“Emerging from the Seattle scene in the ’80s and ’90s as one of the leading alternative rock bands of an era, Soundgarden transcended its grunge roots and has become an iconic rock band with its own distinctive and ferocious vocal style. Now, as they reunite for a new album of original material, we welcome Chris Cornell and the band to SiriusXM where they can meet and hear from some of their lucky fans.”
