Listen: Soundgarden – Black Rain

I love the Internet. I really do. Because not only does it provide me with endless amounts of naked women doing insane things with footballs and ferrets but also because it provides us with music from our favorite bands a lot earlier than expected. Case in point: We got the new Soundgarden song, “Black Rain.”

The song really isn’t new, per se, but just unreleased. It was recorded back in 1991 but just never made it into public. Until now. Down below, you can check out the song via a radio rip from 107.7 The End in Seattle, WA. What’s the song sound like? Well it was recorded during the Badmotorfinger sessions which means it’s amazing.

The band is releasing a new greatest hits album called Telephantasm – A Retrospective on September 28th and that’s when the song will be officially released. It’ll also be available on the new Guitar Hero game, Warriors of Rock, which is also in stores on the 28th. Also, the band’s album is teaming up with GH so that if you pre-order Warriors, you’ll get the album for free. So you might wanna consider that. But for now, just hit play down below and get taken back to the early 90′s.
