Soundgarden - Superunknown reissue

This is the year that Superunknown, the album that transformed Soundgarden from promising grunge mainstays to king-shit rock gods, turns 20. And the band is marking the occasion in exactly the way you’d expect: With a pile of reissue releases. Two deluxe reissue versions of the album are out 6/3, and they’re set to include rare demos and rehearsal recordings, among other long-lost bonus material. Meanwhile, the band will re-release the album on a limited-edition set of five 10″ records on Record Store Day, 4/19. (They’ll miss the actual 3/8 anniversary by a few months, but whatever.) They’re teasing all those repackagings by sharing a rehearsal version of “The Day I Tried To Live,” in which you can sort of hear the song coming together. It’s weirdly compelling. Listen below.

Hey, can we also get a 20th-anniverary reissue of The Downward Spiral? That came out the same day, and there are a million remixes and B-sides that could be thrown in.

  2. Trent put out a 10 year anniversary version of TDS with a second disc of demos and b-sides. I believe he’s focusing on a reissue of The Fragile.

  3. Man, they really gotta start playing “Limo Wreck” live, that’s probably the best non-single on this fantastic record.

  4. Really cool to hear the song come together.

  5. Both Superunknown and TDS were both the albums for me in the 90s (they just so happen to come out at the same time). I’m super excited to see the reissue of this.

  6. Nice song!
