BLACK HOLE SUN
Albums:Album:
Superunknown, 1994.

Written by:
Chris Cornell.

Live performances:
Guns N' Roses started to cover this iconic Soundgarden song after the tragic death of Chris Cornell in 2017. The first performance was at Slane Castle, on May 27, 2017. Cornell was found dead on May 18. In total it has, as of {UPDATEDATE}, at least been played {BLACKHOLESUNSONGS} times.
Lyrics:
In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
'Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I'll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come (won't you come)

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won't you come
Won't you come

Lucky you Smile Not many get to see the band debut a new song. Although the circumstances here are really tragic.

Undoubtedly it was very emotional moment -  for me and for the band. I had read that they had been rehearsing BHS the day before, but I might expect them to play some part of the song, I did not expect Axl to sing. It was one day after Chris's funeral. There was a moment of surprise and even tears in the eyes. I think everyone in the band was really excited. It was emotional to me, because Chris's death was quite "personal" for me. Last year I attend two of his aqoustic concerts (In Rome and the Antique theater in Plovdiv) and even in Rome we met him in the park ....

Lucky you!!! Chris Cornell is probably my favorite artist/singer! I was supposed to go see one of his shows in Copenhagen some time ago, but when I got around to order tickets it was sold out Sad I have been listening to his song book record a lot lately. Fortuntately I did get to see him live once, with Audioslave.

Then Chris [Cornell]. Susan [Holmes McKagan, Duff's wife] and Susan Silver [Cornell's first wife] were pregnant at the same time. They had [their daughters] two weeks apart, and we hung out with them and our babies. That's just real-life shit, and then Chris going... the fucking weird thing about that is, that night, about 8 o'clock at night, Axl came into rehearsal and said, 'Let's do 'Black Hole Sun'. Let's try that song.' We rehearsed until 12:30 that night. I got home, and [GN'R guitarist] Richard Fortus texted me — 'Chris is dead.'

You know, we started doing the Glen Campbell song after he died as a tribute to him. We started doing Black Hole Sun after Chris died. We started doing Melissa after Gregg Allman died, you know? And they all sort of started organically, like one of us just played it and then people started picking up on it. Like, that's why I started playing it and then Slash came out and played on top of it.

I call bullshit. Otherwise I am sure Richard would have told the same story.

Slash would comment on why they kept Black Hole Sun in the set after they first played it as a tribute to Chris Cornell after his suicide:

It just became something that we don’t feel comfortable taking out of the set now.

We had rehearsed that night, and Axl came into rehearsal and goes, ‘What do you guys think about doing “Black Hole Sun”? I’ve just been singing it for the last two weeks.’ Axl has a fucking sixth sense like that,” he says. “I don’t know if we tried it that night, but we talked about it. I drove home and [GN’R guitarist Richard] Fortus calls me at, like, 2 a.m. and is like, ‘Turn on the radio. Cornell’s dead.’ Axl was pretty freaked out by it.
