Foo Fighter Dave Grohl has explained to Fuse how he came to direct the video for Soundgarden's song “By Crooked Steps” (via Classic Rock): “I was on vacation and they sent me their new record. I was such a huge fan, way before I moved to Seattle. The third song is called ‘By Crooked Steps’ and it’s such an awesome Soundgarden song. Instantly recognizable.”

“I didn’t know if it was going to be a single or if they wanted to make a video or what. I called my manager and said, 'I think I’ve got an idea for a Soundgarden video.'”

Grohl ended up sending his concept of the video, which feature Soundgarden as a biker gang, but instead of motorcycles they're on Segways, to the band's drummer Matt Cameron. Says Grohl about Cameron's response: “He said, ‘Yeah, that’s kinda cool – I don’t really know if we’re going to make a video.’ And so we kinda made them make the video.”
