He met Hiro Yamamoto at Rich East High School in Park Forest.

After graduation, they moved to Washington, where Thayil studied at the University of Washington. They joined forces with Cornell, a roommate, to start Soundgarden in 1984. Soundgarden became the first of Seattle's grunge bands to sign with a major label (A&M Records) and went on to release three platinum albums and win two Grammys. They disbanded in April 1997. Since then, Thayil has played guitar for Pigeonhed, with the Presidents of the United States of America, played on Dave Grohl's metal side-project PROBOT, and No WTO Combo with Jello Biafra and Krist Novoselic, and has also worked on other projects.
