My wave

I think this song deserves more credit than it gets
—Guest Justin

Black Hole Sun Number One?

the Badmotorfinger album was truly an epic masterpiece and worthy of it's own top 10 song list...that being said I would have excluded Rusty Cage and Black Hole Sun at the expense of Slaves & Bulldozers, Mind Riot, or Holy Water from Badmotorfinger; Like Suicide from Superunknown (with slight bias towards the acoustic version released on the Song from the Superunknown EP), Hands All Over from Loud Love; Rhinosaur or Burden in my Hand from Down on the Upside; and Birth Ritual as a Miscellaneous selection.
—Guest Nude Dragons

slaves and bulldozers!!

Slaves and bulldozers is missing that top 10...in sane vocals and riffs...incredible heard live
—Guest GB

What about My Wave?

By far one of my favorites from them. There are totally enough for a top 20!

My 2 Cents...

Great article, however there is no way Black Hole Sun is their best track! It's a great song, but lacks some of the power and the glory that is Soundgarden. I'll look for "Slient Lucidity" atop your Queensryche top track list. ;) Seriously though, Outshined may be at the top of my list. My top 10 also includes "Drawing Flies," "Mind Riot," and Superunknown's "Like Suicide." Lyrics: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/s/soundgarden/drawing+flies_20128150.html
—Guest Paul

Maybe we should start doing a top 20...

How about "Searching With My Good Eye Closed" or "The Day I Tried To Live" ???
—Guest E. Diddy

Great list, but...

...no "Burden In My Hand" or "Birth Ritual". Truly awesome tracks.
—Guest Geoff

Room A Thousand Years Wide

One of the best rock songs EVER! I agree that the song is underrated, yet I'm glad it didn't become a "hit". If it did, I would be sick of it by now, like some of the overplayed hit SG songs.
—Guest Helen

Big Dumb Sex

I liked all your picks, but I think this song is really great too. People don't understand it's a satire.
—Guest Tony

"come together with your hands...."

I really love Spoonman. But I also like Black Hole Sun a lot.
—Dorothy
