It's always been in my top 3, next to Head Down and Pretty Noose. Lately, though, Nothing to Say has shot up my list and I got sick of Pretty Noose due to listening to it way too many times, so my list sort of shifted. It changes all the time, but I think it's safe to say Head Down will be in the top 3 no matter how I feel. Like Suicide and 4th of July are both also normally really high on the list, but I've been kinda off of Superunknown for a little bit.

It took me years to really get into Head Down but it's been a top 3 candidate ever since, too. Lots of Ben songs work that way though.

It's weird to say the first song I heard from Soundgarden was on Rockband 2. I had originally heard Black Hole Sun as an orchestrated version by a school group and wanted to know the song they covered. I found it but never listened to it until it showed up on Rockband, that was so amazing. My friend and I played the crap out of the song over and over. Haha.

So my simple answer would've been "Black Hole Sun".

Way to go dude! If you haven't already, do yourself a favour and start with the Screaming Life stuff. Amazingly heavy to this very day.

Let me get my list um here it is:

Jesus Christ Pose
Blow Up The Outside World
Searching with My Good Eye Closed
Rhinosaur
Ty Cobb(funniest song to me)
Outshined
Rusty Cage
My Wave
Pretty Noose
Fell On Black Days
Roam A Thousand Years Wide
Burden In My Hand
Beyond The Wheel
Black Rain
Black Hole Sun
Damn, I was cute back when I was around here 5 years ago. :lol: Alright, here's a more up to date list:

1. Blow Up The Outside World
2. 4th of July
3. Beyond the Wheel
4. Jesus Christ Pose
5. Pretty Noose
6. The Day I Tried to Live
7. Black Hole Sun

10. By Crooked Steps

So many good songs, especially from King Animal. Too many to choose from; however, this list is a more realistic song instead of trying to be in with the others here. ;)

To put a top ten together for Soundgarden is a challenge -- but here goes:
1 Drawing Flies
2 Slaves and Bulldozers
3 Fourth of July
4 Tighter and Tighter... sleep tight for me Chris :cry:
5 Outshined
6 Gun
7 Kick Stand
8 Hunted Down
9 Jesus Christ Pose
10 Room 1000 Years Wide
Something like that list, anyway. I'd also consider: Black Hole Sun, My Wave, Rhinosaur, Holy Water
I miss the comfort in being sad.
