A fantastic hard rock band which broke into the mainstream in the early nineties. Much like Alice in Chains (another great band), Soundgarden were tossed in the "grunge" crowd due to hailing from Seattle, but had almost no tie sound-wise to the genre whatsoever. Unfortunately, also much like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden were overshadowed by mediocre acts like Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger = PURE FUCKING ROCK AND ROLL!
A kids' show that aired in the late 90's that was about dinosaurs mutated by aliens that travel to the present day to fight their also mutated velociraptor enemies who want to accelerate global warming to make the planet a haven for reptiles.
With them was one of the aliens, an officer of the intergalactic law wanting to bring the space criminal who mutated them and the raptors to justice. Also accompanying them was a crazy redneck conspiracy theorist who made them jet bikes by combining parts of used cars in his junkyard with advanced extra terrestrial technology.
Unless there is something horribly wrong with you, you've probably experienced an explosive orgasm from the sheer awesomeness by the time you've made it to this part of the definition.
Somethin's really rockin'
On planet number 3
Modern man's got prehistoric company
A colossal fossil feud, unlike anything before
Between the reckless raptors
And the Extreme Dinosaurs!
Tails the snap like thunderclap
Talkin', stalkin' raptor trap!
The crash and smash Jurassic four
Veloci-tossin' to the max
They'll fossilies em in their tracks!
Alice in Chains are definitely in the top five bands to ever walk the earth. Although labeled as "grunge" (due to the fact that they came from Seattle), they had a sound more reminiscent of metal. The EP's they released between albums were composed of emotional acoustic ballads.
That over hyped two chord band Nirvana could never even dream of reaching the musical godliness of Alice in Chains.
