I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
With a graveyard tan carrying a cross
Yeah, it doesn't remind me of anything
I like studying faces in a parking lot
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like driving backwards in the fog
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost
Things I've held sacred, that I've dropped
I won't lie no more, you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

I like gypsy moths and radio talk
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like gospel music and canned applause
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like colorful clothing in the sun
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like hammering nails and speaking in tongues
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost
Things I've held sacred, that I've dropped
I won't lie no more, you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

Bend and shape me
I love the way you are
Slow and sweetly
Like never before
Calm and sleeping
We won't stir up the past
So discretely
We won't look back

The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost
Things I've held sacred, that I've dropped
I won't lie no more, you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like playing in the sand, what's mine is ours
If it doesn't remind me of anything

Reminds me of something, but I just can't put my finger on it...
I agree it's not their most stirring song, but the lyrics are pretty profound.

I agree. And I think this is the third time I've heard it this week. Skipping...
Missing Chris Cornell!

I think  that guitar solo  is used to torture people who have committed a horrible crime against the state. 
2 Ativan pills doesn't seem like much, It's so possible that autoerotic asphyxiation was involved in  Chris Cornell's death, as well as his pal Chester Bennington.
Guitar break doesn't work at all.
Sounds as if it belongs in a different song, or the shitcan.
Cornell is here, with his dark lyrics and delivery - which struck me as the this town's 'sound' in
the 90s. Grunge.
It has slowly faded out this millennia.
Get-togethers like 'Audioslave, 'Walking Papers', 'Pearl Jam' or Pearl Jam's guitarists involved
with something lame, and the current 'Grunge Again Movement' are sad, and at best an attempt to 
sell past glory as current cutting edge music.
The young 'Progressives' are NOT into it.
It's been 26 years since 'Nevermind' was released, and the dust has just about cleared.
This song doesn't do much to remind me of that glorious explosion. Almost depressing.
 
What a fabulous and somewhat overlooked band. Rage ripping guitar with soaring Cornell vocals. Killer. So, wish I had seen them during their short run. Oh well. RIP Mr. Cornell; few have done it as well and even fewer, better.
I gave it an "8", read the lyrics, gave a "9".  Thanks Bill, I have overlooked this one.

That's nice. Make sure you take Sarah next time so she can see it too. (;

How we live feel ours.
What's the difference between Audioslave and an autoclave? Not much.
This is exactly what this radio station represents... Heart is always classic!
Takes me back to school and my band.

But the lyrics mean more now I'm older. Turn it up!

Best 90s song not written in the actual 90s?  It's a contender for a sure.  

The vocal minority sure hates this one though, which I'm genuinely puzzled by. I like Talking Heads a lot, but I can at least kind of understand that David Bryne's voice could be annoying to some people.

Beautiful, glorious, noise.  Rock on Audioslave!
Noise!
Chris kicks ass! {#Dancingbanana_2}
Grunge-tastic!  Rocks really hard and has pretty good lyrics too.  I don't get the hate for this at all.

Are you sure you understand RP's rating scale? 
Yes, pretty far from Muzak for Alaskins.

Here's the thing.  I am generally in agreement with Morello's politics and his sense of rock and roll in general.  And Chris Cornell is one of the greatest singers of all time.  I just don't dig Tom's guitar solos - they are unique but to me disruptive of the flow of good songs - like this one.
No thank you
The vocals make this one for me
hell yeah {#Hearteyes}

Always called this Rage Against the Garden...
 
Hell yes, brutha.

Still prefer Soundgarden or Rage if I had to choose.
I haven't heard this in a while. Grunge-y and hot. Grates the ears, not for refined tastes, but still me like a lot that slamming backbeat and guitar break.

Temple of the Dog!!!
Absolutely horrible.
Nice groove.

Decent, but not radio paradise material

I fought the law and....the law won

DOES remind me!  Don't even ask how many groups...
First listen for me.  A very good listen at that!
Oh yeah!  Hard to beat how they get down in the grunge on this bad boy!  It's interesting how many bands sing about the wild and invigorating short-term disconnections over there on Planet Japan; Collective Soul just to name another one: "No, there's no memories over Tokee-o...No, there's no memories over Tokee-o..." But for me, there were — and still are — maybe too many, sometimes...
Obnoxious!
oh lord. i love cornell in any match up. solo, soundgarden, audioslave...give me more cornell.


not to mention the lead on this song really smokes...  love it...

 


Brilliant blend of music here, Bill...  common theme of personal loss and desire for escape from material reality...

this is also a perfect song for Memorial Day, considering the video...

this song has real punch...  one of the great classics of the last decade...  love it...

 
Toe tapp'n time!
I like Rage Against the Machine, I like Soundgarden...  but for some reason I really can't get into Chris Cornell and the majority of Rage playing together.  I feel like Chris's vocal style weakens the band, and it's unnatural not to hear more from Tom Morello's unusual style.  
Yeah,more of this and Soundgarden,please😉
What a second... this is one I uploaded a ways back and it got the boot.
Now it's on the main.
Man, that happens to me a lot.

It does wonders to my upload averages. {#Eh}
Love that bass line! 


This song is soooo good it puts a spring in my step this spring night...

New six year old music that is.



Volume just went wayyyy up...  everybody in my hotel room loves this song...


Cool! More Audioslave please! Soundgarden too!


I'll dance to this...

 
this song doesn't remind me of anything for some reason.

Chris has one of the best voices in rock, IMHO.
great way to kick off a monday
WOW!  Great addition to the playlist!  Love Chris Cornell's voice. {#Sunny}



This song is awesome...  love it!  (This song has a great anti-war video, too...)

 

Loving all the new music today!!! Thanks, Bill!
Give me Soundgarden and Rage any day. I give the album cover an 8.

This needs to be in the rotation much more often!
