Has it really been 20 years? Soundgarden's 1994 classic 'Superunknown' has reached the two-decade mark and to celebrate the occasion, they're offering a variety of new 20th Anniversary edition sets. The band is teaming with Loudwire, Ultimate Classic Rock and Diffuser.fm to give you a chance to win the 'Superunknown' Super Deluxe Edition box set as well as a 'Superunknown: The Singles' vinyl set that's signed by the band.
The July 4 show during Hyde Park's British Summer Time Festival will feature Black Sabbath, Soundgarden and Motorhead.
Two of the most influential bands of the '90s will tour together this summer.
By 1994, the Seattle-centric sound generally referred to as “grunge” had pretty much achieved worldwide dominance. But of the four bands credited with flying alternative nation’s flannel flag across the globe -- Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden -- only the last had not yet broken through the Platinum sales plateau.
For just about any band that eventually made it big, there's at least one guy who was in the lineup before they were famous -- their 'Pete Best,' if you will. But Jason Everman, who played guitar for Nirvana and bass for Soundgarden in the late '80s, narrowly missed his shot at the charts twice.
There's no doubt that Soundgarden are one of the hottest concert attractions in the rock world nowadays, especially since they've just released 'King Animal,' their first new album in 16 years. So how would you like to win a trip to see the band performing in their hometown of Seattle, where they began their rise to fame?
