A Great Album of the 1990’s, ‘Superunknown’ Turns 22 (VIDEO)
This week marks the 22nd anniversary of the release of Soundgarden’s Superunknown. Released on March 8, 1994, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts, went on to sell around 4 million copies in the U.S., and spawned several singles that still get massive airplay today (“My Wave”, “Fell on Black Days”, “Black Hole Sun”, “Spoonman”, “The Day I Tried to Live”). Shark calls it the best album of the 1990’s. I don’t know about that, but it is definitely a monster.
With 15 songs clocking in at 70 minutes, Superunknown is definitely a Seattle sonic assault on your senses. This was a great band’s breakout album.
