"Big Empty" is a song by the American hard rock band Stone Temple Pilots that first appeared in 1994 on the soundtrack to the Brandon Lee movie The Crow. The song later appeared on the band's second album, Purple, and was released as a single. "Big Empty" also appears on the compilation albums Thank You and Buy This.


The song plays on many traditional conventions of rock music, with references to a woman, cigarettes, and fast-driving. "Big Empty"'s verses have somewhat of a blues sound, mainly through guitarist Dean DeLeo's style of slide guitar playing and Scott Weiland's softer vocals. The thunderous chorus features a dissonant, suspended E7 chord.

Live performances

The song was performed live for the first time during STP's MTV Unplugged on November 17, 1993, seven months before Purple was released and one day before Nirvana's MTV Unplugged set was recorded. On STP's 2008 reunion tour, "Big Empty" was the opening song for every show except for the band's performance at the Virgin Mobile Festival in Baltimoremarker on August 10.
