On March 8, 1994, Seattle rock band Soundgarden released their critically acclaimed fourth full length album, Superunknown, on A&M Records. An immediate No. 1 in the U.S., it earned the band two Grammy® Awards, and sold millions of records worldwide. The record yielded such iconic tracks as ‘Black Hole Sun’, ‘Spoonman’, and ‘Fell on Black Days’. The LP that was often considered Soundgarden’s “masterpiece” helped redefine alternative rock and influenced the course of music history.
This year, the band celebrates the 20th anniversary of this groundbreaking album with special reissue remastered album in various formats.
‘Black Hole Sun’ and ‘Spoonman’ won Grammy® Awards in 1995, when the album was also nominated for Best Rock Album. The album has also been certified five times platinum by the RIAA in the United States and has sold around 9 million copies worldwide, making it the band’s most commercially successful album. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the album as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and the 100 Greatest Albums of the Nineties. Superunknown debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 310,000 copies in its opening week and reached high positions on charts worldwide.
