Soundgarden was formed in Seattle in 1984 by lead guitarist Kim Thayil, bassist Hiro Yamamoto, drummer Scott Sundquist (replaced by Matt Cameron in 1985) singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell. Within a few years, Soundgarden became one of the leading bands of the grunge movement that revolutionized music during the 1990s. Combining dark metal riffs with elements of punk and psychedelia, they brought hard rock into the alternative music scene. They signed with the Sub Pop label and released two EPs, "Screaming Life" in 1987 and "Fopp" in 1988, soon after recording their debut album "Ultramega OK." In 1990, Soundgarden signed with A&M records, making them the first grunge band to sign with a major label. Their studio album "Louder Than Love" and the increased attention due to signing with a major label led to a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance for "Ultramega OK." Here the band went through another line-up change. Yamamoto departed and Jason Everman took over bass duties. Everman was soon replaced by Hunter "Ben" Shepherd. In 1991, MTV selected the track "Outshined" from the album "Badmotorfinger" as a Buzz Clip, leading to heavy rotation on the channel and longtime fan Axl Rose invited the band to open for Guns N' Roses on tour. Soundgarden released the LP "Superunknown" in 1994, cementing their legendary grunge status. The album debuted at Number One and contained the breakthrough single, "Black Hole Sun." That same year, "Black Hole Sun" won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance, while another single, "Spoonman," won Best Metal Performance. The follow up, 1996's "Down on the Upside" debuted at Number Two. The band broke up in 1997, with members leaving to pursue other projects, occasionally reuniting to play shows until Soundgarden's official return in 2012, when they released their sixth album, "King Animal."
