If you’ve ever tuned into a modern rock station for more than a minute or two, you’ve probably realized two of many things: 1) Every DJ sounds half-drunk and 2) The stations plays “Black Hole Sun” about once an hour.
For those of you on the outside of the inside joke that was the 90’s, Soundgarden (the older grunge brother of Nirvana who could never quite match their success) hit it really big with their 1994 masterpiece Superunknown. Among the handful of rock hits off the album was the mega-single “Black Hole Sun”, which came complete with an fantastically disturbing video.
So, where does this classic rock hit fit in with the young, hip Air Core Yell blog? Well, for starters, Soundgarden is one of my favorite bands, and I stumbled across an awesome remix on Soundcloud, which I had to share with the universe.
The slow-crawling song comes alive with an awesome beat from DJ Zebra (a soon-to-be household name?), and Chris Cornell’s vocals are noticeably more epic. The good news here is that 35-year-old ‘Garden fans can have something for their playlist that will make their unhip girlfriends shake their respective groove things.
