Audioslave Reunites At Anti-Inaugural Ball After Over A Decade [Watch]

first_imgChris Cornell, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have reunited as Audioslave for the first time in over a decade at the Anti-Inaugural Ball at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last night. The Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine supergroup performed three tracks off their debut 2002 self-titled LP, including “Like a Stone”, “Cochise”, and “Show Me How to Live.”The band hadn’t performed together since November of 2005, and officially broke up in early 2007 after releasing their third LP Revelations. It’s not likely that the band will continue this reunion in any shape or form, rather, it seemed to have been a one-time thing for the anti-Trump concert.Watch the entire performance below, courtesy of YouTube user Ted Weitzman:In a previous statement the band explained, “The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”The event also featured performances from Prophets of Rage, along with special sets from Jackson Browne, Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir.last_img read more
