Audioslave was an American rock supergroup that formed in Los Angeles, California in 2001. It consisted of former Soundgarden lead singer/rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell and the former instrumentalists of Rage Against the Machine: Tom Morello (guitar), Tim Commerford (bass and backing vocals) and Brad Wilk (drums).

Awesome song! One of the best Audioslave choruses (perhaps my fav). Written about Hurricane Katrina. Can't believe this wasn't a single (the bass line alone should have been released as a single).
