THE DAY I TRIED TO LIVE

LABEL
A&M Records

RELEASE DATE
1994








"The Day I Tried To Live" was rather underpromoted when compared to "Black Hole Sun" or "Spoonman." There is esssentially only one version of the single, available on CD, cassette, 12" and 7". The 12" is one-sided, etched and comes with a stencil, making it a rather nice collector's item. The video for "The Day I Tried To Live," which can be found on the Alive In The Superunknown CD+, was directed by Matt Mahurin.
