History[ edit ] Formation and mainstream success — [ edit ] Prior to forming the band, "Jet Black" real name Brian Duffy was already in his mids—significantly older than the other members of the band he would eventually assemble. A successful businessman, Black at one point owned a fleet of ice cream vans,  and later ran "The Jackpot",  a Guildford off-licence that would serve as the base for the early Stranglers.
It features an opening guitar riff and is performed in drop D tuning. The verses are in 7 4 time, an unorthodox meter, common of some Soundgarden songs, such as " Spoonman ", which has a riff in 7 4, and " Black Hole Sun ", which has a riff in 9 8.
Guitarist Kim Thayil has said that Soundgarden usually did not consider the time signature of a song until after the band had written it, and said that the use of odd meters was "a total accident.
I don't know how everyone else feels Perhaps a fan will sense that, like in a performance, and the hero image creeps out. But then someone will say something, however insignificant, or I'll get something in my head and, all of a sudden, I'm plummeting in the opposite direction, I'm a piece of shit, and I really can't do anything about it.
That's where "Outshined" comes from, and why I'll never consider myself a hero. One of the first times I remember writing something personal was on tour. I was feeling really freaky and down, and I looked in the mirror and I was wearing a red T-shirt and some baggy tennis shorts.
I remember thinking that as bummed as I felt, I looked like some beach kid. But after the record came out and we went on tour, everybody would be screaming along with that particular line when it came up in the song.
That was a shock. How could anyone know that that was one of the most personally specific things I had ever written? It was just a tiny line. But somehow, maybe because it was personal, it just pushed that button. Outside the United States, the single was released commercially in Germanythe Netherlandsand the United Kingdom.
The lyric inspired the title for the film, Feeling Minnesotaalthough Soundgarden is not featured on the soundtrack. Steve Huey of AllMusic called the song a "steadily creeping rocker with a main riff that strongly recalled the heavy murk of prime Black Sabbath ".
He added, "It's a powerful re-imagining of what the Sabbath sound can represent, and the song's encapsulation of early-'90s angst and directionlessness helps make it one of the definitive grunge anthems.
It's also a playable song on the video game Rocksmith. The video was released in December According to Cornell, Mahurin was too busy concentrating on Metallica 's video for " The Unforgiven " while working on the video for "Outshined".
Cornell on the music video: The clip was in the MTV Buzz-bin for a few weeks and then it fell off. About two months later he sent us the real cut, and it was fantastic, way better than the one that got on the air. The unseen version was dangerous; the released version was a standard hard rock video.
He kind of winged it, he was too busy with Metallica. All I can remember is that they cut the guitar solo to make the video 'single-length'.
I thought that was a stupid thing. Here we are, a guitar band, and the guitar solo—it may not be a great guitar solo—was edited out just for the video. It was a heavy song and our most popular video, even though it was a crap video.
It never kicks in or explodes; there's no dynamics. The band never loosens up and explores the riff because the solo was taken out.Tim McGraw, once known for the controversial novelty song "Indian Outlaw," now is one of the world's most famous country stars.
