There are several other places to find Soundgarden-related material
that I don't maintain:
YAHOO! SOUNDGARDEN CLUB
An actual living resource, the Yahoo! Soundgarden club, maintained by Jon Tewksbury, consists of approximately 300 members with a message board, photo albums, etc.
There are two Usenet groups where you might find Soundgarden discussion, alt.music.soundgarden and alt.fan.chris-cornell. The latter is intended for discussion of Mr. Cornell's various solo endeavors, including his upcoming 1999 release. If your ISP does not provide Usenet access, you may participate via Google Groups.
THE ONLINE MUSIC DATABASE
Andy Burnett maintains the database, which contains information about
releases by thousands of artists, including Soundgarden.
This site is a fixture of the Web music community, having existed
since sometime in 1993, but has been somewhat outdone by more recent
artist databases, such as ArtistDirect.
OFFICIAL SOUNDGARDEN WEBSITE
The Official Soundgarden website was the result of some serious hard
work by iMusic. Site included a discography, lyrics, RealAudio and
live RealVideo clips, and some special features. By far the coolest feature of the site was the promotion for the Alive in the Superunknown CD Plus, at the time an exceptional example of web design.

THE MUSIC CENTRAL INTERVIEW
The Microsoft Music Central interview with Soundgarden was a superb
chat with the band and contained audio clips available of Kim Thayil
improvising on his guitar that should not be missed.

SOUNDGARDEN'S EUROPEAN TOUR 1995
Originally exclusive to the Microsoft Network and seemingly lost in
the confusion following the tour, this rather unknown site contained a
full collection of official photos and commentary from Soundgarden's
1995 European tour. Many of the pictures were mediocre at best (dark,
grainy, and from too far away), but it was worth a look. The interface

Kendrick Kay's Limo Wreck attempted to divide Soundgarden's music,
lyrics and cover art into mood and feel categories, something that
nobody had really done on the Web before. A unique perspective and
well worth a visit.

SOUNDGARDEN IS GOD
Robert Chipman ran Soundgarden Is God, which included original
material as well as images culled from other sources on the Net. It
quiz, and a diary of Rob's thoughts after the band's split in April
1997. The site was frames-based.

GEOFF'S SOUNDGARDEN PAGE
Geoff Kleemola, a Psychology student at the University of Winnipeg,
put together a Soundgarden page of his own. It included working
drivers for those of you who couldn't get the Alive in the
Superunknown CD+ to work on your PCs.

THE LOWLANDS FESTIVAL WEBSITE
Soundgarden performed at the 1995 Lowlands Festival in the
Netherlands. This page included a band bio, audio clips, images,
etc. The catch: it was all in Dutch.

PLACES TO BUY STUFF
Please note: I am no longer maintaining a list of places to buy
Soundgarden-related items, because it changes so frequently. I do
recommend that you use GEMM to track
down hard-to-find goods.
