Soundgarden, "Rusty Cage"
Sometimes you don't have to be in jail to be imprisoned. Soundgarden's 1992 Badmotorfinger classic is a harrowing cut about captivity and the desperation to break free: "Cutting my teeth on bars and rusty chains. I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run." No wonder it worked so well for prison-song master Johnny Cash, who covered it in 1996.
