Know Your Enemy

"We have four guys who write songs here. We have four guys contributing material without someone calling bullshit on it. You follow me? There are many bands out there that are led by one guy who does all the writing? He might have some religious epiphany or some psychedelic experience and he will write all this material that can very easily suck. And the rest of his band feels like they have to play it. That is not Soundgarden. Consequently, we have never made a record that sucked."

Soundgarden's Kim Thayil manages to combine boastfulness with a not-so-subtle dig at Billy Corgan. In truth, he's not really wrong on either front.
