    “Telephantasm: A Retrospective includes tracks from previous albums, including the song Black Rain which was originally slated for the album Badmotorfinger, but didn’t make the final cut”.

    Think of it as a greatest hits with deep cuts.

    @1 Given that Telephantasm is a “Best of” I’d say that it’s a “Best of”.

    Personally I think making a “Best of Soundgarden” is pretty ridiculous. You’d have to include all their albums in entirety.

    I’m only half kidding, but they were a pretty fierce band back in the day.

    Also, what’s with a vanilla rock game calling itself “Warriors of Rock”? Metalsploitation is what it is. Warriors of VIP rooms and MTV is more like.

    I think LOLshock just missed his ritalin.

    I’m pretty shocked to learn that “The Day I Tried To Live” is only included on the Telephantasm DVD.

    I swear, that industry is run by a bunch of deaf monkeys.
