Soundgarden are a legendary name and a piece of US music history. The band who currently consist of Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd merge elements of punk rock with metal to create their unique, experimental grunge style. Taking influences from 70's juggernauts including Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin, the band began life under the name The Shemps before touring, writing and honing their sound as a group, preparing to release their debut album.

It took a while for Soungarden to achieve a commercial success to match the cult notoriety they were receiving on the live scene. They picked up an early Grammy nomination for Ultramega OK which led to a signing with to A & M Records. Their third album 'Badtomyfinger' gained them moderate UK and US chart success and another Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. However it was the following album 'Superunknown' that is considered to be their most iconic and successful record to date, it topped the charts in the US and included huge singles including 'Spoonman', 'Black Hole Sun' and 'My Wave'. Incorporating experimental sounds from across the globe, the band's dark lyrical matter and evolving style captivated fans and new listeners alike to this incredible body of work. They won their first two Grammy awards with this album and toured the world extensively.

The follow-up to this album, 'Down On The Upside' was considered to be both a commercial and critical success yet it failed to emanate the stature of its predecessor. Due to inter-band disputes, they decided to split with Cameron stating that Soundgarden was 'eaten up by the business.' The band all continued to work on solo projects and material before an inevitable reunion occurred in 2010 and the band released their first single since 1997 which led to a new original album entitled 'King Animal' coming out in 2012. Hydrargyrum. Soundgarden has left a huge legacy as band, they are cited as inspiration to some of the most iconic performers including Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam. They are hailed for their technical abilities, development of sound and pioneering qualities to the genre of grunge.
