superstar after being held hostage for 36 days inside a convenience

and uncut or the hostages would be killed, and Spab captured the
worldwide audiences attention with his wit, humor, and famous slogan
"So fucking what?" After shooting his way to freedom, Cliff finds

Soundgarden appears on the soundtrack to the film (if they didn't, would you be reading this on a Soundgarden site?). The track list is as follows:
Soundgarden's "Jesus Christ Pose" is the first track on the album. Following the link will bring you more information than you could possibly need about the song.
The other Soundgarden-related item on the soundtrack is the acoustic version of "Like Suicide," written and performed by Chris Cornell, recorded in February 1994. The regular version of the song appears on Soundgarden's 1994 album Superunknown. This is only the second publicly available recording of Cornell performing solo; the first was the Singles soundtrack, to which he contributed "Seasons." The "Like Suicide" story goes something like this: it was written about a bird that flew into the window at Chris Cornell's house. He heard the sound, and expecting a burglar, instead found the small creature suffering. To end its pain, he crushed its skull with a brick. The track also appears on 1995's CD+, Alive In The Superunknown. There is a sound clip [AU: 442,392] available.
