Song of the Day

Soundgarden- Let Me Drown

The opening track of Soundgarden’s classic album Superunknown. Any album worth its salt has a great opener, the kind of track that immediately grabs the listener’s attention and leaves them needing to hear more. This one certainly fits the bill, as it contains all the ingredients that made Soundgarden a great band: that twisting rock riff, searing guitar leads, thunderous drumming and, of course, Chris Cornell’s powerful voice cutting through the chaos. That “Yeah!” he wails at 0:42…just awesome. I could waste more words trying to describe this track, but sometimes the dumbed-down version is the most effective. And in this case, that’s as simple as saying “this song just fucking rocks.” Enjoy
