I have been a Soundgarden fan for years. Like I said in a post before, they were an important part of my high school years. The grunge movement was big in the 90’s but I was in high school during then. During high school, I was listening to a lot of music. Mostly metal and hard rock kind of stuff. Soundgarden has always been my favorite band and they still are.
Here are my top 10 favorite Soundgarden songs in no particular order, I just love these songs and they don’t have to be their hits either. There will be some songs that many people will not know about, their obscure songs, ya know?
I would suggest you give these a listen yourself. After you hear all these songs, you would then realize why Soundgarden is very important to us in the rock world. They always wrote tight music.
Here we go, my top Ten favorite Soundgarden songs:
(“Badmotorfinger” is a great album but these are the two best songs on it. These two songs are probably the heaviest songs Soundgarden has ever written. The riffs in both of these songs are sick and so are Chris’s vocals)
(This song came from one of Soundgarden’s earlier albums before they got big. Another pretty heavy song with great riffs and great vocals. Their second album, “Louder than Love” was really good shit too!)
(“The Superunknown” was Soundgarden’s best album in their career but these were my favorite songs on it. “Black Hole Sun” was a beautiful song, don’t get me wrong but I love these three songs from “The Superunknown” even more. “Mailman” gives me goosebumps each time, I would say that song is the heaviest on the album. “My Wave” and “Fell On Black Days” are pretty heavy too. Chris was one of the greatest rock singers ever.)
(The critical reception for “Down on the Upside” wasn’t receive very positively but I still think it’s a great album. There are some pretty heavy songs on it. These two songs are my favorite off the album. “Blow Up The Outside World” and “Overfloater” are both powerful songs and give me goosebumps each time I hear ’em.)
(A lot of people thought “King Animal” their latest record was a disappointment, I thought it was a great album. I liked every song on it but these two “Blood on the Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before” are the best tunes on this album. Chris really showed his singing talent in those songs)
Enjoy the listen!
