Back when Soundgarden were labeled a metal band by the media (AIC as well at the time), suddenly after Teen Spirit they were grunge.

I was never the biggest Soundgarden fan, but this got me I more than I expected. I listened the fuck out of Badmotorfinger and Ultramega OK for a little while in high school when all I had was a tape player, and then "blow up the outside world" did a brief stint as one of my favorite songs. But this was all in a very short, weird, belated "rock history: grunge" phase around the middle of high school or whenever all the 1991 Seattle stuff was coming up on 10 years old. I dug Euophoria Morning quite a bit when it came out, but I can't say I've listened to it since then. I was stupidly excited for Audioslave, and then wildly disappointed (not cos they were bad but just cos my expectations had been so high). I hate doing the thing where I don't go listen to or revisit a band/artist til someone dies, but I've been doing a little of that lately.

I was too young to generally be a fan, but there were songs that smacked me around the face.

My partner is way too young, but the second I played Black Hole Sun, she got it.

I think this one is affecting a lot of folks because Cornell seemed on the exterior to be a guy who had his shit together. When a Cobain or Staley or Weiland passes away, its not as out of the blue and unexpected as this was.
Then when you look back you realize just how vast and varied his catalog was, you realize the impact the guy had over the last quarter century was pretty significant though often understated, kind of like his personality.
I was always a fan, though they weren't in my top 5 bands or anything, but Badmotorfinger did make my Cobbler top 11 albums list recently.
Revisiting some of the stuff, there are some absolute gems that aren't widely known on top of all the well known material.

Back in the 90s when I was going through my mega Soundgarden is the best band ever phase I remember collecting any magazine that had interviews with the band. I know Cornell touched upon loneliness and wanting to be alone a lot in those interviews. It's actually what made me relate to him. I know years later I'd read about his alcohol problem and it wasn't until a few years ago where I learned he did have issues with drugs. But his addictions were low key. There was an interview I watched on YouTube with Cornell where he looked out of it and sounded kind of out of it. It was weird.

I loved Soundgarden and saw them a couple years ago and this hit me so hard. Badmotorfinger is my 6th favorite album and Superunknown is up there too.

Hewson has a great point about it hitting hard because he seemed like he had everything together. He'd obviously gone through a lot of shit in his life (Andy Wood, depression, drug addiction, etc.) but it seemed like he'd gotten through it and was genuinely happy. And he wasn't and it hurts to realize that.

It sucks to lose an artist/person like Chris. I suppose for an artist to flourish, they sometimes have to channel their dark side. Like what was mentioned earlier, Chris appeared to have his shit together. It's pretty fuckin' eerie to think about all of the big time performers who have succumbed to drugs, be they prescribed or "from the street". Yes, Chris didn't OD, but drugs did play a huge part in his decision to take his own life.
