SOUNDGARDEN's 'Black Rain' Video Available For Free Download

SOUNDGARDEN's video for the song "Black Rain" is currently the iTunes "Free Video of the Week." The offer started this Tuesday and will end on Monday, October 18 at approximately midnight.

Directed by Brendon Small, the co-creator of Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse", "Black Rain" is the first artist-driven music video to be based off the show. SOUNDGARDEN members — Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Sheperd — are transformed into avatar-robot controllers as they patrol the streets of a post-apocalyptic Seattle defeating evil. The video builds up to an epic phosphorescent robot battle in space. "I'm a gigantic SOUNDGARDEN fan and it was so much fun bringing them into our warped 'Metalocalypse' world," said Small about making the video.

You can get the free video at this location.

"Black Rain" is a never-before-heard unreleased track that appears on SOUNDGARDEN's first retrospective, "Telephantasm", which came out on September 28. Taken from the "Badmotorfinger" recording sessions, the song was called "a grunge grenade" by USA Today.
