It would take a pretty amazing frontman to fill the rage that Rage Against the Machine's members lacked without Zack de la Rocha, and that vocalist turned out to be former Soundgarden belter Chris Cornell. The new supergroup took on the name Audioslave and released a self-titled disc in 2002, very much living up to the lofty expectations that came with their backgrounds.
Fans hoping to see Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell perform at the Budweiser Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Pa. over the weekend were disappointed to find out he had cancelled the appearance due to a scheduling conflict. Although not able to make Made in America, Cornell did find himself on stage at a campaign rally for President Barack Obama on Saturday (Sept. 1) in Des Moines, Iowa.
Audioslave were arguably the biggest supergroup of the 21st century (so far). Composed of Chris Cornell and the instrumental section of Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave churned out a masterpiece with 'Like a Stone.'
