Superunknown is widely regarded as a fan-favorite from the beloved collection of Soundgarden albums over the years, but ranking the individual songs on this powerhouse record is certainly a challenge. But it was a task we were up for as we celebrate 25 years of Superunknown and the incredible music we still love to play on The Rock of Seattle today.

 

The album itself was recorded right here in the Jet City at Bad Animals Studio, with all members contributing freely to the creative process. Although Soundgarden had built a massive regional following with the release of their first three albums, Superunknown was a springboard into the mainstream, even snagging a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album of 1994.

 

And now for the near-impossible process of ranking these massive musical successes: 

 

1. Black Hole Sun

 

2. Spoonman

 

3. Fell on Black Days

 

4. The Day I Tried To Live

 

5. Superunknown

 

6. My Wave

 

7. Limo Wreck

 

8. 4th Of July

 

9. Let Me Drown

 

10. Kickstand

 

11. Fresh Tendrils

 

12. Half

 

13. Head Down

 

14. Mailman

 

15. Like Suicide​

 

Happy Rocking,
