Soundgarden Release Snippet of First New Song in 15 Years

'Live to Rise' will appear on 'The Avengers' soundtrack

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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
