    Heard the new single Stay. Its alright.
  5. i wish it was heavier but oh well!
    i wasn't amazed by their new song on their website...reminded me of U2 a little...i really hope that they go the cochise/gasoline/shadows of the sun route rather than the like a stone/i am the highway route!
  6. ha, just in time for my bday!! :D

    On Sony's web site Cornell was quoted as saying this album would be "more rocking" than the first.

    I have to agree with you Superbassman, Cochise, Gasoline, Set It Off, Shadows of the Sun, that is rockin'.

    Whoever said it sounds like U2, I agree. I think I liked cornell's voice in this single more than anything else he's done with audioslave.

    I hope this song, 'Be Yourself', is not an indication of what the rest of the album sounds like. It's "OK", I guess, but I likes my tunes a bit more, uhhmm, LOUD AND RAUCOUS.

    Excuse me for that, I tend to get carried away with HARD ROCK MUSIC.

    Kinda reminds me of something that might have been on the Red Hot Chili's "By the Way" album. It amazes me that a band that was born from Rage could evolve or devolve (depends on your perspective) into this kind of sound. I too wish they'd go in a more "Cochise" type of direction. :meh:

    The batman soundtrack rumour had been denied by the band, sorry for this information.

    It will be cool to here what they do next. I really like that single " Like a Stone". :bassist:
  15. And they just renamed it "Be yourself". What an uninspired song that was.

    I'm thinkin' that the idea to pre-release this song was an A/R decision, not the band's and it was chosen because it isn't really raucous. Kinda tryin' to "appeal to all".


    "I hope it's better 'n that, I hope it's better 'n that, I hope I hope ..."

    I think the debut album from Audioslave is one of the best albums I have ever heard...not one single song I don't like on that album.

    Listening to this new tune....I don't dig it is my initial thought. I agree it's very U2'ish and although I think U2 is a great band....this sound is not what I'd expect or like from Audioslave....I expected different. This is very "top 40" and watered down/commercial sounding to me.

    Where's the heaviness???? :meh:

    Just my .02

    As much as I like Audioslave I am pissed off at them because Chris should be with Soundgarden (where he belongs) and RATM should be touring so I can see them. Bitches never think of the fans. :bawl:
  20. No, they just think about their music. I am a huge RAGE fan and I knew that Rage was at the end of it's life. It was hard for the band to grow, they only had one gear. With Chris in the band they have more gears to go through. I think it would be more interesting to be in Audioslave than rage.

    I heard that song "be yourself is all you can do" I liked the song but didn't like the lyrics. The lyrics read like a barney song.

    On a side note: if you like rage you need to buy the DVD of them playing live in California.
