Yes the full lineup of Temple Of The Dog reunited Tuesday night in L.A. to play “Hunger Strike,” and the high-school-you is flashing back to beautiful young EdVed in the tall grass and shitting its pants. (If the high school you is the now-you, Temple Of The Dog was a supergroup comprising members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden; Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were bands that wore a bunch of flannel.) Add that to this video of Nirvana doing “School” at their legendary headlining Reading set (from the DVD of the performance due out next month), and Alice In Chains holding #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Check My Brain” (Jerry Cantrell came out at that Temple reunion gig, too) and it’s been a really good week for 1992! Let’s all rent Singles and compare Docs this weekend and call each other slackers.

Get in the mood with this video of Temple Of The Dog Tuesday (which only really required Chris Cornell to get onstage at a Pearl Jam show, since the band was Chris, Stone, Eddie, Jeff, and then Matt Cameron who is conveniently situated in camp PJ), followed by Jerry In Chains jamming on “Alive”:

Both videos come courtesy of EW.com. Only a Citizen Dick reunion could get me more pumped. Alice In Chains will be on Conan 10/30, and also can be seen checking their brain below:

And from the forthcoming Bleach reissue…

    Why didn’t EdVed have Ralf Nader sing we didn’t start the fire it was always turning while the world swas burning instead?

    God damn. The “School” video still makes Nirvana seem like the coolest band ever to me.

  8. That amazon.com exclusive shit is misleading…Nirvana are you reading this? I think they should take it down.

  9. I still wear my lo-cut docs. never even gave em a break. whos out of fashion now people that talked shit for the last 12 years?

  10. yo’re still out of fashio dude lo-is gay

  11. I never gave up on my Docs either but the quality has gone way downhill since the 80s/90s

  12. best part : the awesomely off-key guy in the audience trying to sing along to hunger strike. specifically around :38. oh, and 1:30. the whole time really. ouch.

    • I was just going to comment about how the video is like a bad campfire karaoke session. as opposed to a good campfire karaoke session.

    (jeremy spoken…in class todaaaayyyyyyyeeee!)
    who! who! who! who! who! who! who! who!

  14. Nirvana’s Bleach is better than Appetite For Destruction. There. I said it.

  15. There are definitely a lot of new bands with a 90s feel to them. So yes, a 90s throwback is dawning upon us.

    Synth has been bled dry already. At least we’ll have real guitar, which is always a good thing to my ears.

    Why can’t Chris Cornell stop pretending he’s relevant and just cash in on a Soundgarden reunion already? No one cares about his shitty mid-life crisis solo albums. Sludgy guitars and high-pitched screaming is all we want. More Badmotorfinger less Gap-ad electro-crap.
