Soundgarden - Screaming Life / Fopp

Label: SubPop
Year: 1990

Hey, remember when Chris Cornell didn't sing like Peter fucking Cetera? Remember? Before he started sporting that pervy-ass moustache (I'm aware of the goatee, but somehow that's less "kid toucher" and more "greaseball")? Remember when Soundgarden were the saviours of American heavy metal? Kim Thayil was rocking a goddamn C.O.C. shirt in every photo? Prior to Matt Cameron playing with those wet turds Pearl Jam? Any of this ringing a bell? 
If you ever wanted to hang yourself over "Black Hole Sun", or god forbid, Audioslave, then please go back and be reminded just how far the mighty have fallen. 
Fuckin A, Soundgarden used to be good as shit.

i once ran into mr. cornell in the shower after gym class...and you know what he said to me?

"i keep getting older...they stay the same age"

and then he nodded his head as if to say "awwwwright"

and then walked away
