I think the first time I heard Chris was Hunger Strike with Eddie Vedder from the Temple of the Dog album. Best duo rock vocal ever?

Soundgarden's (Chris-penned) Rusty Cage still blows my doors off. Johnny Cash covered it on one of his American albums. Today's emo-twerps need to listen a few hundred times and learn what real angst sounds like.

RIP Chris - I hope you broke your Rusty Cage.

This one has me gutted. Saw them in concert at a small venue in Vancouver in 1992. My wife was 7 months pregnant and the concert was so loud, I was afraid she would go into labour! They were amazing. Fuck.

My favorite albums are Superunknown, Temple of the Dog, and Badmotorfinger, but the only time I saw him live was on the Euphoria Morning tour in 1999. My friends weren't interested, and I couldn't get a date, so I took my mom. I knew she wouldn't care for Soundgarden, but she loved hearing him sing that early solo stuff. She still talks about that concert, and how he has one of the most beautiful voices she's ever heard.

Alice in Chains and Soundgarden were my two favorites for many years. It's been a weird, sad day, thinking that both Layne and Chris are gone now. The definitive end of an era for me.

Love Cornell, shocking news yesterday. I've been rocking to him for 23 years and even used Finally Forever as my wedding song.

Here are a few great Audioslave songs you might not know:

Like Suicide is still my favorite song. And this version is just amazing. If you haven't heard the acoustic studio version I highly recommend a listen.

I have a ton of memories of Chris and his incredible music over the years. The Grunge scene really directed my musical tastes over the course of my life, and Soundgarden and Alice in Chains were the biggest proponent of that, for me.

My favorite song, if I really have to pick one, would probably be this one from the Temple of the Dog days, and how apropos is it now. Say Hello to Heaven for us, Chris.

Such a loss...

I knew Chris Cornell as part of Soundgarden ("Black Hole Sun" still remains one of my favourites) but I also revelled in listening to his James Bond 007 song "You Know My Name" from "Casino Royale" : it did a great job rebooting this franchise.

Rest in peace, Mr Cornell.

I was devastated to hear the news of Chris' death.....and gutted that I never got to see him live.

1994 was one of the hardest and lowest years of my life, working over a hundred stressful hours a week in a dark and miserable winter far from family and friends.....and Superunknown got me through it. The whole album is special to me but Fell on Black Days has to be my pick.





I also loved the first Audioslave album. Ironically I'd just pulled it out and had been listening to it in the past couple of weeks after not listening to it for a few years. Hard to pick a favourite track but I'll go with What You Are.



Brent.

In my youth when I first heard Soundgarden, Chris Cornell became an instant favorite of mine. His voice and his lyrics easily won me over. However, Soundgarden's style of music never really quite did it for me...

On the other hand, I was a huge fan of Rage Against the Machine's sound. Tom Morello is a phenom! But, Zack de la Rocha often left me wanting for something more... How spoiled was I when my favorite band came together with my favorite vocalist!?

Audioslave remains number one on my list to this day. 'Like a Stone' is probably my favorite of theirs. I really regret never getting to see Chris live during any of his tours. Maybe in the next life... Until then, RIP.

As an '80s teen living in Seattle, Soundgarden was my introduction to local music, some of which would later be termed grunge. Louder than Love gets rather overlooked today, but this was one of their best songs and a great example of Chris in his prime.

I was devastated when I heard the news. I was, and remain, a massive Soundgarden fan. I first saw them in 1992 when they came to the UK supporting the Badmotorfinger album, and my friends and I were utterly blown away by the intensity of their performance. It was unlike anything we'd experienced. After that I made a point of catching them whenever they came to these verdant shores. In a rather un-rock'n'roll moment my other abiding memory of seeing them for the first time was worrying about Ben Shepherd's back: he slung his bass so low that he was stooped over it for most of the gig!

My favourite Soundgarden track? Definitely "Searching With My Good Eye Closed". A great track and it really demonstrates Chris' phenomenal vocal range.

My first memory of hearing Soundgarden was watching a special on MTV about The Concert on the Green in San Francisco. I THINK it was '91. The only part featured in that special was the instrumental opening to Jesus Christ Pose, and I remember wondering if they were only an instrumental band. Didn't matter. I wanted more.

I was fortunate enough to see them twice live, once at Lollapalooza '92. Badmotorfinger had only come out a few months before, and I had managed to get my hands on a copy of Ultramega OK as well, which was impressive for a suburban Chicago kid pre-Internet. Then I saw them in 2011 at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. My concerns that they wouldn't be the same band were dispelled. Chris Cornell could still rip the paint off the walls with his voice.

I've decided that, in the incredibly likely event that a 40 year old math teacher takes on a new career as a pro wrestler, "Blow Up the Outside World" will be my theme song (only because "Cult of Personality" is already taken).

Also an honorable mention goes to this one from the Avengers soundtrack.

There's a really chilling effect Norah's version of Black Hole Sun had where the crowd catches on to the full gravity of the situation. Everyone just stops cheering and realizes how well this rendition captures the emotion of Chris' death.
