10 unmissable tracks from the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman


As frontman of Soundgarden, Chris Cornell was a key part of the grunge movement. As frontman of Audioslave he gave three former members of Rage Against The Machine new purpose. And as a solo artist Cornell provided some absolute tunes of his own. These are the 10 best songs from across the late musician’s 33-year career.

10. ‘Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart’

The lead single from Cornell’s fifth solo album, 2015’s ‘Higher Truth’ unleashes his soaring vocals over some unexpected mandolin, with casually tragic lyrics like: “Every single feeling tells me this is leading to a heart in broken little pieces.”

9. ‘Fell On Black Days’

From Cornell’s heroically grungy days in Soundgarden, ‘Fell On Black Days’ is taken from the band’s breakthrough album ‘Superunknown’. Drawing comparisons between depression and imprisonment, Cornell mourns: “Just when every day seemed to greet me with a smile / sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time.” When it was released, Cornell told Melody Maker it’s about “a feeling that everyone gets. You’re happy with your life, everything’s going well, things are exciting – when all of a sudden you realise you’re unhappy in the extreme, to the point of being really, really scared.”

    Vincent Lincoln Too many Audioslave songs in the top 10- how about a few from "Down on the Upside" such as "Burden in my Hand"?
