Audioslave was an American hard rock, alternative rock and post-grunge band that was formed in 2001 and consisted of ex-Soundgarden frontman and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell and the former instrumentalists of Rage Against the Machine: Tom Morello (lead guitar), Tim Commerford (bass and backing vocals) and Brad Wilk (drums). All of band's lyrics were written by Cornell, while all four members were credited with writing the music. Their songwriting process was described by Wilk as "more collaborative" and "satisfying" than Rage Against the Machine's, which was "a battle creatively". They rose to fame with their breakthrough self-titled debut album, Audioslave (2002), which produced the hit singles, "Cochise", "Like a Stone", "Show Me How To Live", "I Am the Highway" and "What You Are". The album's lead single, "Cochise", peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album's next single, "Like a Stone", was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance. From our site you may download Audioslave's breakthrough debut album in mp3.
