The group recorded a handful of demos, first under the name Civilian (before discovering that name was taken) and then Audioslave (which in a weird coincidence, was ''also'' [[NamesTheSame taken by a British group]]; That band wound up changing their name). Their first album was released in 2002, essentially an amalgamation of their former bands' sounds: the grooving hard rock of Rage lead by the grungy singing of Soundgarden. They would together for two more albums, ''Out of Exile'' (2005) and ''Revelations'' (2006). Differences between [[FaceOfTheBand Cornell and Morello]] resulted in the band splitting up in 2007. Cornell then resumed his solo career and eventually reformed Soundgarden in 2010. Rage Against the Machine reformed too that same year, with de la Rocha on board.

The project initially began when members from both sides found themselves without a working band, which moved the Rage trio to do a couple of auditions and finally encountered Cornell. They recorded some demos under the arguably much cooler "Civilian," which Cornell objected to for sounding too political. The band's SelfTitledAlbum was released in 2002, essentially an amalgamation of their respective schools of sound: the grooving hard rock of Rage lead by the grungy singing of Soundgarden. This sound would remain more or less unchanged for their other two albums, ''Out of Exile'' (2005) and ''Revelations'' (2006). Differences between [[FaceOfTheBand Cornell and Morello]] resulted in the band being disbanded by 2007 Cornell then resumed his ultimately unsuccessful solo career before eventually reforming Soundgarden and the Rage eventually reformed proper with frontman Zach de la Rocha in 2010.

The remaining three members decided that they wanted to continue working band, which moved the Rage trio to do a couple of auditions together and finally encountered Cornell. They auditioned several A-list frontmen - including B-Real from Music/CypressHill - before bringing in Cornell.

* InNameOnly: Averted. While the band arguably could have chosen a better name, calling themselves anything other than Rage Against The Machine sealed that band's legacy for the time being.

The band expressed some interest in working together again in 2015, after Chris made a few well received guest appearances at Tom's solo shows, and a reunion happened in 2017 when Chris joined the rest of the band onstage at Prophets of Rage's "Anti-Inauguration" for President [[Creator/DonaldTrump Trump]], but a full reunion would never come to pass, as Chris [[AuthorExistenceFailure took his life]] in May 2017.

Music/{{Audioslave}} was an American HardRock {{Supergroup}}, basically Music/{{Soundgarden}} singer Chris Cornell fronting Music/RageAgainstTheMachine, minus the rapping and politics. The band was founded in 2001, and disbanded unceremoniously in 2007.

Music/{{Audioslave}} was an American HardRock {{Supergroup}} founded in 2001, and disbanded unceremoniously in 2007.

Basically it's like this: On one hand you take Music/RageAgainstTheMachine, with the rap thrown away; and on the other hand you take Music/{{Soundgarden}}'s vocal works. Then you mash them together hard that would be Audioslave. And true enough, the formation was like this:

The guys from Rage minus Zack de la Rocha:
* Tom Morello (guitars)
* Tim Commerford (bass)
* Brad Wilk (drums)

Plus the vocalist from Soundgarden:
* Chris Cornell

''(This lineup was constant)''

The project initially began when members from both sides found themselves without a working band, which moved the Rage trio to do a couple of auditions and finally encountered Cornell. When recording demos, they dubbed themselves "Civilian," which is somewhat cooler, but perhaps it sounds too much like a political band for Cornell's taste. The band's SelfTitledAlbum was released in 2002, essentially an amalgamation of their respective schools of sound, yet by the time the next albums, ''Out of Exile'' (2005) and ''Revelations'' (2006) were released, they haved moved on to create their own unique musical style. Differences between [[FaceOfTheBand Cornell and Morello]] resulted in the band being disbanded by 2007 Cornell then resumed his solo career (which exploded to little pieces with his 2009 album), and the Rage trio has since regrouped with their former frontman Zach de la Rocha.
