A Chris Cornell Retrospective

Yesterday I posted my thoughts on the passing of Chris Cornell. At the time that I had written that particular post, authorities had suspected a possible suicide. I was to find out later on that indeed, Cornell had committed suicide by hanging himself.

Despite how his life came to end, he was a remarkably talented artist who has left behind a legacy of some of the most defining music of his time. In the post I wrote yesterday I had originally intended to post a few of his tunes in order to showcase some of his music, whether it was with his groundbreaking grunge band, Soundgarden, or with the supergroup Audioslave, or with Temple of the Dog, a band dedicated to his late friend, Andrew Wood. After I started writing yesterday, I decided that the tone of that particular post wasn’t conducive to including music, so I decided to share that side of Cornell in today’s post. I decide to pick a couple of songs from each band that he’s performed in as well as his solo career in memoriam of Chris Cornell.

Soundgarden: Rusty Cage

 

 

This single was written by Cornell and released as the third single from Badmotorfinger in 1992.

Soundgarden: Blow Up the Outside World

 

 

From 1996’s Down on the Upside this single spent four weeks at No 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

This was the first single from the band’s only album and was a duet between Cornell and Eddie Vedder. It scored them a No. 4 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Temple of the Dog: Say Hello to Heaven

Chris Cornell: Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart

 

 

The video for this single eerily foreshadows the way that Cornell decided to exit from this world.
