Personalities | Audioslave | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 2001–07)

Formed from various seminal rock groups of the heaviest ilk, Audioslave – Chris Cornell (vocals), Tom Morello (guitar), Brad Wilk (drums) and Tim Commerford (bass) – make a racket honed through experience gained in the likes of influential acts Rage Against The Machine and Soundgarden. Perhaps too dry to be taken in one sitting, their eponymous debut still served up ‘Cochise’ (2002), a track so immediately energizing that the band could well have formed for that alone.
