 Soundgarden are now back in full force after announcing their reunion in 2010, and to help welcome them back in style, the band performed on the Monday night (Nov. 26) episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ In front of a standing-room-only crowd, Soundgarden took the outdoor stage to play ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Been Away Too Long’ before surprising the live audience with three extra tracks off the air.

The legendary grunge band released their first all-new album in 16 years, ‘King Animal,’ on Nov. 13, selling 83,000 copies in its first week and debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album has received mostly positive reviews from critics and fans, including the ‘Kimmel’ audience, which gave Soundgarden a red-hot reception as they jammed on two of their newest tracks.

After plowing through ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Been Away Too Long,’ Soundgarden gave their fans performances of ‘Rowing,’ ‘Rusty Cage’ and ‘Beyond the Wheel.’ Soundgarden may be seen by some as simply a gem from the past, but when checking out the band’s new material, especially played live, music addicts of all ages and backgrounds are sure to embrace Soundgarden in the present.

Check out love footage of Soundgarden performing on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ along with fan-shot footage of the band continuing their set after the cameras had been shut off.
