“[In] Audioslave...we were forced to make music to suit a vocal melody, and that meant making songs that had chord progressions. That's the one big difference between the Prophets of Rage and Rage Against The Machine - we also have chord progressions in our music. Every time I feel those progressions, I think about Chris Cornell." - Tim Commerford
