* ''Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path'' (2015), a collection of mostly rare recordings. The regular edition is triple, Originals, Covers and Oddities. A one-disc edition with just the Originals CD (and even then, with a few songs missing) also exists.



* AlbumTitleDrop: ''Down on the Upside'' has one in "Dusty."

to:

* AlbumTitleDrop: ''Down on the Upside'' has one in "Dusty."" Chris said he wanted to put that name to the song, but Ben Shepherd had already baptized it as "Dusty".



* {{Bowdlerize}}: One of the songs done for BBC's Friday Rock Show was Music/{{Fear}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLV-ne2bvjM "I Don't Care About You", changing the chorus from]] "I don't care about you! [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck you!]]" to "I don't care about you! No way!".



** CoverAlbum: The "Covers" CD of ''Echo of Miles'' has most songs by other artists Soundgarden recorded along the way.



* GuestStarPartyMember: During 2014, Matt Chamberlain had to fill in the drums as Matt Cameron was busy touring with Pearl Jam (a band Chamberlain ''also'' filled in for many years before).



* HearingVoices: "The Day I Tried To Live"

to:

* HearingVoices: "The Day I Tried To Live"Live". "Black Saturday" also has a brief mention of this as a senility symptom.



**[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rei5VFFtO8 "Birth Ritual"]], to the point [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFzT1QSv-7w 2015 Chris couldn't even attempt to repeat it]].
-->"Late for the biiiirth... ritual! [[BigWordShout Rituaaaal! RITUAAAAAL!]] '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis RI-TU-AAAAAAAL!]]'''").



** The songs mentioned under ClusterFBomb above double as a PrecisionFStrike in contrast to the rest of the band's catalog - the two along with "Gun" are the only three by them which use the F-Bomb.

to:

** The songs mentioned under ClusterFBomb above double as a PrecisionFStrike in contrast to the rest of the band's catalog - the two along with "Gun" are the only three by them which use the F-Bomb. (and even if their released version of [[Music/{{Fear}} "I Don't Care About You"]] is {{Bowdlerize}}d, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrK0L0ed8y8 when performed live]] the Precision "Fuck You!"s are intact)



** ''Badmotorfinger'' is a reference to ''Montrose'''s song "Bad Motor Scooter."

to:

** ''Badmotorfinger'' is a reference to ''Montrose'''s Montrose's song "Bad Motor Scooter."


Added DiffLines:

* SpecialGuest: Artis the Spoonman in the song named after him (he even complained the band forgot to thank him during the Grammys) and [[Music/PearlJam Mike McCready]] in "Eyelid's Mouth".


Added DiffLines:

* StopAndGo: "Black Rain" has an instrumental coda after it seems to end.

* CoverVersion: "[[Music/JohnLennon Two Minutes of Silence]]" (as "One Minute of Silence"), with tongue firmly in cheek. (Cornell joked that the band "appreciated the Lennon arrangement so much".) Taken a bit more seriously, "[[Music/TheBeatles Come Together]]", "[[Music/{{Devo}} Girl U Want]]", "[[Music/TheRollingStones Stray Cat Blues]]", "Smokestack Lightning" by Music/HowlinWolf, and a version of "[[Music/BlackSabbath Into The Void]]" with lyrics from Chief Sealth.

* SurrealMusicVideo: The [[NotableMusicVideos highly notable]] video to "Black Hole Sun" featuring a StepfordSuburbia filled with {{Stepford Smiler}}s whose faces twist and contort (using VisualCompression) to form [[SlasherSmile massive grins]] and gigantic eyes. As you can imagine, this quickly crosses far into UncannyValley. Eventually, as the lyric goes ("till you all just disappear"), the world of the video gets sucked up into a literal Black Hole during a storm.

* {{Yarling}}: On occasion, though not as much as other {{Grunge}} acts. Usually it's when Ben Shepherd sings.

Soundgarden is a UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} {{Grunge}}[=/=]AlternativeMetal band formed in TheEighties and popular in TheNineties. Their name comes from a sculpture in Seattle, "A Sound Garden". The band was recognized as one of The Big Four of Grunge (along with Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/PearlJam and Music/AliceInChains), though they didn't become successful until the genre fully took off with the release of Nirvana's ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' and Pearl Jam's ''Music/TenAlbum''. Their 1994 album ''Superunknown'' is considered a masterpiece of the movement. Their music is largely characterised by {{Epic Riff}}s, Music/ChrisCornell's distinctive voice, and common use of UncommonTime, producing a sound many reviewers have described as being Music/LedZeppelin [[XMeetsY meets]] Music/BlackSabbath.
