Chris Cornell of Soundgarden

Chris Cornell, who is best known as the frontman of Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden, died Wednesday night while on tour in Detroit, according to the AP. He was 52.

No cause of death is known at this time, but Cornell’s representative told the AP that the musician’s death was “sudden and unexpected.” AP News is reporting that police are investigating his death as a possible suicide, stating there were “basic things observed at the scene” to warrant this. Cornell had performed with Soundgarden in Detroit, MI, that night, and was later found dead on the bathroom floor at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Audioslave
The Book Slave   |  


As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals, the self-titled debut album by Audioslave is on sale for only $5. If you would like a physical copy of Audioslave, the CD is available for only $6.99.

Audioslave was the short-lived band comprised of former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell and former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk. Hard to believe this album is already ten years old. It seems like only yesterday my local rock station was spinning “Cochise,” “Show Me How to Live,” and “I Am the Highway” in heavy rotation. Audioslave is still a great album and totally worth five bucks just to give you something cool to sing/growl/screech in the shower.

Browse all 100 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99.

Netflix Review: Pearl Jam Twenty

Pearl JamPearl Jam Twenty

DVD | Blu-Ray
Written and Directed by Cameron Crowe

Tremolo Productions
Originally Released: September 10, 2011

As a rock fan and metalhead, it’s hard for me to imagine in many ways that Pearl Jam is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. The time, in my mind’s eye, has flown; but the more I think about it, the more I consider how much this band has been a part of my passion for music… something evidently experienced by other fans as portrayed in Pearl Jam Twenty.

When Pearl Jam was only just starting to achieve international recognition, I was entering my teens. Music was in a transitional period, as far as rock was concerned. In the background, you had your harder edged thrash bands (and up and coming death metal groups) there, consistent with their attack. In the forefront you had the glam and the rock of the 1980s – but not for long…

Music Review: Soundgarden – ‘Live On I-5’
Obi-Dan   |  

Live on I-5
CD | MP3
A&M Records
U.S. Release date: March 22, 2011
UK Release date: March 21, 2011

Soundgarden is a band almost impossible to neatly define. So diverse is the band’s sound that anything they try — be it punk, grunge, rock, acoustic — nothing sounds out of place. Like contemporaries Faith No More, they manage to mix all of these influences together while still possessing an identifiable sound. This keeps their audience guessing, not just from album to album, but from each track to the next.

On new live album, Live on I-5, Soundgarden keeps this excitement going. It was recorded at various U.S. and Canadian venues at the tail end of 1996, just a few months before the band’s eventual break up. Thanks to this, there is a definite sense of anger within the performances, which added to the band’s natural energy and power on stage makes for an intensely frenetic and hugely impressive live album.

Grunge Rock Pioneers Soundgarden To Reunite!
Empress Eve   |  


2010-01-01-sg_reuniteFormer Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell‘s official site was updated today to announce that the grunge rock pioneers are reuniting after a 12-year break!

The message simply states:

The 12 year break is over and school is back in session. Sign up now. Knights of the Soundtable ride again! www.soundgardenworld.com

When you sign up at the site, a video for “Get On The Snake” from their 1989 album Louder Than Love pops up, but there’s no other information at this time, though I gather we’ll be getting some details real soon.

The Seattle-based quartet released their first album Ultramega OK in 1988, but didn’t rise to fame until 1991 with Badmotorfinger, which contained the hits “Outshined” and “Rusty Cage” (which subsequently became popular videos in constant rotation on MTV). From then on, Soundgarden was at the top of the music scene, paving the way for other Grunge acts (along with fellow Seattle bands Nirvana and Pearl Jam).
