Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger: Wikipedia Album Entry
Badmotorfinger is the third album by the American grunge band Soundgarden. It was released on October 8, 1991 through A&M Records. After touring in support of its previous album, Louder Than Love, released in 1989, the band began the recording sessions for its next album with new bassist Ben Shepherd. The music on the album maintained the band's heavy rock sound while featuring an increased focus on songwriting when compared with the band's previous releases.
The focus on the Seattle grunge scene helped bring attention to Badmotorfinger. The singles "Outshined" and "Rusty Cage" were able to find an audience at alternative radio and MTV. Badmotorfinger became the band's highest charting album at the time on the Billboard 200. The band supported the album with tours of North America and Europe, including opening for Guns N' Roses on that band's Use Your Illusion Tour. In 1992, Badmotorfinger was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. The album has been certified two times Platinum in the United States.
