"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 successful single, reaching #3 and #7 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and Modern Rock Tracks charts, respectively. "Big Empty" also appears on the compilation albums Thank You and Buy This.

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 Baltimore on August 10.
