Soundgarden – “Live To Rise” Video

Live To Rise” is the first new Soundgarden studio song in a decade and a half, and it shows up on the soundtrack to The Avengers. So you’d hope that the video would feature Kim Thayil fighting Loki or whatever. Alas, the clip goes the time-honored route of showing the band playing in an airplane hanger, interspersed with footage from the movie that you’ve already seen in the trailers. There is a moment where some sort of glowing wormhole opens up behind the band, but not much comes of it. Watch it below.

The Avengers soundtrack is out now. In other Avengers news, my friend Zach Baron’s State of the Summer Blockbuster address at Grantland is essential reading.
