Soundgarden appeared on US TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week. View the video of Chris Cornell and co performing By Crooked Steps below.
The band recently released comeback album King Animal to a positive reception – but guitarist Kim Thayil believes there was never any chance they were going to disappoint fans with unimaginative new material.
He tells BraveWords: “I don’t think we’d be capable, because there’s so much variety on any of our records.
“Even though it sounds like us, if you deconstruct it you’ll see there’s a real eclecticism. So I don’t think we could have fallen into that trap – trying to patronise an audience or market.”
