The album has been certified platinum by the RIAA in the United States.
Temple of the Dog got back together for a tour in 2016. Around this time, Chris Cornell told Rolling Stone: "'Hunger Strike' and 'Wooden Jesus' were ideas that might have been a few months old, but I had never really finished writing or fully realized them. They didn't feel like Soundgarden, so I didn't really pursue them. But 'Hunger Strike' came about because of an existential crisis that Soundgarden faced at that moment. The entire album is pretty much a showcase of his awesome vocal skills, with the exception of "Hunger Strike". Brandon from Saskatoon, Canadaya pretty sweet song. say hello to heaven is good too, but cornell's singing can get a little irritating in it but ya soundgarden is awesome.
Temple of the Dog performed "Hunger Strike" on October 3, 1991 at the Foundations Forum in Los Angeles, California; October 6, 1991 at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood for the RIP Magazine 5th anniversary party; August 14, 1992 at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, Virginia; and September 13, 1992 at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Irvine, California (both shows were part. of the Lollapalooza festival series in 1992). Pearl Jam has played the song, without Cornell, on several occasions, most notably during the 1996 tour
