While we have seen our fair share of stunning and bad ass music videos throughout the years, this AI generated video for Soundgarden‘s “Black Hole Sun” is something on an entirely different level.
A couple weeks ago, you may have seen us write about the Metallica “Enter Sandman” music video that was created by an AI; the AI pulled from the lyrics of “Enter Sandman,” and presented images that reflected what was being said (as well as captured the mood of the song). This new “Black Hole Sun” music video does just that, and it was also created via Midjourney (the same AI that made the Metallica music video).
Via the Midjourney AI, the Soundgarden “Black Hole Sun” music video, which you will find below, offers a remarkable and breathtaking interpretation of the band’s iconic song. For those who don’t know, this song is from Soundgarden’s 1994 album Superunknown.

In other Soundgarden related news, Chris Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell, recently spoke to the grief she has been feeling since Chris’ passing. Back in August, ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan’s frontman Greg Puciato shared that he saw Chris Cornell the night before he died and spoke to how Chris’ death impacted him. Another musician who was tremendously impacted by Chris Cornell’s passing was that of The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen. During what was a much larger conversation, Momsen shared the following:
“I don’t want to get too heavy, but there’s kind of no way to talk about it without going into the losses that we experienced. We lost a lot of people very close to us. We were on tour with Soundgarden, which was such a peak for me. I’m the biggest Soundgarden fan in the world. Chris Cornell passed away on the night of our last show. That was crushing to me. I was not mentally prepared to handle that, and it really took me down.”
