Flannel flashback, y'all! As we mentioned before, Soundgarden have recorded their first new song in 15 years and "Live to Rise" now available in its entirety online.

Listening to Soundgarden's song for Joss Whedon's summer blockbuster The Avengers, you'd think the grunge era was still in its full, laconic swing. The alt-rockers sound no different on this fist-pumping hard rock anthem than they did during their glory years.  

So if you want to pretend Audioslave and solo Chris Cornell never happened, it sounds like the reunited Soundgarden is willing to go along with that alternate version of reality.

Listen to "Live to Rise" over here and tell us what you think! Solid track, right?
