soundgarden:

"We have a musical legacy: the albums, the music, the songs. The interpretations belong to the people who listen to them. The fans own the records and listen to them and love them. It becomes the soundtrack to some part of their lives and we don’t control that. To me that’s what’s exciting about what we do. " - Chris Cornell
