6: "Outside" (Paramount Theater, Seattle, 1992)
A & M Initial Live Soundgarden Live, Louder than live, was a relatively low key affair and, to date, has not been reissued. Again directed by Kevin Kerslake, their second edition in the concert, Motorvision, was a significantly higher title that won the Quartet in Seattle just like Badmotorfinger started them on the international scene. Recorded in an absolutely surprised city play at the Paramount Theater, Soundgarden is in electrical form, featuring a top-of-the-line list of "Jesus Christ Posse", "Robbers and Bulldozers" and truly fantastic "Surprised".
5: "Black Rain" (Conan, 2010)

3: & # 39; Rage Cage & # 39; (Later … With Jules Holland, 2012)
In addition to their widely welcomed Live at Letterman performance, Soundgarden also dared to turn it into a dazzling mini set for ever popular Later … With Jules Holland, in November 2012. They made a turning point on King AnimalShe "wore too long" that night, but their true explosive device BadmotorfingerRising Cage & # 39; is the one we will talk about for decades to come.
2: "Black hole sun" (Live from artists Den, 2013)

With its sleepy, "White albums"– a beautiful atmosphere and a glowing ensemble, the hit of the band's signature has indefinable quality that makes it timeless. It's always a song Chris Cornell and the soldiers are putting their heart and soul in the stage, so it's no surprise that the performance Soundgarden turned into their Live from artists Den Extravagance is one of the most memorable of all.
1: "Spoonman" (Del Mar Fairgrounds, Del Mar, 1996)
One of the most beautiful strange monsters of Soundharden was their affection for songs with incredible signatures over time. Indeed, every number of selections here, from "Take It to the Snake" (played in 9/4) to "Black Rain" (in 9/8), illustrates this point. However, their most daring, pace-defying set-piece, Super knownSpoonman, is depleted from 7/4 to 3/4 (during a spoonful of solo) and returns to a slightly less hair 4/4. Soundgarden loved the challenge of performing the song and became the peak of their 1993 set. This version, from their Del Mar Fairgrounds exhibition 1996, appeared Live on I-5, certainly ranks among the best in his career.
