Video: Gen X’ers Tell Us About the ’90s at a Soundgarden Reunion Show


When Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell screamed the words “SPOOON MAN! Stop eating with those spoons and play those spoons!!” in 1990whatever, he sparked a revolution, one that wouldn’t end until government outlawed the playing of spoons after several thousand injuries. Or something. We don’t really remember the ’90s, honestly. So we went to a Soundgarden reunion show earlier this week at Webster Hall to ask members of Generation X — remember that term? — to tell us about grunge, crowd-surfing, flannel, and spooning spoon playing.
