    They must have loved making this video since not one of them shows up in it.

    Q: “What’s you’re favorite video?”

    Kim: “Oh this new one is awesome. I just lay in bed all day and didn’t have to lift a finger

  4. LOL says:

    video clip of trash hahaha holy shit

    Cornell Seems to be forcing his voice into a bathroom, freeing your needs.

  5. Calvin McLain says:

    So she’s one of those aliens from Prometheus after touching the bones and skulls creation?

  6. SuperSG says:

    Worst vid Ive seen outta SG…nice butt though…

  7. Crazies says:

    pretty meh..

  8. John says:

    shitty song and video

  9. lol says:

    $oundgarden trash = back to money

    fact…

  10. Marcelo says:

    Weak video.. weak song.

  11. El Coyote says:

    This video is satanic.

  12. SONICGARDEN says:

    Hey its Soundgarden :) its a nice hard grunge rocking song, but the video does lack quality and content, its just some girl running from dogs in a crazy winter nuthouse , so?? HOWS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN : BEEN AWAY FOR TOO LONG??

  13. SONICGARDEN says:

    Why does this remind me of Aerosmiths new video for Legendary Girl? :) also about a girl running from some evil force of mankind or nature. Soundgarden, get back to your Black Hole Sun days of making music video greatness ok? and please come back with a harder rocking grunge album
    like Sonic War :)

  14. BULLSHIT FAKERS says:

    grunge report should change its name to bitch report net
    people seem to just complain all the time about how bands aren’t the same as they were twenty years,ITS 2012 NOT 1991,time and people change.
    im just happy soundgarden,aic,smashing pumpkins, are back to making music

  15. SONICGARDEN says:

    Well time to change back! If Soundgarden kept on making Superunknown 1,2,3 and 4 forever , THEN I WOULD BE HAPPY :)

  16. SONICGARDEN says:

    Those songs on Superunknown were made for the possibility that there would be a follow up to Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, and My Wave

  17. SONICGARDEN says:

    IF I HAD A TIME MACHINE, I WOULD PAY SOUNDGARDEN TO GET INSIDE ;p) AND TRAVEL BACK TO 1994 AND START ROCKING AGAIN LIKE YOUNG SEATTLE GRUNGE PUNKS WHO HAS VISION, HEART AND ROCK N ROLL GRUNGE SOUL .

  18. BULLSHIT FAKERS says:

    @SONICGARDEN well you dont have a time machine and this aint 1994
    and badmotorfinger is better than superunknown

  19. me says:

    doing it the way of aic

    i don’t need to see the band or any video.

    this is one of the best albums i have heard in years.

    i do like the video. though i don’t need it.

  20. Scott McLean says:

    I can’t hear it. Nothing is going right for me today, including tonight, except I’ll be getting married in the next millenium, if I can get some computer parts and make it that far into the future. I found who I want to be my wife, that part could be true, unless of course she’s married. If she’s married, then I just gotta realize I live in nowheresville, usa, up close and person with sagebrush.

  21. Scott McLean says:

    I meant up close and personal

  22. Scott McLean says:

    Oh I understand, VEVO won’t let you have sound, and almartway won’t let me have my glasses without lying me into submission. real and true, so i ain’t buying their schtick but i do want to get married if i can freakin’ SEE well enough to recognize her again. ok that’s overly dramatic, and i hate the drama, so i’ll just say she’s smart, and wow she’s nice. I hope God hears what I’m sayin’

  23. Scott McLean says:

    ok it appears i can’t hear it on youtube either, nor can i hear m-ing love by Kiss so I think this laptop has a problem with the sound, and i can’t find my inspiration to hope for good music, and love. i am, however, hopeful.

  24. Casper says:

    Not a fan of the song or video. Alice and STP had better comeback singles and videos then this.

  25. Spoonman says:

    wouldnt this have been a perfect video for Hunted Down? like seriously perfect

  26. SONICGARDEN says:

    I really like this video, but it would of been cool to watch Soundgarden perform this song while the girl is running away from the dogs and Chris Cornell, Kim, Ben and Matt all try to protect her with a powerful spiritual animal god coming down from the ceiling of the building and shes lifted up into the sky. Thats how this music video for Been Away Too Long should of been. Sometimes its a good idea to let true fans of rock music suggest how a band should promote itself. Why couldnt Soundgarden have a fans directed video competition?? Just like The Foo Fighters used to do :)

  27. SONICGARDEN says:

    By the way, whos the cute girl in the video? :) Is that Chris Cornells daughter? or some hollywood actress?

  28. AmyWine says:

    Video is satanic indeed, where innocence cannot survive the evils of patriarchy without giving in and destroying herself in the process.

    Even if the band members are not in the video, I think that Soundgarden is a thinking band, unlike some others who just try hard to be one.

    :-D

  29. Scott McLean says:

    I agree that AIC and STP made better comeback singles and AIC were real men of grunge by releasing the full song single of A Looking In View and nobody or almost nobody is releasing long songs like that for radio except AIC. Those guys are so cool!!

  30. Chainsgarden says:

    Have you people not listened to the streaming cd yet? Awesome songs. Bones of birds is an instant classic check it out. And they said in an interview they don’t feel right being in a video. Feels out of place and comfort zone

  31. Jim says:

    Very good album. Pretty shit video.

  32. SuperSG says:

    @ Scott McLean

    sorry buddy, you usually dont have anything stupid to say but that was one of the most misinformed and frankly stupid comments youve said. BGWTB is as great as King Animal, but STPs return album was less than half of either of AIC or SGs return albums.

  33. Spoonman says:

    @SuperSG
    in my opinion STP and King Animal are great and i dont care much for BGWTB. King Animal is tops though
