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/{{Ten}}''. 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 [[SugarWiki/XMeetsY meets]] Music/BlackSabbath.

The group broke up in 1997 due to [[CreativeDifferences internal conflict]], leaving Cornell to form the {{super group}} Music/{{Audioslave}} with the former members of Music/RageAgainstTheMachine, and later a solo career [[LoveItOrHateIt with polarizing results]]. Cornell also co-wrote "You Know My Name" with Music/DavidArnold for the ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''. He's also headed in a more pop/hip-hop-oriented direction recently, causing much backlash among the fanbase. Cameron currently drums for Pearl Jam, and has since the Yield tour (he wasn't involved with the Temple of the Dog reunion mentioned below). Thayil played with [[Music/DeadKennedys Jello Biafra]] and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Krist Novoselic]] as the "No WTO Combo" after the Seattle riots of November 1999, and has contributed to Music/DaveGrohl's side-project Probot.

* DoomMetal: Have flirted with this numerous times (which can be owed to their Black Sabbath influence); "Outshined" and "Slaves & Bulldozers" are some of the most prominent examples.

** They are also considered to be the UrExample of Stoner Rock— 1988's ''Ultramega OK'' featured all the usual aspects of what would become stoner rock, and it was released years before the likes of Music/{{Kyuss}} or Music/{{Sleep}} even formed.
** The demo for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMak5Bwcw0I Beyond The Wheel]]" has to be heard to be believed. It's so slow, plodding, and heavy that it almost doesn't even sound like the same band.

* ''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]].

** 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)

* 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.
