I remember the one and only time I saw Soundgarden. It was 1993 and they played Wembley Stadium, opening up for Faith No More and Guns N' Roses.
After three songs, the band was booed off the stage. The music was much too plodding and "grungy" for the rap-metal audience of FNM and the glittzy spectacle of GNR. Chris COrnell didn't move an inch during those three songs and the band was clearly out of their comfort zone.
