LP Stitch: Superunknown

In light of Chris Cornell’s recent, tragic passing, I stitched Soundgarden’s Superunknown (1994). I was 10 when this album came out and I quickly hopped on the grunge bandwagon (which – as a chubby, mid-western kid – was pretty unfortunate-looking, I’m sure). About four years later, I started playing the album on loop constantly. They say that 14 is a pretty formative year, pop-culture-wise. It seems fitting that I ended up in the city who’s music I idolized a child and teen.

Bonus: When I cross-stitch I often listen to KBCS, a local, awesome, eclectic radio station. Their funk program did an hour-long tribute to Chris Cornell (see playlist from 05/19/17). Initially, it seemed out of place, but I quickly realized just how much funkier and more soulful Cornell was compared to other grunge singers. The thing that cemented this view was hearing this cover of “Jesus Christ Pose” on the tribute program (original here).
