Tribute to Chris Cornell

When people think of the grunge music of the 90’s its usually Pearl Jam and Nirvana that come to mind, however the influence of Soundgarden and their front man Chris Cornell should not be overlooked. Soundgarden had an indescribable sound, part punk, part classic rock, with a lead vocalist who’s voice and presence were one of a kind.
Here are some of our favorite Chris Cornell songs: Spoonman (Soundgarden), Hunger Strike (Temple of the Dog) and a solo version of Nothing Compares 2U.

 

 

 

Songs of the year

In our best of 2106 episode we gave out awards for best song of the year.  Skip chose Closer by The Chainsmokers ( ft. Halsey) and Josh picked Soundcheck by Catfish and the Bottlemen. Neither of us had ever heard the others song before ( which is quite incredible).
