A new video has emerged for Soundgarden's "Black Rain," from the release of Telephantasm – A Retrospective, due out on September 28th. You can play the video on the player at the top of this article.

Telephantasm is a look back at the history of Soundgarden, from all of their albums, EP's and videos. "Black Rain" is a song that was recorded when the band was working on the Badmotorfinger album, one that set Soundgarden on the path of being a worldwide name. Telephantasm will be released along with Guitar Hero 6.

In a recent interview with Spin, bassist Ben Shepherd revealed that he's gone through a lot of struggles since Soundgarden had broken up, including being broke and without a place to live right now after a recent break up with a girlfriend. As for the period after Soundgarden broke up in the nineties, he went through big struggles.

"My whole life seemed over," he says. "Soundgarden broke up; my other band, Hater, broke up; my fiancee broke up with me; and then I broke three ribs. I got addicted to pain pills, drank a ton, and wound up OD'ing on morphine. I was laid out in my house for five days, and no one knew it. It was a fucking horrible time -- this total rock'n'roll cliché."
