I've been collecting Soundgarden bootlegs for years. Does that mean I'm a redneck, despite the fact I'm a graduate student, teach French, have been a political activist for years, and live in the most progressive city in America?

Don't speak out of your ass.

They weren't even Pearl Jam good. I was really pissed to read about how Sub Pop gave away Mudhoney's recording money to fund The Afghan Wigs recordings, even though it happened well over a decade ago. I just don't think The Afghan WIgs were NEARLY as talented or interesting as Mudhoney.

the whole audioslave thing was tragic, it went completely the opposite way for what i was hoping. Chris Cornell is just now a professioanl rock star and that is it. And the rage boys must have lost their way slightly, going from strong politically aware and caring songs to exploding 69 gazillion dollars worth of pyro in a film clip. go figure. i still love all the rage and sg stuff though. tom morello rocks balls

I turned down the chance to see Soundgarden in order to see Johnny Cash some time around 1988/89. In the long term, I think I made the better choice.

I had a second chance to see them at the Reading Festival in 1994. This time I turned up, but they didn't.

Afghan Whigs are fucking AMAZING. They rock harder than soundagrden, they are far far less derivative than soundgarden. their lyrics are more personal and meaningful than soundgarden's bloated proto-prog-rock babble. The afghan whigs rule!

Up In It
Congregation
Gentlemen

those three albums outweigh anything that soundgarden ever put out.

I agree heartily, apart from taking issue with the fireworks in the cochise video, that shit was cool and was the only thing that almost made the existance of their gash music excusable.

Don't speak out of your ass.

Yes, it means you are a fucking hick.

On that note, and just to clarify, liking Lynyrd Skynyrd and/or The Allman Bros. is infinitely more sophisticated than harboring an affection for (puke!) Soundgarden...although Alice in Chains are even worse.

Who's your favorite painter, dillweed?
Oh let me guess...it's some comic book/fantasy art illustrator maybe.
