Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike” features Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder sharing vocals.
The moving track continues to be a fan favorite and apparently came to be due to a little quirk from Cornell.
The Soundgarden singer recalled in the 2011 book ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ that Temple of the Dog had nine songs written, but, “… I had this other song that I whipped up so we could have ten, because I just have to have ten.”
Cornell noted, “Eddie’s singing on it changed the feeling of the lyrics, too. It suddenly became more gospel. It became more meaningful to me.”
Where does Temple of the Dog’s album rank among the music that emerged from Seattle in the ‘90s?
