"Rhinosaur" is a song by American rock band Soundgarden on their 1996 album Down on the Upside. Despite not being released as its own single it was released as a b-side to the song "Ty Cobb".[1][2] While "Ty Cobb" itself didn't chart, the b-side "Rhinosaur" charted at 19 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.[3]


Chris Cornell said in an interview that whom the lyrics of "Rhinosaur" target was ambiguous and could be applied to several people or groups.[4] "Rhinosaur" was praised for having a massive groove with "stairstep guitar riffs" said to be adored by Soundgarden's guitarist Kim Thayil.[5] Thayil also went on to saying that the tuning of the instruments was unusual for Soundgarden. He said during an interview "Ben and I played on dropped-D, but Chris played in standard tuning. That's unusual for us. If one of us is in dropped-D, usually all three of us are."[6] The song also received moderate airplay by rock radio stations in America.
