An official music video for the posthumously released Chris Cornell song “When Bad Does Good” was shared on Friday (November 16th), the same day that saw the release of a retrospective self-titled box set containing songs from throughout the late Soundgarden and Audioslavesinger’s career. The track is one of 11 previously unreleased songs included in the set.
The video stars Cornell’s son, Christopher Cornell Jr., as a younger version of his father when he was a paper boy in Seattle. Various lyrics and images from Cornell’s career are interspersed throughout the video. Christopher Jr. said in a statement, “For me this video represents my dad and all the art he created throughout his life and what his music meant then and what it means now, not just to me and my family but the city of Seattle and all of his fans.”
A tribute concert honoring the singer, who died by his own hand in May 2017, is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles in January, featuring Foo Fighters, Metallica and Ryan Adams, along with members of Cornell’s aforementioned groups.
