One of the songs with a very memorable hook, and awesome introduction.
I often listen to this one on the iPod while jogging. Kinda gives you that “I’m not gonna give up!” feeling while you feel like you’re about to die.
The opening riff just blows you away as the song starts. The bridge is also nice. The song was featured in Twister starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt.
The driving tempo keeps up and doesn’t quit.
The music video is a seizure inducing quick cut sequence. This was the point in their career when they were trying to look and sound like Nirvana, and the video shows that. looking a lot like the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video.
“Long Way Down” reached #7 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1995.
Now, to only figure out what he means by Long Way Down.
