“I don’t mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.”

Temple of the Dog – “Hunger Strike” from Temple of the Dog (1990)

This is terrific songwriting from Chris Cornell in the beginning days of the grunge era, when flannel and funny hats still meant something.

  1. I’ve been listening to that album a bit lately. By “that album” I mean the this song and “Say Hello 2 Heaven”.

  2. You know another grunge collaboration that’s great? “Right Turn” by Alice in Chains, check it out.

    Jord-man: I was always a bit suspicious when you played this song on Lib Freq back in college, but I can’t get enough of it now.
