Hailed as grunge innovators, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a generation. In the ’80s and ’90s, its punk ethos, coupled with a brutal metal soundscape and Chris Cornell’s ravenous roar, seduced the masses hungry for something new. Early indie releases, including seminal EP Screaming Life and Grammy®-nominated album Ultramega OK, quickly collected a dedicated indie following as the band toured on both sides of the Atlantic.
