The Music of Ben Shepherd

And here is what people have to say about the music of Ben Shepherd...


Somewhere
Blue Jello :> (overfloater@thenexus.com)

Well, I like all Ben's music, it's hard to single out one particular song, but I guess my very very favorite would have to be Somewhere.. and Head Down.. and Zero Chance.. and An Unkind... ARGH! :> Somewhere is just great, Rolling Stone said it was like Pomp and Circumstance colliding with Wild Thing, and while Rolling Stone isn't the best judge :>, I think they may be right. Also while I like all of Soundgarden's music and I really dig Hiro, I like Ben better.. songs and style and spit :> I don't know.. but I know if it weren't for Soundgarden I wouldn't be playin bass.... :>

Ty Cobb

I just want to say thanks. I am teaching 7th, 8th, and 9th grade science, and after a frustrating day. I blast Ty Cobb on the way home. Need I say more!!!!


Half
Mayor McCheese (beyera@mhd1.moorhead.msus.edu)

Finally, What rock music should be going towards. An Other Worldly feel that isn't crunch but Still is heavy. A very middle-eastern feel, instead of a middle-class white trash feel (ie Metallica) For once!


Ty Cobb
Stephen Seelinger (sseeling@osf1.gmu.edu)

This is one of the best songs on "Down on the Upside


HIV Baby
Jimmy Turner (mrepp@magpage.com)

great, great, riff. it still manages to get me feel like i have 100 times energy than i did before i started listening to it


Head Down
SEAN MLINCEK (jeffm@warwick.net)

I LOVE THE GUITAR AT THE START. THE DRUMMING IS EXCELLENT.IT'S JUST A GREAT SONG.


Somewhere
Brian Masek (Bjmask19@mail.nfi.com)

Somewhere I think is one of SG's best songs the lyrics are cool the guitar is coo l the bass is cool the drums kick ass. The best is at the end when it fades out and then back in again


Somewhere
amanda pierce (spierce@mpls.k12.mn.us)

this song is not only my favorite song by ben, it is my all time favorite soundgarden song. ever since i first listened to badmotorfinger (my first soundgarden record) it has been my favorite. i think it is so beautiful. it makes me tingle. my favorite line is "...roses for her bed, in laughs of love..." oh, god!! it's wonderful!! i swear, it has been a dream of mine to come home to a bed covered in roses since i first heard this song. beautiful, wonderful.....somewhere..... amanda


Slaves & Bulldozers
blind dog

not much I can tell you that you probably don't know. I just think that it is cool that ben can jump into an established band like soundgarden and then be able to offer the music to one of the band's best songs. hiro is missed, but ben is a more than welcome addition.


Hater
blind dog

I suggest that if you don't already own the hater album, then go and buy it as soon as you can. the album flat out *rocks*. ben sings on quite a few of the songs, and may I add that his singing on all of them is a damn sight better than his vocals on half (a song I genetically cannot like). from memory, ben wrote about half of the material on the record, and it all sounds great. I especially like his lyrics to 'who do I kill', his hilarious vocals on 'blistered' and 'down undershoe' a song just as good as his other control song 'head down. I am also rather partial to 'circles' and 'roadside' and...I guess the list is kind of long. I fervently dream of more hater music to come. I know it wouldn't be disappointing.


Half
Mo (majoc@indigo.ie)

It's nice and um... eh... what's the word? Oh yeah... kinda transy or something. Anyhow! It rulez and so does Ben!


Ty Cobb
Dylan McInturff (Dylan@ed.concord.wvnet.edu)

Ben is probably my favorite member of Soundgarden. I dig his songs a lot, and HATER rules. I have a cool story. I was at a party last weekend at what is technically a business, not a residence. The cops came and busted it up and were real assholes to everybody. Well, as they were leaving, I decided to sing the chorus to Ty Cobb (my band was on stage getting ready to play). The cops, who had already gone down two flights of steps) came back up and were going to take me to JAIL for saying fuck. I luckily talked them out of it, but still, that is a load of shit. May they rot in hell, and happy birthday Ben!


Somewhere
Sa L Di Fa Tt A

I love this song. I'm an artist and I use music as inspiration when I draw. Basically this tune just flooded my mind with gothic, macabre imagery. This is one of my favorite styles in which to paint. The picture was of a dream-like, nightmarish world with a figure of someone's torrid imagination(mine of course)huddled over a unburied coffin, while the ghost of the girl he laments over prances in the background, unbeknownst to him, throwing roses that mark her undug grave. (Whew, I'm outta breath!) Although this is probably not at all what you had in mind while creating the song, I'd thought I would just express what the song meant to me. Thanks for such a creativity-inducing, kick-ass song, guy! And have an awesome birthday!

Switch Opens
Joaquin Sanchez (jsancast@mail.giga.com)

I can't believe anybody else likes this song. It's so cool and Eastern sounding that it's almost ethereal. I think Ben Sheperd is a genius, a weird genius, but a genius. Besides, Chris's lyrics to the song are great! "Hey you patients where's your surgeons?"


Slaves & Bulldozers
Brian Downing (vwdg84c@prodigy.com)

This bass part has always grabbed me, and I think it makes the song. It's just perfect for Slave's mood, and prods along nicely.

kevin ozbirn (tdo@datasync.com)

my fav off of DOTU... great riff, chorus, and lyrics. he should be proud


Head Down

One of the coolest songs I've ever heard, bar NONE! It caught my ear right away. It is very intense, and I had to listen to it over and over again. Soon after that, I bought the tap and learned to play it on own. Definitely one of the most thought provokative songs I've heard. Keep up the excellent writing, man!!!


An Unkind

great song


Jesus Christ Pose
Brent Simmons (bsimmons@ecsis.net)

I think this song has an awsome bass line. I was in a band and when we played somewhere, we usually opened up the show with it. Everyone loved it. The song always gives me goose bumps everytime i listen to it. Does anyone else get them too?


Zero Chance
Ben Lee (garbage@acay.com.au)

This is just the most amazing song. I totally love it. The intro is just heart-stopping. IMHO, it's one of the best, if not the best, songs on 'Down on the Upside'. Actually, I had no idea that Ben wrote the music to it. I guess I hadn't really paid much atten- tion to the CD booklet. The lyrics to Zero Chance are totally amazing, as well. Especially the chorus. Anyhew, thanx for listening to my demented ram- blings. Cya later! Ben L.


Dusty
Celtic Indian (washagizig@aol.com)

Seems to fit with a period in life. I always fel like I'm "Down on the Upside."


Head Down
Rob Chipman (chip9162@uidaho.edu)

Cleaning house one day, SU blasting out of the stereo for the first time, and the title cut finishes up. I'm waiting for another loud blast of mayhem, when out creeps "Head Down," eerily wafting its way out of the speakers. What a trip. This really intense, psychotic, somewhat paranoid, big-brotheresque song. I thought at first that the line "Head high" said "get high." I laughed so hard that I had to get out the lyrics. After reading them I had a different kind of respect for Ben. I always thought that he was a great bass player, but then I knew he was a great musician.


Slaves & Bulldozers


Jesus Christ Pose
Colin Simson (Linda Simson@winchester.mec.edu)

Way to go! This song kicks so much ass, I can't sit down! The music is awesome and the lyrics are cool. I heard that that song is about Calvin Kline or something. Is that true? I am a huge fan and I love Head Down, Slaves and Bulldozers, Switch Opens, and Zero Chance. Happy Birthday Ben, and keep on writting!

You are truely awesome. I really love you guys and enjoy most of the songs on your CD. My favourites are bootcamp and 4th of July. More songs like that would be incredible


Half
Christi (none)

I love the eastern influences. It's a great addition to superunknown. The viola & cello add cool effects as well. Ben's vox is neat cause it fit the style. This is one of the most innovative (and out-there) soundgarden songs.


Zero Chance
Amanda MacArthur

In my opinion, this is one of the best songs on Down On the Upside. It's got a great rhythm, and the lyrics aren't too bad either. My favorite line is, "Born without a friend, and bound to die alone." When you think about it's meaning, it's pretty sad. But, because the whole song is slow-moving and soft, it fit's right in. I also like Jesus Christ Pose, Slaves and Bull dozers, Somewhere and Switch Opens. But, all the SG songs are great too. To Ben: I think you're great! Happy birthday, and keep on writting.

Head down is beautiful. Ty Cobb is work. Jesus Christ Pose is what I always think of when I think of SG. What a great writer.

Head Down
Joe Brancaleone (josephb@pwa.acusd.edu)

This song has such a soaring feel to it, it's the music I hear in sublime nightmares, it's the music I hear when I play "Quake", what does it take to be able to write like that? Similarly eerie is the intro to "Slaves and B.", but this song is a complete book of textures. Definitely one of the many highlights of Superunknown.


Somewhere
Joe Brancaleone (josephb@pwa.acusd.edu)

Did I dare fail mention "Somewhere"? The intensity is incredible, the groove is choppy yet fluid in the long run. The lead-in to the chorus: five eighth note triplets, cutting the measure off short! This is anathema in rock music, but so clever, rhytmically speaking. The same idea is used in "Pretty Noose". That fat bass riff near the end fits perfectly. Happy belated B Ben.

It's verry poor of my that I never heard before of song. Well, it's a song of Ben so I know it should be a good song. Don't think every Dutchman write such stupid letters


Switch Opens

This is one of my favorite songs on the new album. It really grows on you. I like just about anything that Soundgarden is remotely involved in, but I'm convinced that they mostly use Ben's better songs. The Hater record is ok, but there are no songs on it that can compare with, say, Somewhere or Head Down. P.S.: Why is it that Soundgarden only makes videos for songs written by Chris? FUNK DAT!~


Somewhere
Jamie D.S. (seymoja@eng.auburn.edu)

It's a great song to sit alone in a dark room with. Just laying on the floor and letting the music swirl around your head is great.


Slaves & Bulldozers
Stephanie 'The Anti-Muppet' Valahovic (andv@ix.netcom.com)

The deceptive modulation between loud and then not so loud attracted me to this song. It's like eating something Hot and Spicy then something Sweet. the combination keeps you on edge, emotionaly bringing you a sense of melancoly, then slaming you against the wall, and then gently back again.


Head Down
LUKE (LKING11@MAIL.PURDUENC.EDU)

THE SONG JUST HAS SOMETHING MYSTICAL ABOUT IT. THE SONG IS KIND OF LIKE PINK FLOYD MEETS ALTERNATIVE


Zero Chance
Rodrigo Alonso (al371590@academ01.mor.itesm.mx)

Well, this song simply gets me, the music and lyrics rule!! They are both simple but great. Congratulations.


Head Down
trae tomko (fgt5x@virginia.edu)

what makes soundgarden such a captivating band is that ability for everyone to contribute their own feelings. while chris is usually considered to be the band's figure-head, it is songs by kim and ben that add that different, complete element to an album. head down is a perfect example of adding a different flare to the album. a droning, yet captivating bass line behind the masterful guitar and drum lines fits well with the words that ben so well expresses. thank you, ben for not only contributing to soundgarden, but to the lives of the fans that your message reaches, as well


HIV Baby
Bertram Holdredge (@cbcc.bcwan.net)

this is an awesome tune


Switch Opens
Siva (ssssp@ix.netcom.com)

The only reason I chose this song is because it is one Ben's most underrated works and is not very popular. When I first heard Switch Opens I thought it sounded like *the* definitive SG tune. Just the overall melody and chord progression of the song makes it a vintage Soundgarden song. But all of Ben's songs are awesome in every way. He is such a an expansive songwriter. He surprised me on the new album by writing an acoustic ballad with Zero Chance. That song is so beautiful, you would've never guessed the same person wrote the monstrous riff in Jesus Christ Pose or Slaves & Bulldozers. This just shows how flexible Ben can be with his writing style. He can write everything from ballads to crashing metal songs.


Switch Opens
james (5945@greenshaw.merton.sch.uk)

Swith Opens is amazing.The band continue to write cool and influential music.This song has such an interesting structure and timing it's hypnotic."Nothing is when everything is alright" what more can i say.Catch you on the next tour latarrgh.

I love Hater! Circles is one of the best songs on the album(the best being Sad McBain, but that birthday is in November). I hope Hater has another release.


Dusty

I love this song! Ben, you have great talent and I feel honored every time I hear a song penned by you. Dusty is just one of the many songs by you that I enjoy to listen to. Did you ever write any songs for March of Crimes? Just wondering... Keep writing your little heart out.

Somewhere
Lisa Beckwith (beckwith@gte.net)

This songs is one of my favorites. At first it was hard to believe that Ben instead of Chris wrote such a great song. I know that seems pretty narrow minded but it does have a Chris like persona. Jesus Christ Pose is also great, mainly because of the intense beat Ben and Matt create.

Head Down is one of the sweetest songs on Superunknown. Its a really haunting song that puts you in a trance-like state. I also love the Hater song on the "Hempilation" cd "Convicted",its short but sweet and Ben's voice sounds bad ass! Ben is a great song writer and musician and I cant wait to see what he comes out with next.


Somewhere
Carlos Dussan (bgomez1@ibm.net)

Itīs my soundgardens favourite song, it is simply perfect.


Ty Cobb
Maria (RockChic0)

I think that the music written by Ben for Ty Cobb was extremely terrific. I like how the music starts off kinda soft and light and easy-going and then just bursts into something that's loud and "disturbing" and ear-appealing. The music he wrote for this song totally compliments the lyrics and the lyrics totally compliment the music. All-in-all, Ben Shepherd's got great musical abilities and skills and his contributions to Soundgarden, Hater, etc. should always be recognized and accepted respectfully.

I just got the No Alternative CD a while ago, and I heard the soung, and Once again Ben has proven what a great writer he is. When I first bought my first soundgarden CD,BMF, I listened through it a couple times, and realized that there was a certin group of soungs I liked, wich was basically, Slaves and Bulldozers, Face Pollution, Somewhere, and of course Jesus christ Pose. So I whent and looked to see who wrote these songs, and Ben Shepherd allways had something to do with the songs. I continued to buy all of there music thatI could posably lay my Poncy little hands on and continued to find that I really enjoyed Ben's music, especialy on Hater! and I can't wait untill Ben puts something new out, with Hater, or Devilhead or what ever -PONCE

He seek some mistery in that music.I think he want to search te other side of the things and that is his life about.He hopes to find the happines "somewhere" ,the rest and thinking.It gives some kind of timeless athmosphere. And the music is draging me down.Just for giving some- thing special in it,he turns this immemorial music down then up.Itīs like Iīm floating in the air.

Melissa (barlow@netmdc.com)

This song is very different compared to other songs that Soundgarden has written. I love the fact that Ben doesn't give a shit about trying to impress anybody or doing what people expect all of the time. His style is apparent in his words and music. His lyrics may be funny, serious, or abstract, but whatever made him write them, are for his own reasons, not for anybody else. For this reason, I really admire him for doing what is in his heart. It's not very often such an honest person as Ben comes around and touches us with his music. I only wish all human beings were as honest as he.

This song just rips. I love the jazzy middle section when its just this big drwn out melody in a really fucked up rhythm. Well when I say jazzy I mean it sounds like the kind of jazz some trumpet player might play while he realises, on stage, that he's having a nervous breakdown. Kinda reminds me of Bull Pullman's sax bit in the movie Lost Highway.

NO MORE RADIO~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hi, I was in late High School when "Superunkown" was popular. I remember listening to the CD many times: in my car mostly (loud radio/speakers!) anyway...Now being over 30 I get it..... Soundgarden's music was so very awesome that no band could ever duplicate it. Oh yeah pearl jam and S.T.P. were good too at the time. But, I recently listened to the entire Superunkown CD on a road trip. It ROCKS! Still. A little darker than the others. Cooler. More edgy.Enough.[Ahh...these (bands) of today. It's like where did the musicianship/songwriting go? Oh,that's right there's so much more money these days, the "big guys" will take almost anybody. Oh well, I'll just listen to CDs from now on.
