ABOUT SOUNDGARDEN
Soundgarden
are internationally recognized as one of the world's most influential rock bands. With an exemplary career and GRAMMY®-winning catalog, the Seattle band started a transformation in rock music that inspired a generation. A gargantuan #1 hit upon its release on March 8, 1994, the album earned the band two GRAMMY® awards for singles "Black Hole Sun" and "Spoonman." Rolling Stone's David Fricke expounds: "The best albums define their time, then transcend it. Superunknown is an honest monument to its era and birthplace. Superunknown is also a heavy masterpiece of vision and backbone, a classic of American, progressive hard rock made by a band that, from the start, always aimed higher and farther than its scene, peers and competition." Selling over 9 million copies worldwide, the album was certified five times platinum by the RIAA in the United States, making it the band's most commercially successful album- undeniably helping to redefine alternative and hard rock, leaving an indelible mark on the course of music history. Soundgarden recently headlined the first-ever US iTunes festival at SXSW and performed at an exclusive taping of Guitar Center Sessions presented by DIRECTV.
