Soundgarden to Reunite in 2010

In what many music fans will see as the first gift of the New Year, it looks like Soundgarden is going to reunite. Chris Cornell put forth on his Twitter feed: "The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Knights of the Soundtable ride again!" has the same message so it looks legit.

This is great. I never got to see Soundgarden back in the day, but I rank Superunknown as one of a handful of my 'desert island albums,' where every track is excellent, the overall vibe is top-notch and I can listen to the CD over and over again without getting tired of it.

Of course they have loads of other great stuff too but that massive album and the Temple of the Dog CD (not Soundgarden but close enough for me) are the ones I go back to.

Anyway, if this is legit and they do some local shows, I am all over it, rover!

Happy New Year, everyone.

I'm with you on this, though I did see Soundgarden a couple times back in the day. I lean more Louder Than Love when I reach for them nowadays, but I have absolutely no problem spinning Superunknown either. I hope this turns our well!

Wow! A few hours into 2010 and I'm starting to like it! A Soundgarden reunion would make it awesome!
