If you grew up on MTV in the ’90s when the music channel actually played videos and Seattle was the rock capital of the world, you have to have a place in your heart for Soundgarden. (If you’re like me, the “Black Hole Sun” video — that Barbie doll in flames on the grill! — will forever be ingrained in your mind.) You’re in luck: The band is going on a reunion tour, so there’s a good chance you’ll hear that hit and many others July 12 when Soundgarden plays the Patriot Center with the Mars Volta.
