Controversy

The song garnered intense popularity when MTV decided to ban its corresponding music video in 1991 — it has not been shown by the channel in its entirety since. The video features various images of crosses, a crucified girl, a crucified skeleton and even vegetables crucified in a human form. Much of the imagery in the video was chosen by the band members themselves. This article is about the original U.S. music television channel. ... A music video is a short film or video that accompanies a complete piece of music, most commonly a song. ...


Many listeners were outraged by the song and its video, perceiving it as anti-Christian. The band actually received death threats about it on a UK tour in the early 1990s. They explained that the lyrics concern the exploitation of religion for personal benefit. The song is a criticism of how public figures use religion (particularly the image of Jesus Christ) to portray themselves as being 'better' than others, or as 'martyrs'. Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ... For other uses, see Martyr (disambiguation). ...

That was our first single off Badmotorfinger, but it never got any airplay because of the references to Jesus. And MTV wouldn't play the video because they didn't like the idea of a girl on the cross. There are no guitars in the video at all. There's not even a picture of a guitar in the video. It's like this hard, rock-fast, punk-metal video that has no instruments in the whole thing. And it's a six minute video! The song's groove reminds me of helicopter blades. I bent the strings at the beginning and end of the song. That's all I remember.

Kim Thayil Kim Thayil (born September 4, 1960 in Seattle, Washington) is best known as the guitarist for Seattle-based grunge band Soundgarden, which he founded with Chris Cornell and Hiro Yamamoto in 1984. ...

In a press release, Soundgarden's frontman Chris Cornell, who wrote the lyrics, explained them as such:

You just see it a lot with really beautiful people, or famous people, exploiting that symbol as to imply that they're either a deity or persecuted somehow by their public. So it's pretty much a song that is nonreligious but expressing being irritated by seeing that. It's not that I would ever be offended by what someone would do with that symbol.

Chris Cornell Chris Cornell (born Christopher John Boyle on July 20, 1964) is an American musician best known as the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of the rock bands Soundgarden (1984-1997) and Audioslave (2001-2007). ...
