Released in 1994, Soundgarden’s fourth studio album, Superunknown, found the Seattle grunge band breaking into the mainstream—debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and following it up with the No. 1 single and MTV smash hit“Black Hole Sun.” Clocking in at just over 70 minutes, Superunknown showcases Chris Cornell’s soaring four-octave vocals, and Kim Thayil’s massive guitar riffs with the hits“Spoonman” and“Fell on Black Days”—and still stands as one of the greatest hard rock records of the‘90s.
To support their breakout album, Soundgarden embarked on a massive world tour, at the end of which Cornell was diagnosed with severely strained vocal cords. This particular vintage design is taken from the European leg of that Superunknown 1994 Tour and features a psychedelic spiral reminiscent of a certain hit single.
