Motorvision is a home video by the American grunge band Soundgarden. It was released on November 17, 1992.


It features eight songs performed live at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington on March 5, 1992 and March 6, 1992 during the Badmotorfinger tour. Allmusic gave it three out of a possible five stars. Allmusic staff writer Greg Prato said, "Motorvision is an excellent sample of Soundgarden in concert."[1] Motorvision was released on VHS only, with no official DVD version available.

The video features candid footage of the band and people associated with it, including Sub Pop co-founders Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman. Before the first song begins, the band is introduced on stage by a clown, J. P. Patches. The performance of "Slaves & Bulldozers" includes lyrics from Pearl Jam's "Alive" and The Doobie Brothers' "Jesus Is Just Alright".
