I'm telling you, almost all their songs have some kind of history but my fondest is probably this one



In a nutshell, went to a party. Met a chick I had a crush on in 8th grade. Super hot. One of the first times I took acid. Best sex I ever had. Ended up laying on the floor butt naked with a full moon outside so the room was lit up blue. This song started playing. Holy. Fucking. Shit.

That is all

Cornell was influential enough that I think this thread being maintained here is completely justified.

What has been really indicative of his talent and ability are all the tributes he has received from such a wide variety of performers in the music industry.

Chris's death has probably hit me harder than almost any other celebrity.
Lemmy made me genuinely sad, but this is even worse. Lemmy died as the sort of uncompromising raging son of bitch he was.
Chris...well the way he went out and the circumstances around his death make it seem very premature.

I told some guy at work Chris Cornell died and he said who. I said the guy from soundgarden. He had been playing like a stone every week and didn't know who the guy was.

This was more then music.. 90's grunge defined most of our youths, I can speak for myself, this wasn't so much my cup of tea but it didn't matter, we didn't have a choice, it was just part of life growing up a teen in the early mid 90s.. when I was hyper id rage out to Guns & Roses, when I wanted my own space I become a loaner and chilled out to Pearl Jam.

Over the last wk just been listening to the classics on repeat, crazy how it just brings you back.. Was so different back then, things were just real, raw emotions, kids could grow up like kids should, fight, get in trouble, do fucked up shit and learn from it.. Its like the last of the old school cats is the way I saw it.. Everything changed in the snap of a finger, saw it w/my own eyes when I went back to visit my little bro in the wrestling room, 4yr difference and you would think it was 25yrs, didn't even recognize where I was..

Anyway, cheers to this man, believe this thread should be a tribute to the 90s Grunge Era as a whole, since he was a pioneer of that time... couple classic fav's :heart: :thunder:

This is probably my favorite Cornell song and I really love the video.

What really kills the greats? I'm so sick of these generic Rockstar deaths. There has to be more to the story, why do they keep dying like this? The shitty musicians live forever or they just tour their old material until they turn 70. What gets to the greats?
