Originally dubbed Civilian, Audioslave pairs former Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell with 3/4 of the disbanded Rage Against The Machine, and have thus far appear to have met everyone's lofty expectations. Their debut self-titled album, released in 2002, sounded pretty much as one might expect given its membership -- Cornell has always been a distinctive vocalist and he shines here, while the trio of Morello, Commerford and Wilk also are given ample opportunity to strut their stuff. And yet this isn't just "Rage with that Soundgarden singer", as Audioslave has carved a sound that clearly harkens to those former groups and yet isn't really exactly like either. Cornell announced that he was leaving the band in 2007 to pursue his solo career, and since then he has rejoined Soundgarden.
