One of the earliest Soundgarden songs, this was released as their second single and included on Ultramega OK
, which was their only album released on the independent label SST (making Soundgarden a true "Indie Band" at the time).
The song was composed by their guitarist Kim Thayil, with lyrics added by lead singer Chris Cornell. In our interview with Thayil
, he explained that in their early years, Cornell would often have lyrics written, which he would then match to tracks he thought would work with them.
