March 26, 2012 6:15 PM ET

"Live to Rise," Soundgarden's first new song in 15 years, is slated to appear on the soundtrack for The Avengers in May. The full track hasn't leaked just yet, but the label has released a 30-second teaser – which you can check out below  – showing off the song's colossal riffs.

You may be wondering, "Wait, what about those previously unreleased songs on their greatest hits album, Telephantasm, a few years back?" Well, "Black Rain" and "The Telephantasm" were reworked from material dating back to the late Eighties and early Nineties. "Live to Rise" is an all-new song composed after the band reunited, and it gives us some sense of what to expect from the band's forthcoming album.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
