A new Soundgarden song is pretty much the only thing interesting about the Avengers movie

5 April
Author: Sam

Soundgarden will be contributing a brand new song to the soundtrack for the Avengers movie that will be out next month.

I always loved comic books as a kid, but the movies, with rare exceptions (think The Dark Knight), never engendered that same excitement.  So for me, the only thing to be at all excited for in regards to this Avengers flick was the news that Soundgarden would be providing it with a new track.

Listen to it below.  It’s a decent, if not spectacular song.  You can tell it was written as a one-off just for the movie and probably (hopefully) doesn’t portend the musical direction and/or quality the band is heading for their next studio album.  But for what it’s worth, “Live To Rise” ain’t half bad.

    As if to prove my point, from a Cornell interview:

    “Some of the songs on our new album are pretty far left of center, and sort of zero in on more of a hardcore SOUNDGARDEN fan and not necessarily a family that goes to see a film like that. Although ['Live To Rise' is] not really what I think of as a necessarily family-friendly song, but it’s as close as we’ve ever come.”
