I remember seeing an interview with Judge Ito, who was the judge on the O.J. Simpson case, and they’re asking him all the typical silly questions, and one of them was ‘What kind of music do you listen to?’ And he said, ‘I really like Soundgarden.’ That had to have been one of the weirder testimonials I’ve heard.
Watch Soundgarden’s rooftop performance of ”Rusty Cage” at SXSW. From the band’s episode of Guitar Center Sessions, which premieres on DirectTV May 4.
