Hear, hear.

Thankfully I can't hear it from the office, but that song is this wonderfully dirgy, post-apocalyptic little nugget of pure noise goodness. I can't imagine how Evanescence could POSSIBLY do it justice.

What I want to know is, WHY? If Amy Lee wanted to sing Soundgarden, I could see something higher and more focused - say, "Outshined" - working better.

It's an awesome tune, yeah. The problem with it for me is that it follows immediately after "Fresh Tendrils," so by association it's merely pretty badass. :lol:

I like Evanescence (obviously) but I agree, this cover sucks. To be honest though, I can't stand Soundgarden anyway. I could just never get into them.

IMHO, Evanescence's cover of Korn's "Thoughtless" was really cool, as was their cover of Smashing Pumpkins' "Bullets and Butterflies" (at least I think that's the name of that tune).

You need to listen to Badmotorfinger and Superunknown on repeat until you come around, man. I project it'll take about two listens to each. :yesway:

Honestly, I was never a HUGE Soundgarden fan back in the day, but they're one of those bands that I've come to appreciate in a huge way since. Easily one of the better bands my musical generation put together. :yesway:

I hate everything about this band.
Barring the occasional white supremicist group, I don't think I've ever heard anything that made me want to murder the guys who wrote/performed it. :shrug:
