SEATTLE (AP) -- Before the defending Super Bowl champions Seahawks took on the Green Bay Packers, another Seattle favorite played.

The NFL got veteran grunge band Soundgarden and hit-maker Pharell to join the league's season opener festivities with a free concert at the parking lot of Century Link field. The concert was open to all fans, even if they were not attending Thursday's game.

The concert was part a day of festivities in downtown Seattle. Fans started tailgating first thing in the morning and the stadium was full well before kickoff.
