*REBLOG* MMM: Cochise – Audioslave

Do check out this special excursionary MMM, as well as Steve’s Shark Movies Rock-O-Meter on Stuff And That!

Steve For The Deaf

Oioi, it’s Milo from Stuff And That back again for another MMM (or MILO’S MOSHPIT MUTINY AS IT WILL NOW BE KNOWN), which is literally what Steve does but a lil’ more sexually promiscuous. Of course, special thanks to Steve as well for suffering *this fool* gladly. Or reluctantly…

Today, I wanna take a look at Audioslave’s 2002 hard rock smasher Cochise, from their self-titled debut. Roll the clip!

Following the demise of both Rage Against The Machine AND Soundgarden, Audioslave was formed, mixing the sonic firepower of RATM and the vocal powerhousery of Chris Cornell – a supergroup indeed. Their first single, shown here, is a massive song, with Brad Wilk (my favourite drummer of all time) delivering on something unapologetically brash and big, with pounding toms and car-crash cymbals. 
This is coupled with Tom Morello’s huge riff, drawing on his time in Rage but also further into the…

Soundgarden – Badmotorfinger (1991) Review

The Grass is Always Greener Where the Dogs are Shitting, Folks. Yo, this be Reuben. Damn, it's been a while since I've written that. I guess life and not to mention a certain degree of laziness has meant I haven't found the time to write anything on here for a while. And oh deary me,…Read more Soundgarden – Badmotorfinger (1991) Review

Top Fifteen Grunge Songs – Reuben

Yo, this be Reuben. I'm still in love with grunge music and I don't think I can stop listening to it, so I thought I might as well top ten (wait, no! Fifteen!) the genre while I'm on it. The 'grunge' tag is a controversial one to some, I appreciate, but it's a good way…Read more Top Fifteen Grunge Songs – Reuben

RIP Chris Cornell

Yo, this be Reuben. I know me and Milo said we probably wouldn't write anything for ye for the time being, but I've gotta write something about this. Once an incredible singer and songwriter, now a legend. Chris Cornell was a huge part of grunge at the heart of Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog…Read more RIP Chris Cornell

I’m Also Doing a Top Ten Bands Redux – Reuben

Ayt? Yup, Milo did his oddly named Top Ten Bands Redux, so I thought I might as well do one myself. And NOT just cuz, cuz my opinions have changed. Now, prepare for a badly written, biased and gushing top ten bands -- again. 10. Primus I'm sorry, but I couldn't not mention Primus. They're…Read more I’m Also Doing a Top Ten Bands Redux – Reuben

Soundgarden – Superunknown (1994) Review

Chris Cornell has been involved in various things through the years, and before this point the only one of his projects I'd listened to was Audioslave. Admittedly, Audioslave is a fantastic one if any to start on; but based on how good Superunknown is I think it's got some competition. The album starts very strongly…Read more Soundgarden – Superunknown (1994) Review
