Vh1 recently aired “Behind The Music: 1992”. The show basically talked about rap/hip hop, “grunge”/the Seattle music scene, and the evolving styles of music during 1992. Surprisingly, the documentary showed a lot of Soundgarden pics (some I’ve never seen before), live clips, and a commercial Chris did that year to promote Rock the Vote. Chris and Susan were also interviewed (separately) about the scene and the music that year.

The 10th Anniversary of the magazine, Entertainment Weekly, has a few Soundgarden mentions. It also includes a quote from Ben on Lollapalooza: “We were just playing for a bunch of twentynothings who’ll turn into forthynothings.”

Dr. Dre, Metallica, Matchbox 20, No Doubt, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem, Alanis Morisette, Beck, and Kid Rock are just a few of the performers for the Grand Opening celebration of the Experience Music Project, the Seattle-based interactive music museum. The festivities take place June 23-25, and half of the concerts will be free. The museum itself will feature more than 80,000 music artifacts (including Soundgarden artifacts), interactive exhibits and an opportunity for visitors to make their own music. You'd think they'd have Seattle bands performing there.

On February 25, 2000, Vh1's "Rock Show" had an all request night. Someone requested that Vh1 dedicate an entire show to playing only SG songs. The host replied, "I think we'll save that one for when the boys get back together." To make up for it, he played "Burden In My Hand".
