[lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm] put its mark on this year’s Lollapalooza, closing the nation’s biggest music festival by cranking out one grunge classic after another.
The band also dug deep into its back catalog, pushing well beyond hits like “Spoonman” and “Black Hole Sun.”
Frontman [lastfm]Chris Cornell[/lastfm] looked like he came straight out of the ’90s, with a long curly mane and a loose T-shirt replacing the muscular, close-cropped look of his recent [lastfm]Audioslave[/lastfm] days.
Cornell joked, “This is the millionth time we’ve played Lollapalooza,” before breaking into deep cuts like “Searching With My Good Eye Closed” and “Flower.”
Playing only their third show since reuniting in April, Soundgarden were loud enough to be heard clear across Grant Park, even during a competing set from [lastfm]Arcade Fire[/lastfm].
Earlier this summer, the band announced that a new best-of collection called Telephantasm will be included with the purchase of the new Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock video game, which is due out on September 28.
