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.

* MrFanservice: The videos focus a LOT on Chris' looks. He even goes shirtless in the "Show Me How to Live" video.

** Although it's pretty muted, compared to some other examples he's produced ([[Music/RedHotChiliPeppers ''Californication'']] comes immediately to mind).
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their harder-rocking tunes are in the 5-7 range; they also did a variety of work that falls somewhat lower on the scale (much like Music/{{Soundgarden}} did, but unlike Music/RageAgainstTheMachine, who mostly had heavy songs).

* LighterAndSofter: Music/{{Soundgarden}} had a lot of psychedelic influences in their music, while RageAgainstTheMachine had funk-metal, rapping and political issues. Audioslave doesn't really have any of those things.

NotChristianRock: Audioslave's songs do deal with spiritual themes, particularly on songs such as "Show Me How To Live" (which directly invokes salvation through Christ because of his crucifixion), and "Like a Stone" (existential questioning of the afterlife). However, the band has no hard-line stance for the Christian religion, and such Christian themes are just an aspect of the band's overall introspective songwriting.

Audioslave is mostly famous for introducing Morello's mad guitar effects to a rock soundscape, as opposed to Rage's rap-oriented compositions. Initially the band's direction prohibited Morello and the two other guys to compose politically-charged songs, but eventually this rule was nulled[[hottip:*:Though really, even on the first album, "Hypnotize" was an exception]], most famously heralded by the band being the first American rock band to play in the Cuba's socialist soil (2005).
