Song of the Day: Soundgarden - The Day I Tried to Live

Because I was enthralled with "grunge" thanks to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Screaming Trees, etc, buying Superunknown was a no-brainer. I didn't know Soundgarden's earlier albums, and this one was much heavier than any albums by those aforementioned bands, despite "Black Hole Sun" becoming a huge pop hit. I'm not sure today's song of the day epitomizes the heaviness, but it definitely showcases Chris Cornell's pipes, which unfortunately have not been put to good use in his post-Soundgarden career. Thank god for reunions?
