Every song on Audioslave’s debut album ranked in order of greatness

Metal Hammer

The singer of Soundgarden fronting Rage Against The Machine. That was the basic, and hugely appealing, pitch for millennial supergroup Audioslave, and while it effectively describes the merging of colossal talents – both bands having conquered the world during the previous decade – it still manages to fall short in describing the magic the group tapped into in its brief lifespan. 

With supersize riffs in the vein of ’70s rock gods Led Zeppelin, Audioslave could easily have fallen into a comfortable niche of being the go-to party band. But Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk hadn’t spent a decade politicising the world for nothing, and brought their firebrand sensibilities to their new group, even if they did slip rebellious sentiment and thinly-veiled presidential criticims in amidst the kind of tunes you could fill stadiums with.
