Audioslave were an American Rock supergroup that formed out of Los Angeles, during 2001.
The line up consisted of;- Soundgarden frontman and rhythm guitarist "Chris Cornell", with the other members of the band, all known for their time with Rage Against the Machine, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk.
Audioslave released three successful albums, received three Grammy nominations, sold more than eight million records worldwide, and became the first American Rock band to perform an open-air concert in Cuba.
Cornell issued a statement in February 2007 that he was permanently leaving Audioslave “due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences”.
After this, the other three members became busy with a Rage Against the Machine reunion, and Morello and Cornell had each released solo albums in 2007, and so, Audioslave was officially disbanded.
Their album discography, although small, made a massive impact;-
1) Audioslave (2002)
2) Out of Exile (2005)
3) Revelations (2006)
Civilian Demos (2001)
A set of demos that were in an almost completed state when they were leaked, this was prior to the band’s debut album having a release date.
