‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: Siouxsie and the Banshees’ hour-long ‘Scream Superstition’ special

Siouxsie and the Banshees

We paused the weekly “120 Minutes” Rewind feature a few months back because we’d exhausted most of the best clips available on YouTube, but, as time as passed, new finds have surfaced, including this one: an hour-long Siouxsie and the Banshees special called “Scream Superstition” that aired on MTV’s “120 Minutes” in August 1991.

The Dave Kendall-intro’ed program mixes clips of old videos with a career-spanning interview of Siouxsie, Steven Severin and Budgie filmed in Phoenix, Ariz., while the band was there for the opening date of the inaugural Lollapalooza trek, a famously scorching tour stop.

So, basically, it’s goths in the desert. Enjoy!







  1. Great, great band. Feel like they’re often overlooked these days. Join Hands and JuJu are phenomenal pieces of work.

  2. Still have this on VHS somewhere! Much easier to just download it from youtube then search! Superstition was horrendous by the way. And I believe Peek a Boo was the Banshees first top 40 hit. People Magazine did a story on them back in 88.

  3. the late 80s and early 90s were perfect times for them. That was the time when alternative rock music became popular and they were one of the lucky bands like REM, NIRVANA and SMASHING PUMPKINS but sioxusie never became really famous

    but interesting to see that they had 2 minor hits in the US
