638 Badmotorfinger by Soundgarden


Release year
Terry Date

With 1991's breakthrough Badmotorfinger, Soundgarden made heady metal for the alternative rock crowd without sacrificing volume or riffage

Author & Special Guests

Badmotorfinger sits in the middle of the Soundgarden discography at an interesting crossroads. With new bass player Ben Shepherd on board, the band expanded upon their Black Sabbath meets Black Flag twist on metal with precision riffs and rhythms that integrate odd time signatures and alternate guitar tunings. While other bands were relegated to in-the-know hardcore fandom, thanks to the once-in-a-generation vocals of Chris Cornell, Soundgarden began their ascent as a commercial entity on MTV and mainstream radio.
