classical, to Heavy Metal (no poseres) Folk, old Blues, old Country, Vocal, Instrumental (Buckethead Rules!) Ethnic, 70’s soul, Jazz, whatever. Just spin the dial and see what comes up.
…….Still no fan of rap or opera though!

Great choice Debbie. Soundgarden rocks. Always hoped they would make a comeback. Their intense dark music always had a way of connecting with me. Blow Up the Outside World and Pretty Noose other great songs.

and “Black Hole Sun” of course. Chris Cornell moved on to Audioslave with the far-left members of “Rage Against the Machine” minus Zach de le Rocha from 2001-2007. They continued their radical leftism and even perfomed in communist Cuba back in 2004. Last year, Chris Cornell released a solo album “Scream” which was produced by Timbaland (a notable hip-hop) producer. It flopped. I’m a fan of both, but Chris Cornell and Hip-Hop don’t mix. Now he’s back with Soundgarden.

Matthew, yes Soundgarden and most if not all musicians are liberals. However the music is intense and a lot of Soundgarden lyrics are about inner self struggles and angst. People can relate. Same with RATM, the music rocks. It pumps up your adrenaline. Though their lyrics are politically communist.

Want some workout stuff that’ll make your ear drums bounce? Quicksand. Their cover of “How Soon is Now” gives me goosebumps.

You, a Soundgarden fan??? Who would have thought that? Soundgarden was one of the best bands to come out of the Seattle scene of the early 90’s, and my favorite next to Alice in Chains.

I was lucky enough to see Soundagarden three times in the 90’s, and I hear they are rumored to be reuniting to hit the road this year? One can only hope!

Depressing indeed. This, along with Nirvana, Alison Chains, etc. should stay in the 90’s and never be heard from again.
You want something from the 90’s that rocks? Try Stone Temple Pilots.

    Alice in chains just had a hit and they are touring with a new album I think this summer. The station I listen to plays there new song all the time.

    tyler on February 12, 2010 at 12:39 am

Soundgarden is the one of the few bands from the 90s that holds up over time.

Stone Temple Pilots? Not so much (derivative).

Martin on February 11, 2010 at 9:31 am

Fell on obama days, I hope we can get back up out of this mud.

As David Spade once said during his Hollywood Minute on SNL, “I liked Stone Temple Pilots better when they were called PEARL JAM.” Still like them, but don’t think they can hold a candle to Soundgarden, PJ or Alice in Chains.

Soundgarden is fantastic. Superunknown is one of the best albums to come out of the whole grunge movement, along with Vs. and Vitalogy by PJ (hate their politics, love their music). 4th of July, Like Suicide, Limo Wreck, My Wave, Head Down, Fell on Black Days, the whole album is awesome.

Although I’d be ok if I never heard Black Hole Sun ever again.

Matt on February 12, 2010 at 12:55 am

Wow Debbie. Never would have pegged you for a Soundgarden fan. Check out their pre-Badmotorfinger record – Louder Than Love. Has a prophetic song called “Hands All Over.” Party on, Debbie.
