  1. "Kickstand," "Outshined," and "Rusty Cage" are my favorite Soundgarden tunes. I also really like the song that Chris Cornell did on the Singles soundtrack.

  2. Seasons was the name of that song. All good songs. I have other favorites. Perhaps I should make a list of my favorite Soundgarden songs as my next post.
