Riff: Soundgarden – “Worse Dreams”

Nov 12, 2012

Everybody in, sit down, and keep holding on

from Worse Dreams lyrics by Soundgarden

Soundgarden picks it back up on “Worse Dreams,” letting you know that they’ve still got it, proving it with surprising distorted thrash at about three minutes in and drum shredding in the outro. While they do rely too much on power chord choruses, Cornell’s scream can still conjure a “bad dream.”
