2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Superunknown, the pivotal album from Soundgarden that changed alternative rock.
Via A&M Records and Universal Music Enterprises, this deluxe gatefold version features two LPs. Featuring the original 16 tracks.
Soundgarden is diving back into Superunknown with this set and other multi-disc, rarities-packed special editions of their breakthrough 1994 album. The album debuted at No. 1 when it was originally released and has been certified five times platinum by the RIAA in the United States, selling about nine million copies worldwide. It remains Soundgarden's most successful album and in 2003, was ranked No. 336 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The album was ranked number 38 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Albums of the Nineties, and No. 5 on Guitar World magazine's Top 10 list of Guitar Albums of 1994.
Superunknown catapulted Soundgarden into "known" status after getting some attention with 1990's Badmotorfinger. Sputnik Music calls it "an essential early-'90s album, often grouped with Nirvana's Nevermind and Pearl Jam's Ten." Memorable tracks include the title track, "Spoonman," "Fell On Black Days" and "Black Hole Sun," Soundgarden's biggest hit.
"Soundgarden was far beyond the general feelings and talents of the 'grunge' scene; their sound was darker, spookier, and more complex. And unlike the beloved Kurt Cobain, this band had great singing AND guitar work. The theme of this album is along the lines of a band's journey into stardom and the perils, decisions, and prices to be paid for the high cost of fame." — Sputnik Music, March 1994
