One of the biggest rock bands out of Seattle, Soundgarden was formed in 1984 by singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, and bassist Hiro Yamamoto. Matt Cameron became the bandís full-time drummer in 1986, while bassist Ben Shepherd became a permanent replacement for Yamamoto in 1990.
One of the creators of Grunge and the first to sign to a major label, they rose to stardom along with Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains in the early 90s.
After achieving massive success with 1994ís Superunknown, the band decided to call it quits three years later.
