This is such a cool song - I don't think it's like most of the others on "Down On The Upside" - a little more 'melodic', maybe, on CD, & yet still hard-rocking live!!! The video is an amazing 'theatrical' showcase for Chris Cornell, kind of a departure for Soundgarden videos at the time (it was also considered somewhat controversial at the time - wow, how things have changed over the years... : ); I see the YouTube video on this page; it's definitely worth checking out!!!

Use at most three hashtags in your comment to connect the song with a topic (i.e. #live or #workout). It must contain at least one letter. You can view a toplist for every tag.
