Last night’s excellent premiere of Conan O’Brien’s new show on TBS featured Jack White, a man who has been no stranger to late night shows in the past few years. However, for Conan’s second episode, he managed to get an act that’s been away from TV for quite a while: Soundgarden made their first TV appearance in 13 years, performing their “new” song Black Rain, which was written in the 1990s, but only recently finished and released on their compilation album Telephantasm. You can watch that performance right here:
As solid as the band was playing their reunion-promoting single, something arguably cooler happened off the air: the band also performed Hunted Down, their very first single, on the show. While it was not aired on TV, the video was made available online for our viewing pleasure. Check it out below:
Soundgarden seems to be in great shape, and Chris is pushing his vocals further than some naysayers expected him too. One can only hope that this reunion will finally result in some actual touring, and perhaps a new album, if it’s not asking much.
Thanks once again to The Audio Perv for ripping video!
