After years of being unhappy with the way their debut album sounded, Soundgarden has announced an expanded and remixed version of 'Ultramega OK.'
The soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's 1992 movie is being reissued with an extra disc of demos and other songs.
'Badmotorfinger' was Soundgarden's third album and the heaviest of the trio of Seattle albums released in late-1991.
'Badmotorfinger' will be re-released in four formats, including a seven-disc Super Deluxe Edition.
They might not be the first band you think of when you hear the word "grunge," but Soundgarden transcended Seattle in just about every possible way.
Following the rampant success of 1994's 'Superunknown,' Soundgarden released a darker, self-produced album in 1996 and it (temporarily) served as their swan song.
Before the grunge explosion, members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam joined forces to pay tribute to a fallen friend. It was only in retrospect that the album became a hit.
We can't believe that bands like the Smiths and the Cure keep getting overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
While the wave of mainstream grunge crashed after just a couple years, the impact is still visible everywhere.
Soundgarden helped define the grunge sound, but they didn't break into the mainstream until they evolved from it on 1994's dark and transcendent 'Superknown.'
