There’s been many tributes from the musical community in the past 24 hours ever since the tragic news of Audioslave & Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s suicide. None more touching than this one from Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. Mere hours after the news broke Megadeth was set to take the stage in Tokyo and even though he warned the audience he “could never sing like Chris”, honored Chris with a cover of “Outshined”.


“And I don’t even know what to say other than we’re gonna dedicate this next song to you, our friends in Tokyo, ’cause we’re here with you and we love you so much and we wanna celebrate Chris‘s life today. Now, I don’t sing like Chris, I could never sing like Chris, but we’re gonna sing a song right now. And if you know the words, sing with me. If you don’t know the words, then just make noise.”





RIP Chris.
