Watch Machine Head Members Cover Audioslave’s ‘Show Me How to Live’
Rusty Chains are a Bay Area-based cover band who pay tribute to Seattle bands like Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. At their third annual Chris Cornell tribute show last weekend, Machine Head's Robb Flynn and Logan Mader played an epic cover of the Audioslave stomper "Show Me How to Live" from their debut album.
Audioslave were one of the most prominent hard rock bands of the 2000s. The Soundgarden vocalist joined the members of Rage Against the Machine to form the supergroup in 2001. Their 2002 debut album entered the Billboard 200 at No. 7, and has since been certified three times platinum by the RIAA.
The show took place July 19 - Flynn's birthday - at Verdi Club in San Francisco, Calif. A Facebook user uploaded a video of the performance, watch it below.
Machine Head have an upcoming tour this fall to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Burn My Eyes, which will see Mader and original drummer Chris Kontos join Flynn on stage to perform the album in its entirety. See the dates here.
