We put up a pole on twitter to see what sound garden songpeople would want to hear and the results are as follows, and the reasonwhy I did it was because I honestly have been listening to super unknownfor the past like month. Like non stop, I don't know I've just been on the verybig super unknown. Kick I'm not sure why man to me it is yeah but hear theresults so coming in fourth place in last place with nine point threepercent was the title track Super Unknown and yes, I did try to lobby forthis one, but it fails, but in third place was it was it's a great, soabsolutely in third place was the day I tried to live with twenty point. Fourpercent and coming in a close second place, was black hole, Sun with thirtythree point, three per cents, which I honestly thought this song was going towin, but the winner with thirty seven per cent of the votewas fell on black days, which is what we're talking about and as I mentioned,it is from sound garden off the album super unknown and it came out in onethousand nine hundred and ninety four is written by Chris Cornell case. Youguys don't know who Chris Cornell is. I don't know what to tell you, but youshould check into that but buck. What are some of your memories of this song?It was the the title man fell on Black Days Right. I used to mess like they had otherblack in the other, the other, so black hole sun right, let's tick it back.Let's take this back. My buddy done giving me bad motor finger and Ifreaking love that album right and I bought this album like the first week.It was out- and I was digging deep into this album and I just love andeverything black ole son came out, but Bah Blah. I couldn't when I signed thissong, I didn't hear, fell on black days. I heard it fell on dark days and that'show I sang it in a fair dark days, and I never got it out of myhead that...

...fell on black days was Taleri. Is thatweird? Is that weird? Not People do know, people hear things and then- andthey do it. You know a certain way for a long time and then nxne. It's likewait. What I just got myself away from the black hole sin I was just like yougot to name another, so a black in it like just I just started singing, and Ithink it goes better. You Sing it with dark days. I think it sounds better andI'll sing it again. I tilono her thing when I do my Karok Brow, you knoweverybody, and everybody knows it's listening to that. I think this is mysix or seven podcast right. I do my Karaoy and I will never do Chris Cornow, because Chris Cornell is in another stratosphere of singers, and Irefuse to do him but I'll. Stop You I'll eve on stop singing right now, butyeah, I always say dark days, but this song Igot into it man, I just it's one of those like you're just chewing and just listening.You know you're going for a walk or you're just like in your room and justlike all right. I want to learn how to play guitar. That's what I startedlearning how to play Guitar- and you know it's just like this- is whatmusic's all about and yeah. I fell in love with these guys pretty early andthere one of my favorites and this song. It's always been a been something thatI have special in my heart. Man. Definitely Yeah Yeah. I N. I a I never I never said dark days,but I remember this song very well right. I mean I still listen to it. Mysister actually got this album off of I forget if it was B, m g or Columbia S I,for I forget, I forget which one verybody got this. I think everybodyhas this fucking album dude. I I want o o yeah. I mean it's well, it's soldwhat nine million copies so yeah a lot of lot. People had this album and Iremember mar generate. I remember when we got because I was you know a bityounger than and my sister was the one who had the. I think it was ColumbiaHouse, but she had you know the account or I guess my parents probably were theones who had the account. So we would get the nothe ten albums for like tencents or whatever, which is probably like, like eight thousand dollars, but I remember so she was like. Oh you wantto get a couple of albums. I was like okay, so then I wound up getting superunknown and then I wound up getting ten from Pearl Jam. So that's a that's apretty good start. I thought it's a good score, an and- and I think for methe memory I recall the most is like just listening to this song around newyears. I don't know why just line hanging in my room listening to thissong is like it's a cool tune, so that's a great way to bring in the NewYear listening to this uplifting tune, but yeah I mean I remember when it cameout and you know, have the album and still still listen to it, but now fell on black days. It's beenstreamed over eighty six million times on spoting sound garden has almost fivemillion monthly listeners. I think that number should be higher, so everybodylistened to them now. This song picked up number four on the billboard:Mainstream Rock tracks charge didn't get to the US hot one hundred, but andthat's fine. It doesn't need to now. How does this song compare to the othersongs? On the album? I mean this: Album is massive right. Super unknown hitnumber one on the billboard. Two hundred had five singles released offof it spoon man in January of ninety four the day I that's a great song. Theday I tried to live in April of ninety four black hole sun in May of ninetyfour, my wave in October of ninety four and then fell on black days in Januaryof ninety five. So this is the last single released off of that album, andthis also interesting note. This album came out the same day as the downwardspiral from nine inch nails. That's a pretty damn good day for albums to comeout home, wow right and, like I said before, this album sold nine millioncopies over nine min copies well wide...

...and in April of two thousand andnineteen rolling stone rank this album, ninth on their fifty greatest grungealbum's list, which is horse share, because this should be in the top three.It's I mean it's ten dirt and then super unknown. I don't I still, I stillkind of don't think ten is grund. I still think pro jams grunge, but peoplestill like to call them grown. So by that definition I would say ten. If youdon't want to call program Grun Jes fine, because I kind of don't do butthen I would say durs number one and then said Brun the on an anyway. They came out with spoon man right yeah,first Yep brow that song was awesome. Yeah I right come on a minute man, youplayed a e. Did he try to do the spoon thing? Didn't you? No, I know I neverdid the well. I did. The spoons is like randomly around a house probably toannoy my parents. I probably succeeded at that, but not not like to this song.Smoe come together with you play and save me It's good. I did so this I didtry. That was the one of the first songs. I tried learning on an drop D H.Guitar. Is it's just fun to play that Nice, nice yeah, but so the albumstarts out with. Let me drown good starting track. Then we get to my waveawesome tune then fell on black days. Will we we'll talk about that a bit moreobviously than mailman, which is quite an interesting song? It's good, butit's just interesting, we'll leave it at that. Then we get super unknown,which is an awesome song. I feel like I've been like saw as I was sing beforeI was listening to this album for the last like a couple weeks, I feel likeI've been focusing on that song and the one after it which is head down. I'vebeen listening to those like on repeat for the last like three weeks, but nicebe super on known man. That's super unknown his life. You know when, whenyou dig into the lyrics you know alive, and this super unknown. You know hesays if this isn't what you see it doesn't make you blind. If this doesn'tmake, you feel it doesn't mean you've died. This long is awesome, like I waskind of hoping that that's why I was lobbying for this one, but I was hopingwe could discuss is a bit more, but it's a cool tune. You know it's a talksabout life about the negative space you know like from like. If anybody outthere's like a creative designer, you know you have things that you see, butthen everything that you don't see is kind of called that negative space andI feel like the song kind of it's like their stuff everywhere. You know, andjust because you don't see something there, it doesn't mean there's nothingthere. I kind of I like that song a lot man, it's just kind of like a hopefulsong, but then we get head down. Oh boy, this song is great because it'salso about life, you know and then we he says we see you laugh. We see youdance. We take that away. Every day. We see you cry, we turn your head and thenwe slap your face and then he says bow down to live your life like this longas the pressing is fuck, but then he says head high. You've got to smile, so,even though, like this song is like spot on about adult hood right, howkind of like being an adult kind of beats? The creativity out of you andthe joy, it's like you kind of become like a miserable prick. I feel like youneed to hold on to that joy and that happiness and you need to smile andhold on to it. So I feel like, while this song, it's kind of like a coolchill song if you like, just focus on the music, but when you get to thelyrics, it's like man. This is kind of fucking depressing, but when you holdon to that one liner, he was like you know. You got a smile man, you know. Sothat's that's! That's that's my take away from fromhead down, but it's either way it's a great song. No it's great man and he'sa pellet dude. Well he's it's nice to have. I mean the go fromwhere we were at in the late S, with rock songs to get where we got inthe early s late in the mid. It's interesting it's a hundred and eightythree. You know I just think they just saw the dynamics of like that was justlike hair spray, booze and freaking girlsand then just got old and that John, we...

...just kind of like hey we're it'sdifferent out there. Now an there's. You know the Jones just broke in the S,it was just all differ. It was going all different directions and if youdidn't capture, you didn't capture your audience with something different you working to capture them, you knowand they came with something different and I true arness man. True, Oh yeah, Imean you had like that. Glam rock at that was now yeah, like you, like. Youwere saying it's girls, booze partying and that's pretty much it and theseguys were like. Well, not you know not. I re Gods, even a party, that's fine,but not everything is like that, so these guys kind of saw- maybe theseguys are roaming. Clearly I feel like Cornell was definitely like clinicallydepressed, but you know people in life deal with that. You know what I mean sofor them to you, know, talk about it and bring it out into theO, but I think it's awesome. You know get that conversation started. You knowdon't just party and have fun, because I guess what not everything is happytimes as they say. So. That's why I always appreciate music like this, but then ye get the black whole sun.Amazing too. It's I feel like it's interesting like how this super darksong became, like arguably they're, most popular song in the mainstreamright I mean I feel like if you ask somebody like a random fan, like heysound garden. What's you know? First, one that comes to mine, they'll,probably say a black hole sign and that's fine me it's a great song, butdefinitely the most popular one. But it's definitely like super dark spoonman. It was a song written about street performer artists. This spoon man whoalso performs on the song and this song also won the best metal performance ofthe ninety five grammes. So yeah, it's it's quite accomplished the men to get.Let me get limorge at tune the day. I try to live. I feel like the day I tryto live is a bit. It gets a bit misunderstood. I think Cornell himselfsaid it was like a hopeful song and it's about attempting to be normal andjust go out and be around other people. He said the day I tried to live moremeans. Like the day. I actually tried to open up myself. I feel, like somepeople misunderstand that song and the kind of take it as like a suicideletter, and it's not but great tune. Also, seven dust recently covered is kick stand comes after that and thenfresh tendrils, good song, fourth of July, if I feel like, if you look upthe granges song ever, this should be that song, this song, just like oozes,grunge right. It has like that killer, opening, riff it's like dirty and justlike Grimy, it's such a great song and it was the song- was basically about anacid trip that cornel that cornell had. Then we get half in it crazy how hejust set up like through all his albums, just in the way he passed and was justlike kind of just leaving bread crumbs all the way to the end, almost like aself fulfilling prophecy, and it was I watched. I was like doing some researchfor this. I watched a couple interviews of him and I was one I saw, and I thinkit was from two thousand and fourteen he was on. Was it k rock and I meangranted? I think they said it was like early in the morning. They were doingthe interview, but he just they're talking about you knowthat you know it's been twenty years since super unknown. They release thetwentieth anniversary, like special addition whatever, and he just I don'tknow a man like you just he just seems, and at this point he had already done aaudio slave to and he's you know a very accomplished musician, and he just youknow he just did not seem happy. Now like there was like something therewith him. That I mean, and obviously we know what happens. Depression is deepman, depression is deep, I mean he had it early on man, Oh yeah yeah, so it just how you overcome it and just I think itjust talking about it and he tried to try to find a way to express himselfthrough song. I oh yeah and that's he.

He said that as much a you know and you just can't go into a mind ofsomebody without like kind of living it and it's sad man, it's sad itjust and you don't even know the people that are affected to Corrig, that theycan have that that that safe face and smile and look at Robin Williams, YeahDude, so yeah I mean were, were this episode is very happy guys. I assureyou, but no I mean how does this song fit in I mean itfits in perfectly a lot of dark and deep stuff here. You know he's talkingabout a lot of these deep feelings, a lot of real feeling. So this song O on,is you know if you, if you call the album, you know instead of superunknown if he called the album fell on black days. I'd be like Oh, that's,appropriate, so fill in dark days thought sorry Felim Dart, I'm kidding, but I'll lyrically. Whatjumped out to you Bah about this song. Anything in particular, I mean justjust the beginning. Whatever you feared to come to life, whatever I thought offbecame my life right there. I just get you right that boot H, you know just what you fear is something that is no one knows your fear right, yeah! Noone knows what you fear, unless you tell somebody correct. So if you keep all your fears insideman that just becomes your life, so it's all about talking so about talkingabout what you, what your fear about, yeah I'm an! I have fear of publicspeaking. I have a fear of being an Internet with somebody, I'm a fear of you know what people think well talk about it and prove on it, andhe kept a lot of the shit in man and just never. He just didn't let you know people in that know him you know likewell, he I mean he said that you know one of the ways that he would kind ofcope with a lot of those things was, you know, writing about it, but I don'tknow I feel like something with him, though just went so deep or evenwriting about it. Wasn't I mean it. Obviously it wasn't enough, you know soand then it's your point right talking about it.That's one thing but then also like making sure you face it. You knowthat's the other thing so right, so he says you know whatsoever.I fear just come to life, an that. I to your point like that. That's how thesong starts. So everybody has fears and things like that. You know, but that'skind of what the song was about right. He said that the songs about this fearhe had about everything going well and then all of a sudden, you realize youare really scared and there's like no particular like events, you can pin thefeeling down to it's. Just you realize one day that everything in your life isfucked. You know, and I mean I've, so I for me personally, I talked aboutduring our our to en pilots episode was stressedout. Like I like last year, I kind of had of nowhere like started startedhaving this like horrible border line like crippling anxiety that I've neverhad before, like where I would have like random panic. Attacks like it washorrible, and I mean I'm sure maybe some of it was brought on by Ovid, andyou know the pandemic and everything like that. But I mean Er. I've beengoing to therapy too like trying to, because I'm trying to face it right,I'm trying to figure things out, because I do not want to continue downthat row, because I it's only going to get worse and you know going throughthat it s it sucks and I think, probably, over the years, I've had youknow anxiety, but you just kind of you're, so busy right, you just kind ofkeep pushing it off, pushing it off, and then here we are at a time when heyguests, what like there's nothing to do? You know your home, like you, can hangout with your family and stuff, but you don't have the diversion that you wouldif you had to go to work every day, at least for me- and you know, I'm workingfrom home, which has been great because...

I don't have to you know, go on. You know, go in the front lineslike a lot of people have to so for that M detherter. But at the same time,like those diversions, have pretty much kept a lot of this at bay. Just becauseit's you know haven't had the face it and deal with it and over the years I just kept pushing itback, pushing it back. Well, since every time I push it back, it justkeeps getting stronger and bigger, and then next thing you know I'm home and likefor the first like month or two of the pandemic. I was fine, you know and then and as he was saying like you just getto a point, you don't know exactly when, but all of the sudden it was just likewhat is this and it was. It was terrible for, like yeah, four months ofjust like every day, you're just like having this like weight on your chest.It's kind of tough to explain if you haven't, you know dealt with it butanxiety, fucking blows but but yeah. So I I definitely see exactly what he'stalking about in this song, but how about you, man, have you ever had tolike deal with anything like that where everything was like good and you know,and then everything just kind of goes to shit. Well, you know a lot of thingshappens. Man and if we really want to go deep, I mean we've had a real problem to get personal to have a child m and you go through life and you just you live ahappy life right. The Bum Umbo get married and now you're making adecision. Let's have a child and sometimes a doctor will sit you down and the world just stops and it's the weirdest guid the UNfucking moment in your life man when you're like Oh shit, life just happened. Yeah life justhappened. We went through this honeymoon wedding and by having a house and decorating and doing all that stuff going out withfriends and doing and now we're like all right. I love you, that's that's.That's the have a family together and it should be easy and then the world kind of crashed down, and I it was it was something I won'tgo into the whole details of things, but it was. It was one of those thingslike man, I'm so I'm so happy to have someone sostrong an we can do this together. Yeah- and you know we can. You know learn from this, not, I wouldeven say learn just having that family around us to get through, and I hate to say it. It wasn't one. It was multiple like bad news yeah, you know, and we get to that point when we actuallyhave it a beautiful kid. Oh, my Lord, I just saw a chart dude, I'm not lying.I'm gonna, I'm going to find it on my phone. Real, quick and it'll. Take metwo seconds because it's the last thing on my photo. It's my other than mydaughter, almost breaking her neck, jumping on the six thousand five hundred and seventydays since the birth, the till she turns eighteen at age at age, nine,three thousand two hundred and eighty five days till she turns eighteen yeah, that's real members, dude yeah, that'sreal numbers, so yeah. So everything was easy till it and it's not even like what can I do?What could I do? The doctors you know like modern medicine is the reason wehave two beautiful kids and I am...

...grateful for that and I can rate a whole book about our wholeexperience and that really humbled me and it made justjust made me just appreciate life and that's that's one thing that I'll neverforget that I went through, but I did fall on dark days. Man I definitely didyeah and it was it hurt man it hurt. I can only imagine yeah yeah. It'sdefinitely not easy for anybody to go through. Well. Thank you for sharingthat yeah. I'm sure that can help some other people out there too. Listening.You know if they're going through a similar situation, but yeah I mean, andthat's that's what the songs about right. You know it's, you know, that's why he wrote it. Youknow things are going well and then all of a sudden, you realize you just getscared. There's no particular Venuto things just boom. All the SUDDS, likeeverything just gets flipped on its head and yeah. That's that's what he was talking about here, but to put a little lighter tone. Whathappened to me, something that was going good, went bad.I remember when I first coached my first tea ball team and I had anassistant coach and I had a mother and I had all a bunch of support systemsand then we had the first game and I everybody had their job and then thesecond p. The second came everybody bailed on me. I didn't have anassistant coach. I didn't have a mother, I didn't have this. I didn't have that.Okay and you know what happened. I had field duty. I had to do the I had to dothe lines I forgot about that the kids got to practice. Oh this kick out aninjury Gott. This is this: Oh, my God I'll! Never forget that a I messed up,royally and and then I'll. Never forget the ladies look in her face when she's like here's, the slap forfor the kids to get their snacks. Please give that to me in the next fiveminutes. I go lady. I can't. Even I don't even know what's up and up anddown is down like like I'm like Terry Sifer, lady, Idon't even know what's going on yeah, you could take through snacks andshove it up your ass, because our touch kids and Sho, my God,it doesn't get even easier.

You know, get the wrenches out and just make sure that we can find tunethis this individual, but I mean from it's all side of the spectrum, and it'sjust you got to Mesh it. Well man, that's it yeah that is it nice. Well,then we should. We should definitely who do a coaching, podcast coaching,going right o how the coach, how to cut your kids,the best sign of a coach, a head coach, if you're an out if you're looking intoa practice- and you do not know who the head coaches daughter is or son- thatcoach is a good coach. That's Oh yeah yeah! You need to obviously work with all the kids. For sure I mean,if anything, you probably I feel like. I would probably spend less timeexactly with my kid at the field, because I'm going to be spending a lotof time with her off the field you know and at home, practicing there too alittle bit but but yeah. I sorry I ARA that's right! No! No! I do that a lot.I apologize unless the kids, a Dick. I don't ever want to see him again, butall right man fell on black days by sound garden. You think this is a legithit or a song gone wrong. Stop. Can we just leave it at that man yeah? This is it is my favorite song onthe album okay easily. Just you know they didn't over, exploit the song. The the video is tasteful. You know it'swell done. Cornell is amazing, you know he's just he just nails it. He nailsthis song. Can you imagine him trying to try out for a metal band or grudgeband? Like can imagine him being like the Second Guy, the third guy thatcomes on and then like the fourth and fifth guy had to listen to him. I didyou'd, leave im singing and then you're like YeahShit, I'm not gonna, I thinke he was. I think he was rankthe best rock singer, but he when I see that I guess I don't break down myfacts. I apologize but yeah he was. He was considered one of the best rock singers ever yeah. I don't I don'tdoubt it. I don't doubt I mean I mean you, don't even have to know a songthat he sings from you know anything from audio slave that God, Damn templethe freaking dogs yeah, like you know, you freaking make it when you're thefirst person singing and you're singing with Progam. Please, Oh yeah, you knowyeah he's A. I don't know I feel like. I go back and forth between him andMike Patten from faith. No More Patten has like an insane range. He can do allkinds of stuff he's such a unique vocalist and SOS cornel. There aretimes I think when cornel's voice does kind of get to me on occasion. It's notoften, but I mean...

...he's up there- lane Staley, obviouslyunbiased Burton C bell from fear factory. You got to listen to his voice because,obviously you know fear factor does a lot of screaming, but he can also singthere's songs where he does both the like sing and then scream later on.It's like he has a great screaming voice and then, when you listen themsing, I'm like Holy Shit. This guy has a phenomenal voice and he just hasgreat range so he's out there too. So yeah I mean any one of those guys I mean. Ah, so we were spoiled growingup man, you know having for Nell and Lane Staley. I think veteris a goodsinger, yeah mumbles a bit here and there, but Istill like his voice. A lot M cobain had that raspy voice, I mean he wasn't.You know he wasn't like the the best really anything ERE's. A good. Very Ithink of all of his trait is probably the best song writer that was probablyhis greatest attribute, but at the same time you made it accessible, which isalso important. So you know a lot of good stuff coming up back then, but yeah this song. It's awesome. It hasthis like odd, six, four time signature, but that doesn't matter you know thelyrics. The lyrics are words we can all relate to. We all have dark stretchesin our lives. This song, I think, is a great summarization of that. I love thelyrics. The music perfectly accentuates the lyrics. I don't think anybody'sreally witting on my anse, her it's a legit hit in case you didn't know, butlet's Sal, let's hough the fans have to say about this one. Okay, the fans have spoken, and I feel like this memberis, a goodnumber I feel like it should be higher, but eighty three point nine percentsaid legit hit. So what sixteen point? One percent of people said it's a songgone wrong. I don't know who those people are yeah, that's yeah, but Iwill find you but be a pretty much everybody who likeactually responded to it. They just said legit hit and I agree so there wehave it awesome, yeah. Well, back thanks for drinks for joining us onthis episode again appreciate you. You know talking about some some deep personalmatter. I'm sure there's someone out there that can you know residet thatthat resonate with and hopefully can help them as well. So we greatly it'sall about reaching it's all about reaching out man and just like justkeeping track of your friends and people that you love and that's it manjust just ask some true questions and say you know, like other than thebullshit saying how you doing this and Nag yeah, let them let them talk man.Let people talk because they want to. They want to, they want to tell theywant to say, what's going on in their mind, so yeah stop being a talker other than me being talker right now,but listener. No, that's part of it too right. You know if you want to, if youwant them to give you like an honest answer, you know. Obviously listeningis the other part of that too. So, just you know something was to tell you, youknow, listen yea. I think one. I feel like one thing that we all shouldhopefully have learned. I don't think it got through to everybody, but youknow this whole this past year, empathy, you know because, like with thispandemic, like everybody was affected in some way or another, you know, andthen that doesn't mean that doesn't make it right that it go well.Everybody has a level playing field, that's not how it works. It just meanseverybody's going through some shit, and I tole this pandemic kind of put aface to the fact that everybody is dealing with Shit. You know whetherit's you know tethe just lost their job or they lost a family member or dealingwith like mental health issues or health issues. You know or whatever thecase is. You know somebody's going to be dealing with something at prettymuch any given point in time. You know. Obviously some things are bigger thanothers, but you know everybody's got something going on and I think thenicer we are the better. This world will be yes and the next time you wantto yell at your waiter, for forgetting the catchup that you ask for extra justsay: Hey man...

...she's got things on her mind. She wantsto do a good job. You know this person at the at Walmart or what have you?Everybody that you deal with you don't just just be kind at the end of the day,just be kind and be patient.
