Soundgarden's first U.K. show in 15 years took place at Donington Park's Download Festival 2012, the metal fest's 10 year anniversary.
"Thanks for having us Download," Chris Cornell announced, "it's our first show in the UK for 15 years."
Cornell and the boys came out swinging with a rousing rendition of "Spoonman." They played several well-known hits—such as "Fell on Black Days" and "The Day I Tried to Live"—as well as some deep cuts from Badmotorfinger including "Drawing Flies" and "Rusty Cage."
Some fans, however, weren't pleased with the lesser known material. NME spoke with one fan who would have liked to have heard more familiar songs:
"I was hoping for more from Superunknown and Down on the Upside, and in general a bit more energy. Still top notch though, and I've had 17 beers so it's all good."
