Soundgarden Song “Black Hole Sun” Named After “Black Sun” Sculpture In Seattle Park

“Black Hole Sun” was the third single released from the 1994 Soundgarden album, Superunknown, and most likely their most popular song.

About the song Chris Cornell said,

 “It’s just sort of a surreal dreamscape, a weird, play-with-the-title kind of song.”

Ever wonder where the title “Black Hole Sun” came from???

The inspiration for the song title came from “Black Sun”, a 1969 sculpture by Isamu Noguchi located in Seattle, Washington’s Volunteer Park.  The sculpture looks down from Capitol Hill to the Space Needle.
