ok so theres one for outkast who are just as unlikely so im starting this one. HOWEVER. im feelin like they really are gonna get back together by next year. whether or no coachella is hip to it to grab the first performance (pleeeease) i dunno. but my reasoning of this is as follows

1)recently at a tom morello gig in seattle 3 of the four original members took the stage and played a 3 song set including spoonman, hunted down and nothing to say.

2)and then even more recently chris cornell posted on his twitter that kim (thayil) attended his recent seattle show and they hung out.

a big step being that one of the big reasons the band broke up in the first place was animosity between these two.

3)also when asked about the quasi-reunion in an interview chris said the only regret he had was that he wasnt there to take part. and then when asked about the possibility of a full scale reunion, instead of shooting it down as he usually does he said, "who knows! anything is possible"

leading me to believe they are all softening to the idea. i would be there in a heartbeat. whos with me?

i like some soundgarden songs but as a band i think they are horrible, especially now, i saw chris cornell perform live (which i know is obviously different) but, it was HORRIBLE i left after half of one song. ( i didnt pay for the tickets)

Cornell playing their songs solo while touring with Audioslave eliminated any possible future desire to see them played again. Plus the fact his douchiness is constantly rising.

no interest in this.

Aren't Soundgarden pretty much the encapsulation of everything that "alternative rock" was supposed to be an alternative to?

malcolmjamalawesome
05-03-2009, 09:45 AM
See I felt like of the big 4 Seattle early 90's alt rock bands (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden), while Nirvana was far and away my favorite, Soundgarden was really the most talented in terms of musicianship and in terms of complex song structure and just more challenging music to listen to. I mean, yeah, they had some "Black Hole Suns" in there. But I think that, if anything, Soundgarden is probably more aligned with the modern music snob's tastes than the other 3.

That's just me though. And I am only correct 9-10 out of 10 times.

All of those bands were great! I really hope that Soundgarden reforms and plays Coachella. I honestly thought that they may have been the secret reunion that GV was going to get 4 this past year. They fuckin rock big time... I dont know what Cornell is doing with Timberland nowadays but whatever. If they were to reunite they would sell out shows across the country and in my opinion deserve a headlining spot. And if u disagree cool but The Killers headlined this year. So it can happen.

I see Soundgarden reuniting once they get inducted into the Hall of Fame (which they would be eligible in 4 or 5 years, right?) When they reunite though I could picture them headlining or subheadlining though. You wouldn't hear any complaining from me though. I'd love to see them live. Nothing against them though but I think next year will be Pearl Jam's year...

They'd easily headline. A Soundgarden reunion is a bigger headline draw than The Cure or The Killers. I would go to the day they play regardless of who else plays.

Also to the Radiohead douche. Soundgarden were always awesome, they probably had a couple amazing records left when they split. Radiohead is just total pussy music to me, I like OK Computer and The Bends, but they're not even rock music to me anymore and Yorke's voice is just too feminine for me. Cornell's singing in his prime was about as manly as you can get. I think a Soundgarden reunion would really redeem him for a decade of shittyness.

I don't suck Cornell's dick. He hasn't done anything good this decade, the last good record he made was Euphoria Morning in 1999, but he was one of the top artists of the 1990s and one of the best singers in the last 20 years. Radiohead just happens to be the most overrated band in the last 20 years thanks to the Hipster generation. I'm not saying they're not a good band, I really do like The Bends and OK Computer, but they're not even rock anymore and Yorke's voice gets grating after awhile.

They're headliners. Don't underestimate the popularity of a Seattle grunge act. The people that listened to it back then still listen to it, and nothing but it. Not to mention this is the original lineup, unlike Alice in Chains. "Black Hole Sun" is still played on alternative radio plenty. Way bigger than Faith No More, who I believe can hold a bill pretty well with a strong subhead.

And mark me down as a 7 on the Coachella excitement scale (Faith No More reunion being a 9.5, Blink 182 reunion being a 1.5)

Chris' solo work has absolutely nothing to do with Soundgarden.

Also, if any of you were actually old enough to have been attending concerts during the 90s, then you would know that Chris has always been kind of a douchebag (also that Matt Cameron is crazy). For example here is a press pic from '91:

Exactly. All of this "I have lost all respect for Chris" talk is fucking ridiculous. He's always been that way, so now he goes and does an album with Timbaland and suddenly Soundgarden isn't Soundgarden anymore? If you like Superunknown then there's no reason not to want them to play Coachella.

Any word on what ol Terry was up to as of last year?

superfiction
10-13-2009, 07:15 AM
he did pretty much a whole deftones record, i think they were down to vocals on 2 songs when the band decided to scrap it and start over witha differnt producer. he just did the new fall of troy record. i dont really know what he's up to at the moment. i kinda fell from his good graces once i went from the friend to the boyfriend zone. he usually keeps busy between big projects mixing random stuff here and there or producing small no name bands. which i dont really get cuz he's turned down a few huge projects the last few years (i cant really say who) but it always frustrates me knowing what coulda been

obzen
10-13-2009, 07:25 AM
I know that Eros was produced by Date and that Deftones put it on the shelf because of the situation with Chi Cheng's condition,but they got another producer for the new set of songs? I thought they were going to keep him at the helm,especially seeing how things went with Rob Ezrin last time around,hmm...

superfiction
10-13-2009, 07:29 AM
yeah i dont really know. i havent talked to the deftones guys or terry in ages. maybe its being self produced but im 95% sure terry has nothing to do with these new tracks. but as i said im not exactly "in the loop" lately

obzen
10-13-2009, 07:36 AM
Yeah,my cousin is married to DJ Crook,and I've met the Sacto boys at different shows,but it's been a minute(last chilled with Chino in Pomona in 07). As for the new LP,if it's self-produced I'll be willing to bet that Terry's at least got something to do with engineering(directly or indirectly). The man is one hell of an sound engineer if nothing else and he's practically a 6th member.

superfiction
10-13-2009, 07:39 AM
dont hold your breath man. thats all im saying. i hope so too, but im pretty sure he's just been doing stuff around here. they were doing this new record in LA but i heard great thigns about the sacto sessions with terry so hopefully those will surface eventually. if nothing else just because its got chi on there

i like some soundgarden songs but as a band i think they are horrible, especially now, i saw chris cornell perform live (which i know is obviously different) but, it was HORRIBLE i left after half of one song. ( i didnt pay for the tickets)

ok how canyou think Soundgarden is horrible now by judging from Chris Cornell's performance. Chris Cornell is shitty as a solo artist, but to put that as how good or bad Soundgarden is quite stupid.

Cornell is still solid live, or at least was in 2007 when I saw him. His albums in the 2000's have all been garbage but a new Soundgarden record would definitely be the best Cornell related project since his 1999 debut solo album Euphoria Morning. Also Kim Thayil has probably come up with some songs over the last 12 and a half years since Soundgarden broke up, and Shepherd/Cameron also took part in the songwriting. I also think Cornell will know he has to step it up so he doesn't damage Soundgarden's legacy. SG at Coachella could be epic if they play, it's been a dream of mine for years now. NOW GOLDENVOICE, GO GET THE SCREAMING TREES!

On October 6, 2009 all the members of Soundgarden attended Night 3 of Pearl Jam's 4-night stand at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA. At the show, during an encore, Temple of the Dog reunited for the first time since Pearl Jam's show at the Santa Barbara Bowl on October 28, 2003. Chris Cornell joined Eddie Vedder on stage to sing "Hunger Strike". It was the first public appearance of Soundgarden together since their breakup in April 1997

Just silly that the hipster kids think this is somehow BAD for the lineup.

Soundgarden has by far the most eclectic and interesting mix of music across their albums of all the grunge bands, from hard-charging guitar rock to slow-rising mood music, almost always with barely sensible lyrics. (Although Alice in Chains fans might argue this point)

Cornell's solo tracks are unquestionably weak, but having seen him perform lots of Soundgarden music as a solo artist and with Audioslave, he's definitely still got the chops to sing his old tunes.

The only potential downsides of Soundgarden at Coachella are if they play only radio songs (not some of their more interesting stuff) or newer stuff (if they're recording), and the possible scheduling conflicts they might create with newer bands. Otherwise, comparing them to Jack Johnson is completely silly.

I realize it's all the cool hotness to bang on Chris Cornell, but arguing that he's lost his voice is simply flat-out wrong, and smacks of piling on. Sure, his new music is lame and poppy compared to any of his previous stuff... but I've seen him live a few times in recent years and he's never, ever failed to turn up the rock when doing Soundgarden/TotD tracks.

Here's some examples: "Rusty Cage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v-ENhwT2T4&feature=related)" at the Wiltern this year.... "Burden in My Hand (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kfB2QIsvCU&feature=related)" from the same show... and "Jesus Christ Pose (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eje0eZDHpM)" in 2009 in Berlin (one of the all-time baddest SG songs).

He's not 19 anymore, but the guy still has pipes. The only thing holding CC back was his solo ambition, and hopefully he can restrain those urges now that the band is back together.

Nice try - no cigar. I'm not dumping on him because his solo material is shit...in fact, I am not dumping on him at all. Simply stating a truism, as you have. No, he's not 19 and can no linger hit the notes he did 15-20 years ago. There's no shame in that, but it is sad. He used to be one of my favourite vocalists (a long time ago), but that voice his gone and each tour over the last decade has seen it get weaker and weaker. The only saving grace about the last album was that he learned to use his voice in a slightly different way. Pity that was rubbish, but he's aware of it too. So, if you think youtube clips can do his voice justice....good luck with that.

Well, I wasn't referring to anything you posted, I was responding to this:

"Have any of you heard Chris Cornell lately? This isn't going to be as epic as you all think." (menikmati)

Sorry I didn't quote it. Of course YouTube doesn't do his voice justice, but I was at that Wiltern show, so I can vouch that his voice is still strong enough to carry the material.

I think in Soundgarden's case, his early recordings are somehow held against him - rarely did he sound live like he sounded on the recordings.. it doesn't mean he sucks, or the show sucks, it just means he's human and he doesn't lip-sync.

Billy Joel brings in another singer to hit his high notes on "An Innocent Man" - but he's still every bit the performer he was a quarter century ago. Having seen Chris put on a 34-song show with all his material just a couple years ago, I can say few fans will be disappointed.... haters might be, but they won't admit it.

Yeah, they do put on a good show. They have enough big songs to keep a massive crowd interested and moving, and Brandon has great stage presence. Plus they tour constantly, so they know the drill.

Also, when they started playing, a flood of hot chicks hit the mainstage. So that was a plus.

Cute image.

Good luck to anyone who enjoys what he has to offer in 2010. I hope he can pull if off, but based on the last several tours, it's just been far more miss than hit. He certainly still has something to give - I just hope he plays to his strengths. It's not like I am wanting the main to wail like he did on "Beyond the Wheel", but I worry about songs that are substantially less demanding on his vocals. At least he won't be backed by session musicians....

Soundgarden was a sub par band from the early 90's. Moving on.

And how old were you in the early 90's, motherfucker?

Actually, the early 90s is when they started to turn to shit, but if you want to be contrary... :thu

They never turned to shit - every album has great tracks, and the later albums have a very wide variety of sounds and styles. Sure, they made more radio music, but I'd put their radio tracks up against just about anybody's. I'd rather hear "Burden in the Hand" and "Fell on Black Days" than just about any of the bands on the radio today, and the non-radio tracks (such as Zero Chance, Ty Cobb, Never Named) are more interesting than the well-known songs. Like 90's mates Alice in Chains and Faith No More, the most interesting music is what most folks haven't heard.

They were never sub par, though. If Audioslave is a bogey, Soundgarden is at least a birdie.

um ... No.

Chris and Kim fucking hate each other, last I heard Big Boi and Andre don't. There's a slight difference there.

LOL

That was said largely in jest. There's a very clear line for me after Badmotorfinger - things became too polished and bloated. I can't stand any more than about 3 songs after that album, but I wouldn't say with any degree of seriousness that it was shit.

The reality is that the Soundgarden I loved died around 1994, which is in part why I can't get too excited about v3.0. I miss what they were 20 years ago, so even if they were anywhere close to where they were in 1998, I'd be pretty sober about it.

But that's just me. I completely get why people are excited. I'm just trying to make the point that the man's voice has suffered, so tempering expections may be no bad thing.

This post widened my eyes a great deal. Just goes to show you it takes all types to put together a festival. Glad to have you! Matt Cameron is a great drummer, and has filled in admirably for Pearl Jam, but he's also a musicaholic and bound to jump right on board when PJ stops touring.

Agreed that SG's songs were a completely different breed post-Badmotorfinger... but the albums weren't complete Bob Rock-style sellouts (such as with Metallica and The Cult), they were just heavier on experimentation and more of Ben Shepherd's influence, I think. They still retained an unbreakable code, though... the less sense SG songs make, the better they are.

That was one of the many problems with Audioslave - the songs tried to make sense, have some sort of storyline. If CC keeps that attitude, I'd rather SG just tour and not record again. I'll take weird stuff like "hard headed f*ck you all" over boring "To be yourself is all that you can do" any day.

What the hell are you talking about? All of Soundgarden's best songs make perfect sense. Also, you don't seen to get the Matt Cameron thing either. He didn't fill in for anyone. He permanently replaced whatever their old drummer's name was.

Pearl Jam has already been ruled out for COACHELLA, or it seems as there listed under "not performing" in the Confirmed Acts thread, first post......
Soundgarden is supposidly having a full on reunion, but how could it be @ COACHELLA if their drummer is not there?

You buttfucker. The reason Pearl Jam is "ruled out" (which they're not) is because they're playing a festival in New Orleans a week after Coachella. So, it absolutely would have no bearing on whether or not Matt Cameron could be there with Soundgarden or not.

I love this band, but these lyrics are a far cry from "Imagine". Thank God for the many rock bands who see forth to say it as they see it - no matter how weird that may be:

Head Injury:
You got a kiss for me, it hits me hard
You got a fist for me, you love so hard
My hands on my head, your words are like arrows
My hands on my head, there's permanent damage

Gun:
I got an idea
We can do it
All on our own
Nothing to worry
Regret must weigh a ton
Kick kick kick till the
laws are broken
Kick kick kick till the
boots are worn

Entering:
I'm entering
Bleeding hearts, two lights, goodness, stable
Glass on bars won't hold me back
Without a sound

Searching with My Good Eye Closed:
Painted blue across my eyes
And tie the linen on
And I'm on my way
Looking for the paradigm
So I can pass it off
Is it on my side
Is it to the sky

4th of July:
Pale in the flare light
The scared light cracks & disappears
And leads the scorched ones here
And everywhere no one cares

Ty Cobb:
What made it slow you down
Sucking on a ball and chain
Another motherfucker goes down the drain
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it up to the hot rod death toll

Soundgarden's lyrics >>> Audioslave's lyrics, even if they are strange

I agree with that completely - there's very little of the obvious rhyming diction that permeates Audioslave "lyrics". I mean... really, Chris?

Man or Animal (Audioslave):
You give me a heart attack
You look like the summertime
You call me an artifact
But I'll save that for another time
I could be rich or poor
I don't need anymore

Somewhere around 2000, some poor sap gave CC a rhyming dictionary as the worst gift ever. I for one hope he loses it before he ruins SG's legacy. Really - rhyming time with time? Weak.

I fucking love Soundgarden's lyrics.

I woke the same as any other day
Except a voice was in my head
It said seize the day, pull the trigger
Drop the blade, and watch the rolling heads

The day I tried to live
I stole a thousand beggar's change
And gave it to the rich

The day I tried to win
I dangled from the power lines
And let the martyrs stretch
Singing

One more time around might do it
One more time around might make it
One more time around might do it
One more time around
The day I tried to live

Words you say never seem
To live up to the ones inside your head
The lives we make never seem
To ever get us anywhere but dead

The day I tried to live
I wallowed in the blood and mud with
All the other pigs

I woke the same as any other day you know
I should have stayed in bed

The day I tried to win
I wallowed in the blood and mud with
All the other pigs

And I learned that I was a liar
Just like you
